Signal Red made their mark in 2018 with the release of “Under the Radar”. The band is made up of outstanding musicians principally Guitarist Steve Grocott and Vocalist Lee Small. The collaboration first came together in February, 2013 when Steve was at a loose end. He had been in a band previously called “Sevendayz” which had recently folded and he contacted Lee as he had heard so much about him, mainly from the self-titled SHY album that appeared in 2011. The two hit it off straight away and it seemed inevitable that an album would follow.
Steve got caught up working with the UK band “Ten” as Gary Hughes asked him to be in the bands line-up for some shows and to feature on the new album, so the debut Signal Red release was halted for a while. Eventually Steve’s time freed up so he could once again concentrate on new material for the album and the whole thing has just progressed into a fantastic recording.
The collaboration with Lee is clearly a good match as Lee has already proved his worth with “Shy” more recently “Lionheart” as well as solo albums, the Phenomena project and rock band “Snowfall”.
Lee is a very soulful, melodic vocalist and his voice suits Signal Red perfectly. The debut caused quite a stir with its strong melodic rock roots and this new album “Alien Nation” is an extension of that robust rock sound that they have already proved themselves worthy of. We have here 11 tracks of sheer quality and Steve’s playing shines through on all tracks.
A one to watch out for!!!
