How many times have you stumbled across a band at a festival or while sorting through the limitless pages of the Internet and thought to yourself, “why aren’t these guys famous?” That’s exactly the thought I had when I came across, The Well Reds, an Alt-Pop Rock quartet from Atlanta consisting of Front man Jeremy Ezell, drummer Torin Degnats, and brothers Sean and Rex Crawford.
I was introduced to the band via their new single Do You Still Love Me, a catchy song with great instrumentation that had my subconscious hitting repeat long after my first listen. Describing their music as “heavy on harmonies and hooks” Do You Still Love Me fits perfectly into that space and was released a few months back as a teaser to their forthcoming album, Volume, scheduled to drop this November.
Traveling the country in a van that just clicked past 100,000 miles and opening for acts such as Hot Chelle Rae and Daughtry, The Well Reds are putting in work and growing their fan base. A fan base that funded their sophomore efforts thanks in part to a successful Kickstarter campaign in late 2013, enabling the quartet to focus on creating their forthcoming body of work and jump in the studio with Grammy award winning producer Joseph Prielozny.
With only 6,500 views combined between their two previously released music videos for Carousels and BPM, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, numbers do lie. Social media numbers i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and plays on Youtube which at times seem to be a prerequisite of a bands stature in the industry do not dictate the value of a band. At times it simply comes down to people being told it’s ok to like something or someone. This is me telling you, it’s ok to like The Well Reds.
