RedEyeRiot Trevor Perfect

Red Eye cover raw social, emotional and political issues, based on the foundation that every song should carry a message. Red Eye is centred on the music and lyrics of Trevor Perfect and features guest vocalists. Trevor plays all the instruments, slowly building up tracks and adding each instrument, layer by layer, until the song is complete. Red Eye aim to address the lack of protest songs that exists today, compared with the rich tapestry of protest songs and singers of the past. To quote Patti Smith, “it is important ... to communicate, to wake people up ... We all have a voice. We have a responsibility to exercise it, to use it.” Further information, including the lyrics, can be found at www.red-eye.org.uk.

Reviews of the first album A Riot Calls my Name have said:

“Unlike the majority of today's popular music [Red Eye] tackles extremely difficult subject matter ... with the melody and arrangement that is both haunting and enchanting” ”The lyrics are top notch, the melody is genius in its simplicity and the singer is absolutely phenomenal. Check it out.” ”Great vocals by Heidi Vogel - who contributes a combination of Nina Simone, Sade and Adele in her voice” while the lyrics are “poetry set to music that tell stories”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
