Red and Reckless is a Alt-Rock band from Chicago, fronted by recording artist Esh (e-shh) The Singer. Gaining the majority of her industry experience by writing, recording and touring as a powerful background vocalist, Esh began her solo career with band Red and Reckless in 2009. Esh struck out on her own, forming her own ace backup band consisting of Terence Lee (bass, producer, music director), Nick Jaffe (guitar, producer, vocals), and Myron Cherry (drums); all who have worked with famous performers such as Common, Estelle, Dwele, Ice Cube, Syleena Johnson, and many others.
Red and Reckless released their debut EP, “You Should Know Me”, in the summer of 2012. The EP is an all-out hard rock effort, that echos the likes of late 70’s/early 80’s heavy metal/punk/new wave icons. “Her very presence on area rock stages has shaken notions of what a black woman can do in the subgenre, dominated by white men.”- Cole Waterman (Examiner.com, December, 2012). Esh won over the Midwest’s hearts and ears after appearing on Milwaukee’s Fox 6, American Idol in 2010.
In 2013, Red and Reckless secured a opening spot at Summerfest, one of the world's largest Music Festival. Moving like they were on a major-label, receiving rave reviews from Summerfest and local shows around the Midwest the Wisconsin Area Music Industry featured the band on their website in 2013 and nominated Esh "female vocalist of the year" for 2013-14.
Red and Reckless prepares to release their highly anticipated full-length album in 2014 with out of town tour dates.
