Joy In Red / Bio

Joy In Red came together one summer night on an East Durham porch with the meeting of banjo and guitar. The realization came that, “we really need to put some drums behind this”. It was a creation never meant to aspire beyond the celebration of friends shaking the days dust, the gathering of intentions, dreams, aspirations, where like minds shed their frustrations and openly express their convictions, those conversations meant for kind ears and guarded from outside toils.

We are Matthew of the dark folk duo Sequoya, Rob Beloved of the rebel rooted pop punk duo Beloved Binge and Mike Wright of Seattle’s prog rock Byproduct and German alternative indie rock band Cairo. Joy In Red is the jubilant riot we hope to incite, those things said among friends that should be shared with all we meet and care to know. We could hope for no better reaction than: should I dance, fight or stand my ground and raise my hands to rejoice in a community that each day expands a step further than the front porch ever intended.
