"NOBODY EP review: "...The influences run the gamut from Jimi Hendrix and The
Paul Butterfield Blues Band to Pavement and Folk Implosion and encompass rocking
blues and classic rock to folk and 90's grunge..It is also stated that their lead
guitarist, Ronnie Wheeler, is sort of a mad scientist as he expands their sound
with alternative tuning, feedback and a bottle slide that generates some awesome
effects and sounds. “Nobody and Me” sees Anne kicking the bottom into
a mid-tempo late 60's underground sound with a retro-mod feel. “Darcy”
is an alternative rocker with some interesting rhythm changes and cool guitar work.
“Break It By” has a detectable British sound that one would have heard
during the invasion back in the day. One the the best on this EP! “Crystal
Moon” reflects on what's happening today in its makeup and composition, alternative
radio would love this! “To Find Her” has a very simple folksy sound
that is refreshing. “Jumper” is just totally incre" Michael
"Jacobs" McKenna, Steel Notes Magazine
"Red Gretchen made the 30
Most Promising Acts of 2014!" Charley Crespo, The Aquarian Weekly
"...It is refreshing to find
bands that are not trying to be the “next big things,” but who are playing
music simply for the love of playing original music live before a small audience
of friends. Such is the case with Red Gretchen, a New York-based band which has
recorded an album, Crystal Moon, and is trying to find its way into the local band
circuit. First, let us quickly get past the novelty that the band is 75 percent
female. Ronnie Lee Wheeler on lead guitar/vocals, Nancy Pollak on rhythm guitar/vocals,
Anne Husick on bass, and Shauna Westgate on drums play simple pop songs often infused
with a gritty, psychedelic guitar sound. Given the proper stage, the band may appeal
to old-time fans of the Grateful Dead or modern fans of indie-rockers Yo la Tengo." Charley
Crespo, The Manhattan Beat
