Bio: The Past
Red Box are true pioneers.
The band, led by singer-songwriter-producer Simon Toulson-Clarke and augmented by a mix of talented players, first hit the headlines in the 1980s, with a world-flecked sound that brought Pop-meets-Tribe together well before the term ‘World Music’ was coined.

“Red Box Plenty (Cherry Red) If you’re old enough to remember the heady days of 1986, there’s a good chance that you’ll remember Red Box’s two synth-pop anthems ‘For America’ and ‘Lean on Me’. ‘From the very, very young to the very, very old, everyone…’ was singing along – then they disappeared. Now, a quarter of century later, singer-songwriter Simon Toulson-Clarke has reemerged with a little gem of an album. Gone are the synths, replaced by acoustic guitars and lush folky strings. Gone are the pop hooks replaced by touchingly innocent and vulnerable ballads of love, loss and redemption. Surprisingly dreamy stuff. Tim Arthur”
