Cherry Red is a four piece pop rock powerhouse from Richmond, VA. The band formed to fill the need for lyrical pop with a rock backbone. Their sound is an ironic blend of gritty crashes and sweet melodies, feedback and catchy hooks, minimalist yet full, bitter yet sweet.
Cherry Red lyrics explore diverse themes in exhilarating new ways. Their all fired up and dangerous anthem “Keep Runnin’”, features lyrics that are cocky yet vulnerable, dangerous but inspiring. “Sugarpop” is a sweet and dreamy lullaby until it peels off at a powerful chorus. From the melodic yet sexy 60’s surf inspired “Kiss Me” to the provocative power ballad “Aint Nobody to Love, Cherry Red prides itself on honest lyrics that resonate deeply and full-throttle instrumentation.
Cherry Red has spent the past year polishing their sound and putting together a red hot stage show, opening for touring bands like Stagolee, Against Grace, and Hero Gets the Girl. They continue to write, to perform, and to build their fan base, and throughout it all, the connective thread running through their songs, their live shows and showmanship, and Cherry Red’s entire creative process are power and passion. Each song is a salute to the bad ass in all of us.
