New teen-fronted band Red Voodoo release first single “Rise Up” with Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon
Red Voodoo hail from Sacramento California and are all in their teens save for a 21-year old drummer. Sporting a classic rock sound their first single “Rise Up” has apparently been influenced by their view of the current Covid-19 situation around the globe and how we can all rise against the pandemic. They list their influences being Van Halen, Montrose and Sammy Hagar. The band has even borrowed its name seemingly from Hagar‘s studio album called Red Voodoo.
From their website:
“Formed in 2018, Red Voodoo features the lead vocal skills of 17 year old Dino (who is influenced by Sam Cooke, Mark Farner of Grand Funk, and Otis Redding thus bringing a very unusual vocal ability to a band of this age group), the band places a huge emphasis on quality vocals. This is also heard in the harmony backing vocals of Davin and Andrew to enhance the band’s sound. Nick’s drumming however leans more to the progressive influences of Neil Peart, and this brings a colorful melodic tom tom approach to his drumming which is also a rarity in today’s music.
Being fans of 80’s music and local icons Tesla, Dino had heard about Frank’s skills as an engineer and producer of studio recordings from his father. As it turns out, Frank had recorded demos for Dino’s father in local bands 30 years ago. Dino and his dad attended a Frank solo concert and Dino sat in to sing the Tesla classic “Getting Better.” The guys then discussed the idea of having Frank coach the band on songwriting and recording a debut single for Red Voodoo. Now the team is working on developing the band even further.”
The video was produced by Tesla‘s Frank Hannon and his organization Frank Hannon Productions.
