Will Hoge has made a career of writing and singing powerful songs about life's cruel and dark turns. Not long ago, he fell victim to one such turn.
As Hoge rode his scooter home from the studio, he was struck by an oncoming van that had veered into his lane. There were no skid marks. Launched off his bike, Hoge ended up bloodied, broken-boned, temporarily blinded, and near death.
"[The accident] was like stopping a record as it spins," says Hoge, who had been halfway through recording material for his new record before getting derailed. "It was like taking the needle and pushing it off the turntable."
For ten months, the accident sidelined Hoge. For ten months, it made him do something he hadn't done in 18 years: stop the music. Larger matters dominated his life, like physical recovery and the well-being of his family. "People would say, 'I bet you're ready to get back to playing and writing.' I'm thinking, 'Playing or singing is not the issue right now. I'm ready to get back to walking.'"
Red Wanting Blue
Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but could be America's local band. For years, singer and songwriter Scott Terry has gone about logging thousands of miles throughout the nation's heartland, leading the group through hundreds of shows and making fans one at a time.
With positive word of mouth following the band from town to town and an unwavering ambition to keep on traveling, Red Wanting Blue soon developed an exceedingly devoted following in and around the Midwest, where Red Wanting Blue began selling out clubs typically reserved for national names.
In 2010, following several self-released albums, Red Wanting Blue signed its first record deal and in 2012 released From The Vanishing Point (Fanatic Records/Caroline/Capitol) which went on to debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and earn press from Rolling Stone and NPR and appearances on VH1 and The Late Show with David Letterman.
Touring in support of From The Vanishing Point in 2013 has brought Red Wanting Blue to the rest of the US and Canada, where Terry's passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, let the band's newest fans in on tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived life on the road.
Traveling with Terry are band mates Mark McCullough (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Greg Rahm (Keys, Guitars, Organ, Vocals), Eric Hall, Jr. (Guitars, Lap Steel, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals) and Dean Anshutz (Drums, Percussion, Glockenspiel), who together build this band's unshakable sound.
Red Wanting Blue is currently recording the follow-up to From The Vanishing Point and will launch a nationwide tour in the fall of 2013 ahead of a projected new album release in 2014.
