Fire Red is an all original hard rock band, pure and simple. The sound is a conglomeration of hard rock and blues influences from the early days rounded off by one of the most talented up and coming female vocalists of our time. Fire Red is a four piece band poised for success in the music industry, as the name suggests the band brings 'Fire' and Intensity to the stage leaving the crowd in awe after every performance. The band started in part in May of 2008, John Buondonno's guitar work is really where it all starts, the unique riffage and melodies that he creates are the basis of the Fire Red sound, this is what gives the music a feeling of movement and purpose. Shawn Coleman's unique drum work puts the hard edge to the rhythm, and creates the backbone of the sound. They needed a bassist that could bring the foundation of the band together with intense, deep driving basslines and through a want add, they found Bassist Jerod Bias. The foundation in place, the band needed a worthy vocalist to put the silver lining on the project, and through a mutual friend found Vocalist Michelle Jiminez, whose bluesy yet hard edge sound gives Fire Red the lift and creates raw emotion on stage. The band was now complete, a new name was needed, Fire Red was chosen to represent the attitude and philosophy of this fast rising act, to come out rocking hot like a flame! .
