PostSubject: Redlist   Sat Apr 28, 2007 2:01 am

Jeff's RedList project, which was started in 2001 has finally seen the light of day with it's exclusive release on iTunes worldwide. This stunning album of powerful and aggressive tracks was a new direction for Jeff as he endeavored to broaden his musical style even further and embark on what was at the time a very contemporary sound.

Jeff writes:

"RedList is a project I started back in 2001, feeling it was finally time to return to original music after laying low a few years with the Boogie Knights cover band. The early to mid 90's kind of pushed me away from what was happening in the current music scene until it started curving it's way into what led to the foundation of the RedList sound.

Originally, these new songs & style were aimed at a solo endeavor, a reinvention of sorts, something I longed to do as well as give me new legs as an artist. I was looking for a co-writer as well as someone who could help me produce this new sound so I put the feelers out & my good friend/longtime personal engineer John Ellis, told me about TWO guys he went to Berklee Music College in Boston that would fit the bill. He sent me a CD of bytes these guys were creating in the music house they worked for in NYC, churning out commercial jingles & soundtracks that were beyond impressive. Enter Neil Goldberg & Dave Fraser.

Neil was probably best known for his stint playing guitar with the metal band Annihilator & then went on to team up with Dave on this idea of working together in NY. Dave played keyboards for former REO Speedwagon guitarist Gary Richrath for a short time & went along with Neil when both found the tedium of original bands too frustrating. It wasn't till I contacted them & with major convincing did they commit to giving this a go for me.

As we went along, the songs we were creating started sounding more like a band & not a solo career which led to us finding a name that suited us. RedList for those who don't know is the title for the endangered species list…we sort of felt who we were & what we were doing fell right into that category!

We slaved on our sound for about 2 years until the realization of the industry once again halted our dreams. As the evolution of music & what sells versus what doesn't changed yet again, our only hopes of getting this stuff out was on an indy level which we weren't prepared to let it go to as well, we all found ourselves doing other things that consumed our time from being able to continue.

Fast forward to 2007, we still keep in touch & still discuss what could have been with these amazing, charged up rocking tunes which we have finally made arrangements to release on iTunes for the world to get their hands on it. As we agree, digital downloads are convenient & easy to attain but the consumer loses the aspect of holding a physical CD, we are creating a FREE downloadable PDF of the artwork which will be provided for those who want to burn their own disc & make the CD jewel case to go along with the album.

I hope you will enjoy this labor of love we made years ago, it is very different from things I have done both before & currently, it stands on it's own & will appeal to those who loved Linkin Park, Korn & Limp Bizkit. I bring you RedList!!

JSS"


The plans in the very near future are to create a new website
promoting the album which will have a FREE downloadable PDF of the
new artwork which will be provided for those who want to burn their
own disc & make the CD jewel case.

The track listing is as follows and are available on iTunes now!

1. World Today
2. Ain't Your Man
3. Migraine
4. Swallow
5. Ignorance
6. Mad Reign
7. Higher
8. Kingdom
9. Backstabber
10. Living Proof
11. Believe

Warning: Explicit lyrics.

This is a very different direction for Jeff, so turn up the volume,
stand well back and be warned, as you are about to witness what high
adrenaline music is all about. By the time you reach the melodic
tempo of the final track 'Believe' you will realise that you need to
remember to breath.

Don't forget to write a review on iTunes

I've been waiting for this to come out for a while now so I bought it the day it went to iTunes. If you like harder rock than what he normally does then you'll really like this.

I'm with you on this one, don't use Itunes (or any download site), still prefer physical formats. Hoping for a proper CD release someday!

Damn, I want this, but I don't use iTunes. Evil or Very Mad I use a MP3/media player that allows me to put any music formats on it. Razz I, too, long for the day that this is purchaseable by those who dare to go against the iPOO masses. Shocked And, no, I am not loading another music/media software on my PC -- I've got more than I need already. Mad

It's Zen all the way for me, baby! Cool

Hey Rocker Chic, I am all for making a stand, but not to have ITunes on a principle is a bit like cutting off one's nose to spite the face. When I was on PC I was frightened witless of the new technology - Napster et al gave me a chasm to the edge of my knowledge, but then I 'discovered', or was persuaded more like, to try ITunes - and I was hooked, not on downloading, but on having all my tunes in one place. One of my most used Christmas pressies was my Ipod - which I used first of all on my PC and then when I switched to MAC I converted it.

That Redlist wasn't universally available at first didn't deter me, what did was the thought that I might not like it - after all I am one of nature's conservatives when it comes to music. being with Jeff for 5+ years has taught me one thing, however, if he is involved then no matter what your personal tastes, the end product is always of the highest quality. This stuff fairly shimmers in a sea of heavy material. Damn it's so good.

Don't imagine, for a minute I'm chastising anyone here, because I am one of the industry's late adopters, perhaps I'm going to be the epitome of a 'silver surfer' and will be an old rocker to my roots.
