Red Betty
Music - Pop, Rock
This New York City band believes that a song with a great lyric and a rich melody reigns supreme. RED BETTY delivers a sound that is fresh and dynamic, drawing on folk, pop and rock influences. Yahz, songwriter, singer and founding member of the band, has been on the New York City scene for the last several years. When Yahz brought together the musicians that would become RED BETTY in March ’99 she knew that she had found the right vehicle for her songwriting. Chris Swope, the band's guitarist and contributing songwriter, hails from Kansas City, Missouri and has toured extensively through the Midwest with original bands. Chris’s guitar playing is both emotional and melodic, weaving perfectly with Yahz’s vocal lines. Bassist Nicholas D'Amato brings his wide musical experiences and influences to the band. Nicholas has played everything from jazz to show music to country and swing. Mat Deveau, the band's drummer, is originally from Toronto, Canada but has traveled the world playing the drums in a variety of musical styles. RED BETTY’s second CD, Swim, was released in April 2000. The five songs that make up Swim were co-produced by the band and Ernie Fortunato at Ernie’s studio in New Jersey. Swim is available for purchase at all the major online music stores such as cdnow.com and amazon.com. RED BETTY’s debut CD, Sister Rubber Limbs, was produced by John Ashton, formerly of the Psychedelic Furs, and features his guitar playing. The CD was recorded at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY and released in 1998.  Yahz recorded the album before forming the current line-up.
