Who is Red Bird?
All the musicians in Red Bird have played concerts and festivals around the world (Spain, France, England, Canada, Italy, China, the US, etc.) Red Bird was formed out of mutual respect, friendship, and genuine love of playing music together. And it really shows in the quality of the performance and the contagious fun they have playing together. They take the stage intending to win the audience by capturing their attention, captivating them, taking them on a journey from the first note to the last.
Fronted by Bre Gregg (vocals) and Dan Gildea (guitar), Red Bird’s sound is led by powerful yet tender vocals with mind-bending guitar features. Bre and Dan are magic together organically sharing the lead in a way that brings both to the forefront. Jeff Langston (bass) and Charlie Doggett (drums) create driving rhythms you will feel. Dancing between soul and roots, their sound is both electrifying and intimate. You will be transported to a dimly lit music club, but somehow feel you are listening in your best friend’s living room.

What people are saying
“Just interviewed my favorite Portland band! If you like the music of Bonnie Raitt, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Patsy Cline or Nina Simone, you will love Red Bird’s music. ”
— Stephanie Kralevich, More Good Day Oregon (Fox 12)
“The result is a band that is unabashedly soulful with elements of blues and roots. Gregg’s formal vocal training is evident in her ability to trade in both tenderness and sheer force.”

Wow. I am deeply honored for this opportunity. I have the great pleasure of joining the ranks of some of my favorite musicians in Portland, including Anna Tivel, LaRhonda Steele, Edna Vazquez, Stephanie Schneiderman, Naomi LaViolette, Mariana Thielen and Reece Marshburn. Storm Large who was involved last year is on tour, so they asked me to step in! We have the great privilege of writing songs for homeless mothers to pass along to their children. Save the date for April 25th at the Old Church and listen to all of our creations! Learn more by clicking on the image to the left or visit www.oregonsymphony.org.
