Scarlet Kings is a Nashville based country/rock band. Their blend of country, rock, pop and bluegrass seems to defy classification, yet, at the same time, is uniquely identifiable. Tasteful musicianship presents intelligent songwriting with a tight pop sensibility that is immediate and universal. The members of Scarlet Kings have an undeniable chemistry that makes their performances slick and polished with depth and soul. In August of 2007 Scarlet Kings began work on their self-titled debut release. Anticipation for the February 2008 release of "Scarlet Kings" was heightened by extensive internet promoting and performances aboard the Lyrnyrd Skynyrd "Simple Man" Cruise and the "Cayamo" cruise featuring Lyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris. Band members and brothers Josh (guitar) and Dan (drums) Edmondson, sons of producer/musician Carl Edmondson (Lonnie Mack), met singer Aaron Patrick on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, OH. Later joined by bassist Patrick Martin, the group began playing clubs and colleges around the Midwest. In early 2007 the group was completed with the addition of Mark Evitts on fiddle and guitar. Songs for the "Scarlet Kings" debut CD were handpicked from the best of the band's songwriting catalogue as well as co-writes with Danny Kortchmar (James Taylor, Don Henley) and Sam Hollander (Gym Class Heroes, Boys Like Girls). These songs were then meticulously assembled under the vision of producer Josh Edmondson with the help of engineer Mike Farona. In-studio contributions by musicians Tim May (Patty Loveless, Charlie Daniels), Tom Bentley (Joe Nichols) and Dean Holman (Joe Nichols, Ricky Skaggs) augmented the already rich sonic palate of Scarlet Kings. Scarlet Kings is quickly becoming one of the music industries most promising crossover artists. Their 2008 debut release, "Scarlet Kings", supported by innovative internet marketing and strategic touring, has enabled the band to entice an ever growing fan base with their unique yet universal music.
