After realizing she wasn't another flake musician, Sean called Georgia back and scheduled a time to get together. Georgia, who had already played under the name 'A Shade of Red' for a year, had been looking for a percussionist (not just a drummer). Since the first time they jammed together, it was band-chemistry. Georgia already had weekly gigs booked and Sean was thrust into them almost instantly, but his improvisation skills paid off. A Shade of Red quickly earned a gig as house musician for a local coffee shop chain, Boston Stoker, where they played once a week purely acoustic for hours. A Shade of Red evolved into a full rock band, minus most of the rock band members, as they began using electric guitars more often. Still, they've held on to that 'indie-hippie thing' by using frequent hand drums which pulls in folks off the street. A Shade of Red enjoys a large Dayton following devoted to both their loud rock music and their mellow acoustic sets. Georgia and Sean listen to a variety of music - from Chairlift, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Cranberries to Blind Melon, Led Zeppelin, and Dave Mathews Band. They combine their different tastes to form a unique sound and enjoy the challenge of being in a duo. After all, with less people you have to be creative in order to get THAT desired sound. It can be harder, but way more fun!
