Red Autumn Fall
Red Autumn Fall
Red Autumn Fall became the only band from Calgary to have sold out the 700 capacity MacEwan Hall twice! Ross was also the prime force behind the independent music festival Panacea, which showcased unsigned Calgary bands for three years, while raising money for the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. The group attracted high-profile management and was the buzz band at several music industry conferences. The group attracted high-profile management, was the buzz band at several music industry conferences and was being courted by various major labels. Then came the Accident. In the midst of a blizzard, they lost control of their van somewhere outside of Thunder bay, hit a semi and did a complete rollover into a ditch.
Shortly after, as they gave their report to the police, the car they were sitting in was rear ended by another van. Wait, it gets better. On top of all their other woes, they were snowed in for four days in a remote northern motel room. However, Red Autumn Fall came to the conclusion that the four of them were important to each other and they were determined to carry on. The group returned to Calgary, parted ways with their original management and started fresh.
They released an independent CD entitled Charmer which topped many western Canadian indie retail charts and was acclaimed by prestigious U.S. tipsheet "The Next Flash". They followed that up with the equally acclaimed EP Debutant before taking up more or less permanent residence in Toronto. Despite or because of an active social life, Red Autumn Fall then won the first MuchMusic Indie Showdown and Internet Battle of the Bands at this year's North By Northeast Music Festival. http://www.myspace.com/redautumnfall (from www.maplemusic.com) Read more on Last.fm.
