is the debut album from Redd Knight. Listen to the music and you’ll know that Redd
was a labor of love into which he poured his memories and emotions, a lot of fun, and a little piece of his soul.
A software architect by trade, playing guitar and songwriting provided a much needed outlet for his creative energies. After putting it off for many years, he decided it was time to start recording. He kept the project on the down-low until he knew the music was ready for release--any mention was offered only in passing to his family and friends until he had the CD master in hand and the cover art ready to roll.
Redd cites the unfortunate and sudden loss of his mother, Joan, as a catalyst for embracing singing and songwriting. A loving and energetic woman, Joan’s influence on her oldest son was significant. The final song in the Redd compilation, In the Quiet Times, is a tribute to the positive and lasting effect her beautiful life had on Joan’s family. “The Mom Song,” as he calls it, “is a song I had to do.”
With his mother’s passing came a wake-up call. Redd started out first with songwriting, then became more comfortable with singing and recording what he’d written. After performed a few of his songs for others, it gave him the confidence to put the finishing touches on the first of what promises to be many Redd Knight musical productions.
I Love the Way You Look At Me is a heartfelt, happy song about Redd’s passion for his beautiful wife, Lisa, who has been the love of his life for many years. Sexy Texas Woman and The Wind Blows Toward Austin best describe how Redd and his family have embraced Texas as their home. Undoubtedly the most fun of all the songs to write, It’s A Good Time For A Good Time will keep your toe tapping and put a smile on your face.
Redd is an enthusiastic supporter of indie music. Now, he has an independent project of his own to share. Redd was created for the love of music. He would say that he’s okay just sharing it with anyone who cares to listen. Fortunately he’s agreed to make Redd available for others to enjoy.
