Brooke Russell & the Mean Reds

With songs about boozy nights, bad decisions, broken hearts and the best intentions, Brooke Russell and The Mean Reds blend country, blues, folk and swing to appease their love of all things vintage. Culminating in a kitchen in Fitzroy North, The Mean Reds are based in Melbourne and consist of Brooke Russell on voice, guitar and mandolin, Grant Taylor on lead guitar, Ben Franz on double bass, Tilman Robinson on backing vocals and trombone and Josh Barber on drums. 

Drawing influence from swing, alt country and trad jazz, the band are also inspired by the songs of Ryan Adams, Joe Henry, Gillian Welch, Tom Waits and Neko Case. With a new recording on the way, Brooke and the fellas can be found in a dark bar near you, swooning and serenading. Join the band on their facebook page, mailing list or twitter to find out about gigs and news.
