COMMENTS

The band materialized from definitely humble beginnings. From garage-type free-for-all sessions, to paying homage to classics, to their line-up that never really changed, Redwing evolved into a group of talented musicians. They dominated the local music scene in the early '90s helping bands like Smilin' Jack, Stone Sour and Slipknot with their first big gigs. The first album, 'About Time', debuted to wide success across the Midwest. Shortly thereafter, Kip Heberlin left the band and Jim Corigliano was brought in to take over bass duties.

A second album was recorded but eventually was left on the spool as the constant gigging finally took its toll on members of the band. The album was released finally in 2012, 15 years after the recording had concluded. It was their Swan Song. To this day, all six members remain close friends and play a show at least once a year.
