The Sim Redmond Band

Coming together out of Ithaca, NY's I-Town Records musical collective -- which seems to function in terms of collaboration and business practice much like Athens' Elephant 6 Recording Company -- the Sim Redmond Band is led by singer/songwriter Sim Redmond. Redmond (guitar/vocals), along with his brother Asa (drums), began playing music together while in their teens, cutting their teeth in small outfits like Ginger and the Ducktape Band. In the late '90s, the band began to solidify with the addition of bassist Dan Merwin and lead guitarist Jordan Aceto.

In 1998, Redmond encountered vocalist/songwriter Uniit Carruyo at an open-mic night at Collegetown Bagels, in Ithaca. Soon, she was in the band as well, and they began to play out with more frequency. The band recorded their debut album, The Things We Keep, in early 1999, which was subsequently released on the burgeoning I-Town imprint. The album established the band's airy sound, drawing from the worldbeat tradition of Paul Simon and Lucky Dube, a mix of distinctly American pop hooks with African arrangements. The band wasn't always convincing in their attempts at reggae, but managed to parlay it into something more interesting by playing up their strengths: knowing that they couldn't necessarily form a deep pocket, they emphasized the breeziness of the music to great success.

The group's second record, Good Thoughts, was released the following year, and greatly benefited from a higher production value, as well as the contributions of cellist Hank Roberts (another I-Town member) on several cuts. Though the band continued to tour and record at a hectic pace, laying down tracks for a new album, both Sim and Carruyo managed to find time to record and release solo discs -- Redmond contributing with Wishing Well, and Carruyo with Uniit. Soon after, Life Is Water -- the latest from the Sim Redmond Band -- was released. The band followed the release with their first national tour, including several gigs on a self-named I-Town Roadshow, which exposed the groups in many major markets for the first time. ~ Jesse Jarnow, Rovi

I found this band while living in south FL, via the Donna The Buffalo herd...

SRB IS THE BEST DARN LIVE ACT, CONSISTENT FROM SHOW TO SHOW, I HAVE EVER SEEN. HANDS DOWN...

thank you, Sim, for such mind blowing vibes.
They again have a new album out this year - "Room in These Skies". It's the best one yet, in my opinion!! You should update your records, Pandora!

I am also from Ithaca, and have seen them play live 7 or 8 times at GrassRoots, the Ithaca Commons, and at Ithaca Brewfest. They're just as good live as on their CDs, and even more fun because the crowd always simply falls in love with them. Go SRB!!!
