*** Sanguine Sea Biography ***
Looking towards the future, with one eye firmly fixed on the past, Sanguine Sea consist of singer/songwriter Alan A. Redmond, originally from Dublin, Ireland, now based in Norwich, England, with occasional guest performances from local musicians. Alan A. wrote his first song "Travelling Show" at the age of 12 on a second-hand guitar, so big that his face wasn't visible for years, and has played in bands in Dublin and London.
Sanguine Sea now perform in many venues and bring the live original set nationwide to small venues and festivals. Since leaving Dublin at the age of 17, he has derived inspiration for his music through the people he has met and the experiences he has had, whilst living in Dublin, London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. The Band's original music aims to rip your heart out and feed it back to you, and is both emotive and in part, autobiographical. It focuses heavily upon melody within the body of each song. The band have been described as 'Scott Walker meets Crowded House in an Irish Bar', which is quite apt, as songs like "Out of the Blue", "In All of These Years" , "9 Months in the Wilderness" and "Swallow Me Up!" will confirm.
So, please stop by again and listen to the latest recordings; view gig-listings, , lyrics and videos; read reviews and news; ; post comments; join in with the new blog and generally take a dip into the inspirational waters of Sanguine Sea!
