In addition to producing Until We Have Faces, Rob Graves also co-wrote the album. "RED has definitely been my pet project, a band I discovered and developed over the years" states Graves. "We've been fortunate to not only make some great music together, but also have some success. We've also been lucky enough to write with some great writers over the years, including Richard Marx, Ben Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) and Clint Lowry (SevenDust)."
In addition to RED, Graves is also enjoying Active Rock success with All That Remains (co-writer and co-producer on their current single "Hold On") and has enjoyed multiple top 10 Active Rock singles.
Next up for Graves is Brian "Head" Welch formerly of Korn, who sought out Graves to produce his own solo record. Then it's on to Maylene And The Sons of Disaster, co-produced with Brian Virtue (Deftones, 30 Seconds To Mars). With only weeks after signing with EMI, Graves landed the trailer for the video game "Crysis 2", and his songs have appeared in the Oscar-winning film "The Blind Side" and the recent "American Idol" Fox promo.
RED returns to Los Angeles next week for a performance on NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Wednesday, February 16. ("The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" airs weeknights at 11:30/10:30 CT).
