"..Red Peralta's passionate performance, delivered with finesse and grace, entices the audience to let go and share the experience...A bluesy, mystical voice, driving acoustic guitar and irresistably funky stompbox create a lean, mean "one woman band"... With sassy wit she bares her soul, bringing her audience, toes tappin' all the way, right along with her. Press reviews have likened Ms. Peralta to Eartha Kitt, Grace Slick, Patti Smith and Marianne Faithful; her songwriting has been compared to Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Petty, Tommy James and the Shondells, Roger McGuinn and Levon Helm. Not to be missed!" - Clara Kent

A charismatic singer and prolific songwriter, Red's songs are populated by hobos, flowers, telepathy, motherhood, eternity, war, peace, housework, reincarnation, insanity, rage, childhood, old age, rivers, oceans, stars and a few X boyfriends....

Red was born in New York City, but grew up in England. She cut her performing teeth playing clubs in Europe for ten years, before returning to the USA where she collaborated with the late producer Steve Burgh (John Prine, Willie Nelson, Steve Forbert), who produced her first album, "Water Planet", and introduced her to a family of East Coast folk and roots musicians, some of whom she still works with today.

Red disappeared for several years to raise 2 boys ("..I think I'm getting the hang of it now...").

She returned in July, 2008 with a new Rebel Red album, "Sex, Religion, Politics", featuring guitarist Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, Crosby, Stills and Nash) and saxophonist Erik Lawrence (Levon Helm).
