Red House Band
Way back in 1969, a junior at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, WA, who was a budding rock singer and bass guitarist, was approached by a couple of school mates to join their band. The singer was Tim Scott, who later established himself securely in the Northwest before embarking on a 25 year journey through the Music Mecca of Los Angeles. The bandmates were drummer/vocalist Robin Crane and guitarist Mark Noftsger, both of whom made their marks as veteran musicians, plying their craft up and down the West Coast. After graduation, these three forged their first pro working band in the Top 40 circuit before going their separate ways. In the early 80’s, Tim founded a Seattle band with his friend, legendary guitarist Rich Dangel, called The Reputations. Highly respected in the NW musical community and heavily booked in the local bar scene, that band won the very first Seattle Music Award for Best R&B Band. Early on, the original keyboardist left, making way for singer and Hammond organist Jimmy Holden of the illustrious Holden musical empire. Together, they dominated the blues/R&B/Soul and Funk end of the NW scene until Tim embarked on a journey to Los Angeles, taking his career to the next level. A level that would have him sharing the stage with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Eric Clapton—touring with Tower of Power, Robben Ford, Etta James and Dave Mason. Robin moved to Sacramento & LA, playing & studying recording techniques. Mark joined the US Army–serving and playing in Hawaii. Jimmy spent several years touring Asia and Italy, living in Hong Kong for a time. Fast forward over 30 years, they have, one by one, returned to their native soil, their roots and as fortune and alchemy would have it, co-created a new project—Red House. Since forming, they have performed at Mt. Baker R&B Festival 17, Sunbanks R&B Festival 2015, 10th Porterhouse Brewfest, North Bend Blues Walk 2014 & 2015, Lincoln Theater w/ Coco Montoya, Snohomish Taste of Music, IBC Finals 2014, WBS Blues Bash, Indigenous Cultures Day @ EMP Museum and clubs all around the Puget Sound area.
BLUES AND BEYOND
Red House isn’t just a Blues band. They embrace many of the idioms that sprang from the Blues–R&B, Soul, Funk and even a little Jazz. And each musician brings to the table almost 50 years of experience and expertise. That’s one reason why Red House is the band other bands come to see. Their first recording, a 4 song EP, titled “Over Yonder”, was released in 2017. The cover art is an original painting by Tacoma’s own Little Bill Englehart and the disc is available for purchase now—one cover tune and 3 original songs. They are currently back in the studio recording a full length follow-up CD. If you haven’t heard Red House, check them out. You’ll be glad you did.
Drawing inspiration from genre-blending trailblazers like Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, and Jack White; Cory’s songwriting is a throwback to an era where the song was the king. His ability to write straight from the heart, impactful lyrics, along with innovative yet familiar guitar riffs, sets Cory apart from most.
Born and raised in the small town of Sedro-Woolley, Cory’s passion for music and songwriting began at young age, with a heavy influence of Country music from legends like Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Garth Brooks. It wasn’t until the age of 13, when his father brought home the Stevie Ray Vaughan album “Texas Flood,” that Cory decided to pick up the guitar. Often saying that there are way too many influences to list, Cory sums up his guitar background as follows- “I play guitar because of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) changed the way I thought about guitar, and Warren Haynes confirmed it all!”
Cory has played all over Western Washington in numerous bars and clubs, as well as, some of the regional festivals in the area; sharing the bill with acts like- The Steepwater Band, Popa Chubby, Walter Trout, and Southern Avenue.
Whether it be an intimate acoustic setting in a small crowded bar room; or a powerhouse, guitar heavy performance on a festival stage; fans of every age are taken aback by Cory’s ability to “make you wanna stop and listen.” With his powerful yet tasteful guitar playing, and soulful vocals that come straight from heart, Cory brings a depth to his performances that none can ignore.
