With brand new songs burning a hole in her pocket all the way from Nashville, Brooke Russell brings her Mean Reds to the Post Office Hotel to headline for the first time. Songs about boozy nights, bad decisions, broken hearts and the best intentions, Brooke Russell and The Mean Reds blend vintage Americana with widescreen, dark country. Drawing influence from alt country, jazz and folk styles, the band are also inspired by the songs of Ryan Adams, Joe Henry, Sharon Van Etten, Gillian Welch, Tom Waits and Neko Case. After showcasing at the 2014 Americana Festival in Nashville, the band have just released a new EP, Never’s Gonna Take Too Long and will head back into the studio very soon with new material.
“Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds’ country-inflected take on timeless pop that you’ll dig if you like Caitlin Rose.” - Nashville Scene
