Red Bazar formed in 2007 with Andy Wilson on guitar, Paul Comerie on Drums and Mick Wilson on bass and keyboards. The trio released their debut album in 2008, 'Connections' which was an instrumental album. It was very well received by the prog world and excellent reviews from around the world.
The following year they started work writing and recording the follow up album 'Differential Being' which again was an instrumental album. The album was released in 2010 and this too received excellent reviews and saw the band move forward, making a video to the first track (Paragon) from the album and undertaking a series of gigs.
The band's next release was a three track EP 'After The Ice Storm' released in 2013. This used more keyboards, allowing them to create a wider variety of sounds. The EP also received glowing reviews.l
The use of more keyboards made it difficult for the band to play live as Mick was juggling between keyboards and bass, so the band took the decision to find a keyboard player. After a long search and many auditions, along came Gary Marsh. He was perfect and was promptly added to the band's line-up towards the end of 2013.
Since then, the band have continued to write material, but wanted to try something different. This resulted in a collaboration with vocalist Peter Jones, who had already released his own album 'Cocoon' under the name of 'Tiger Moth Tales' (www.tigermothtales.com). Through 2014 and 2015 the band wrote and recorded the songs for 'Tales from the Bookcase' which is a collection of musical stories, many of which are based on Pete's favorite books. The album is to be released early in 2016 by White Knight Records (www.whiteknightrecords.co.uk).
A series of gigs to promote the album will be announced later this year. The band will also be performing Pete's music later this year including Summer's End Festival (U.K) in October.
