Red Onion Purple began as a musical duo featuring Sean Burress (guitar) and Bethany Joyce (cello) in 2013. After a few years of experimenting with their sound and adding different members, the group coalesced into the spellbinding force that it is today with the addition of Joshua Chai (drums) and Cole Grant (bass). The ethos of the band is one of constant experimentation; treating each song as a separate world to traverse, going a little deeper with each iteration. Red Onion Purple's sound is accessible, yet hard to pin down; at times upbeat and whimsical, other times melancholy and mysterious. They play a mixture of original songs, jazz standards, and covers. Their first full length album will be available in 2021.
Red Onion Purple is the twenty-seventh performance in our series — 'Social Distance Sessions' — a live-stream production partnership between the ZACC and Missoula's Community Media Resource (MCAT). Shows will be streamed to the ZACC's Facebook and YouTube, and to MCAT's cable channel and Local Live website. Home audience members are asked to donate to the show's Givebutter 'virtual tip jar' if able (use Venmo, Paypal, or a credit/debit card).
