White Owl Red’s unique musical aesthetic, continues to break typical genre boundaries by delivering simply great music. Written from the heart, Afterglow takes us on a thoughtful emotional journey that profoundly explores themes of love, loss and redemption. White Owl Red, challenges us with "provocative lyrical commentary… polarizing and unifying in narrative” writes Music Existence, “in today’s plasticized music business, this makes it quite the rare find indeed"
Singer/Songwriter Josef McManus’s anticipated fourth White Owl Red album continues to explore the messy complexity of contemporary culture and values with both ferocity and vulnerability. These ten songs embrace musical innovation without pandering to formula.
Fusing country, indie rock, folk and Americana influences, McManus’s musical alchemy propelled his previous full-length album Existential Frontiers to extraordinary international critical acclaim garnering crossover airplay on Americana, alt.county, roots, folk, indie rock, AAA and non-com. The album was hailed by Music Writer/Critic David Masciotra as a “an album of philosophy meets alt.country.” Music Critic Bobby Moore wrote, Existential Frontiers “tackles deep questions” with a “postmodern attitude”.
Naked and Falling, the second studio album by White Owl Red received international acclaim and airplay in 2017 and 2018. It charted on the AMA top 100 Chart, the FAR Chart top 10 and the Root 64 airplay chart top 20. Naked and Falling was distinguished in the top 100 albums of 2017 by Alternate Root Magazine. Americana Ash, the 2014 debut album by White Owl Red charted and remained on the AMA charts for 14 weeks.
