Redfella Records of Marquette announced the signing of Marquette-based rock band Skronat to a recording contract. The signing of Skronat, a talented band of Marquette residents, marks the first occasion Redfella has officially offered a contract to a recording artist.
The members of Skronat: Bud Clowers, Cameron Leedle, Dennis Farney, and Steve Gustafson, have been playing gigs throughout the U.P. since 2008. In that time, Redfella CEO Andrew Lorinser was able to catch several of the group’s performances and was impressed by the member’s abilities as musicians, and their ability to draw an audience to their shows.
While the details of Skronat’s record contract with Redfella Records have not been made public, Lorinser has announced that the group will be releasing a full-length album of original material later this year, and will make numerous live performances this spring and summer. “Redfella is extremely excited to offer this unique experience to such a talented band.” Lorinser said. “We look forward to introducing Skronat to music lovers throughout the Midwest and beyond.”
