Shades of Grace

by Red Baron

"Shades of Grace" is the natural progression of Red Baron's critically-acclaimed debut, "Paint the Town Red." The music itself has heavy fusions of gospel, jazz, blues, soul, rock and yet still rings true of hip-hop. Its content wrestles with some of the more compelling issues of our day--conversion, the intersection of race and faith, overzealous religious fervor, the search for companionship, satisfaction and purpose--all neatly packed into one incredible cd.
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap: Spiritual Rap

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Red Baron represents, literally and figuratively. He is an emcee and attorney who has crafted a stirring brand of music that is thought-provoking and relevant, honest and life-changing. He has garnered high compliments from hip-hop legends (EPMD, DJ Scratch), industry tastemakers (Mtv Correspondent Sway) and record executives (VP of A&R at Def Jam, Lenny S), in addition to having won the Grand Prize in the Hip-Hop Category for the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Competition; all of which has quickly made Red Baron one of rap music's best kept secrets.

Born in the bedrock of blues music, reared in the home of R&B, and classically trained in violin and piano, it would seem Red was destined to make music of some sort. His music fuses the blues, jazz, soul, R&B and rock, yet still rings true of hip-hop.

Red Baron found his voice as a musician while a student at Morehouse College, where he graduated in 2004. Shortly after graduating, he released his critically acclaimed debut, “Paint the Town Red." He is slated to release his highly anticipated second album, entitled, “Shades of Grace” on April 19, 2011.

Red has performed in various venues: colleges and universities, national conferences, churches, rehabilitation centers, detention centers, bars, clubs, and even a grocery store. He has shared the stage with hip-hop legends, established international artists, garnered local, national and international radio airplay, has won local and international songwriting competitions and has also won music industry showcases. Moreover, his material has been featured on an official mixtape (Empire State Mixtape Vol. 2) alongside material from some of the more prominent names in hip-hop (e.g. Jay-Z, Kanye West, Will.I.Am, Swizz Beatz, Lil' Wayne, T.I., Usher, Diddy, Neyo, Drake, Nikki Minaj, Rick Ross, etal). The forums have changed, the response has not.

Amid a time where most contemporary artists spin tales of lustful acts, violence, “bling-bling” dreams, etc., Red Baron’s content and potent lyrics set him apart. His music focuses on his faith and fulfilling his role as a husband, father, attorney and educator. Quite simply, his music is what a beautiful painting sounds like. Just listen, you'll know all you need to...
