Red Skies Mourning at Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grill (La Plata)
May 6 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
One life. Many Journeys. That is the tale of the eternally talented Red Mourning Skies. A solo artist and multi-instrumentalist, Red Mourning Skies is one of the finest examples of a musician searching for his groove and arriving in the moment with a new sound that transcends all his previous work. From military service to the stage, he is greater than the sum of all of his parts and an artist on the cusp of individual greatness. Making music is never an overnight process. It takes years and many stops and starts to discover the right mix that reflects the full palette of experience. Red Mourning Skies aka Chris Aleshire is no different, but exceptional at the same time. His deep-seated love for Rock, Pop, Rap, Hip Hop and R&B is seeing him today produce exquisite Rock/Pop songs that are simply outstanding. Based out of Bowie Maryland, he has played in Metal, Hardcore, Punk and Rock bands which makes his transformation even more incredible. Playing in bands, he started Hardcore bands Carved In Stone, Erase The Past and Taken By Force. This gave him the opportunity to perform at iconic venues CBGBs (NYC), Nations (DC) and The Underworld (London) in support of acts including Bad Brains, Suicidal Tendencies, GWAR, Mastodon, Shadows Fall, and Madball. He then pursued being a lead singer and rhythm guitarist in various Maryland cover bands that covered Queen, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, GnR, Soundgarden, Green Day, Motley Crue, Alice in Chains, U2, Tupac, Vanilla Ice etc sharing the stage with Lit, Paul Reed Smith Band and more. That outstanding pedigree would see most artists stay in their own lane, but not Red Mourning Skies. Leaving his comfort zone behind in 2020, he is releasing tracks that bely the raw emotions of previous incarnations and producing tracks that display a tenderness and resolute determination to write songs that will appeal to audiences around the globe. Soulfully crafting songs that feature harmonies and melodies that complement his warm and enchanting vocals, his creations are a testament to a life well-lived. From his stunning debut ‘Signs From You’, to his latest track ‘Lost Without You’, his song writing is displaying all the credentials of an artist at the top of their game. Intelligent, authentic and still retaining a portion of the rock swagger that still burns bright within his soul, Red Mourning Skies is better now than he has ever been before. As 2022 brings an exciting age of musical possibilities to an adoring public, Red Mourning Skies is a clear example of how people can change and reshape the future. Heralding a brilliant new dawn that will wash over audiences in ways unimagined, he has built a place where everyone can bask in the unique genius of his work.
