See them Kick Off a West Coast Tour in Vegas Sept 21 at Triple B's!
REDLIGHT KING’s Mark “Kaz” Kasprzyk wants everything to be authentic. His father taught him that nothing comes easy, and he was right. The grit and texture you hear in the band’s music is borne of time on the road and the high and low points of being a recording artist over the years. With Julian Tomarin, Mark Goodwin and Brian Weave added into the mix, and hot singles like “Lift The Curse” hitting the airwaves the band’s upcoming release, MOONSHINE, is sure to win fans of all sorts of real music, rock and otherwise.
REDLIGHT KING’s Blues-tinted current single, "Lift the Curse,” produced by Jimmy Messer (Awolnation, Kygo, Shawn James), has been featured on 4 official Spotify playlists - All New Rock & Volume, Rock Your Block and Most Wanted Rock – as well as on New Music Friday at Spotify Canada. Radio airplay has grown with adds from KIOZ, KQXR, KHTQ, WKIT, WZRK, KDDX, KCVI, KEDJ and 18 weeks of airplay at SCRATCH N’ SNIFF stations!
"Lift The Curse" sounds bad-ass in the mix…Every time we spin it, we get hits all over the country from people wanting
to know who it is… The best raw guitar riff since Smoke on the Water!!! "
-Malcolm Ryker (Skratch 'N Sniff)
Redlight King has 80 million streams across Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora & YouTube, with close to 250,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone. A previous single, "Bullet in My Hand" debuted at #3 on the Billboard Alt & Rock charts and "Old Man" (which featured a vocal sample from the man himself, Neil Young) hit #15 Billboard Alt & Rock charts. Pretty good for a wordsmith from Hamilton, Ontario (the Pittsburgh of Canada)…
Redlight King’s music has been featured in films including The Italian Job, Draft Day, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers, heard on TV programs such as Malcolm in the Middle and Person of Interest and in Sports events with Nascar, NFL, CFL, NHL, NBA, and Major League Baseball. The band was named ESPN Artist of the Month in May of 2019. For a former member of the Canadian National Olympic Judo team, the sports exposure is particularly special to the frontman.
The importance Mark places on these cultural institutions (movies, sports, etc) is as much a part of him as the music is. “Culture and respect for cultures other than our own, is what brings us together as human beings,” explains the singer/songwriter who can say “Hello, nice to meet you” in countless languages.
Plans to take the songs from MOONSHINE on the road, throughout the US now (and worldwide, later to test his language skills) are in progress, starting with a West Coast run.
