Redgrave is Angie Mead (guitar, vox) and Stephen Howard (drums), a rock duo from Chicago.

‘National Act’ (Lovitt Records) available 6-12-12

Angie started writing and recording Redgrave songs in marathon stretches beginning August 2010 from her home in Chicago after furniture was moved into storage and replaced with recording equipment, drums and guitars. What started out as her scratch demos recorded through the audio of the video function from an old iPod Nano has since become a distinctive, cohesive 2-piece rock outfit.

Angie sent these demos to Chicago musician Stephen Howard (Pinebender, Ambulette).  They’ve been playing together as Redgrave since January, 2011.

Tim Rutili of Califone/Red Red Meat fame lends his guitar prowess to the track Gone to Wither, featured on the Redgrave debut 7″ (Lovitt Records, 9-26-11 ) with art design by David Yow, produced by Stephen Howard, recorded and mixed by Greg Norman at his studio in Chicago.

Angie enjoys rolling cigarettes, Detroit, and that one song about a 2-headed dog in Russia. Stephen enjoys cymbal hunting, playing with his cats and does not have any songs including lyrics about food in his music library.
