Autumn Red are folk, alt country band from Brighton. They have been described by local media as "...one of Brighton's best live bands" and are known for their intense and atmospheric live sets to packed out venues. Despite the use of all acoustic instruments, they attack their songs with all the passion and anger of the early 90's Seattle bands. They bring a dark Gothic element to the alt country sound. “Lead by accomplished banjo playing front man Lloyd Williams whose adrenaline fueled performance turned every head in the room, Autumn Red played the sort of music you’d be happy to have on, on a late summer afternoon while you sipped a frosty beverage sat out on your front porch.” Review from wohomusic 2010” Lloyd Williams solo album " dead fools gold" in june 2010 saw a string of sell out shows on the London circuit. “A lot of the music Autumn Red played ended with a long acoustic section, almost giving the songs an ‘other worldly’ sort of feel. Particular favourites were ‘Long Way Down’ and ‘Moonlit’ that mellowed out the crowd, really demonstrating the musical ability of the band. The melodic and sometimes mournful lyrics, accompanied by the rhythmic, hypnotic string section gave the band a unique sound.” Autumn Red fully embraces an old school sound, giving folk, country and blues a contemporary twist. Mississippi burning covers the lyrical content of the real-life murders of three civil rights workers in the U.S. state of Mississippi in 1964, the songs mood sweeps and changes over a chorus of dark banjos and slide guitars.
