Left on Red is comprised of Liah Alonso (vocals, guitar, songwriting) and Kelly Halloran (violin, vocals). The two have been making music together as a duo since 2009, getting their start and making rent serenading passerbys in New York City's subways and Central Park and local restaurants and venues across the city. Not long after forming the official band, they began writing and recording an arsenal of revolutionary thematic songs such as "High Heel Blues", a female empowerment anthem, "Jack and Jill" about the pressures put on women and gender roles in society, and "Shop" a commentary on America's addiction to retail. Left on Red also has written songs supporting war Veterans and often played for Veterans events in the earlier years of their career together as well as volunteering in hospitals, HIV clinics, and a battered women's shelter. Their work with Veterans Against War + Veterans for Peace led to live collaborations and a long-lasting friendship with legendary guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine + Audioslave. In 2012, Morello invited them to perform Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" with him along with the great Jackson Browne at the Newport Folk Festival. Left on Red went on to tour nationally and internationally and now, after a brief hiatus, will be joining back together Summer 2022 to perform at Rochester NY's Corn Hill Arts Festival.
