Our Story

Framing The Red is a Southern Rock n Roll band that is taking the national music scene by storm. They are not trying to get their foot in the door of opportunity, they are knocking it down. For a band that has only been together and touring for a little over 7 years, each and every member has the talent and can put on a show that any onlooker would think this was a seasoned band that has been touring for years. Framing The Red promises to deliver a show like none other, grabbing their audiences and bringing everyone to their feet with catchy riffs, great lyrics, and high impact live stage show that people will continue to talk about!

In 2010, Framing The Red started  straight out of the heart of the southern United States. During the first year and a half the band went through lineup changes, recorded their first E.P., and began touring the nation hoping to make Framing The Red a household name! The bands first single “A.O.” gained mass popularity across the south beginning with a local station (Rock 93.7) out of Lafayette, La spinning the single on a constant rotation. After the release of their self titled E.P., which produced 2 radio singles “A.O” and “Lay Down Beside Me” the band set back and began writing what would become their freshman album “Welcome To The Show”.


In August of 2012, Framing The Red released their debut album "Welcome To The Show" producing three radio singles off the freshman album, along with a video release of the third single "Country Band Man".

In May of 2016, Framing The Red released their second record “Love, Lies, & Alibis” producing the hit singles “Whiskey & Weed”, CrossRoads, & “American Made”

2017 brought about the single "Mississippi Hippie" & “CrossRoads” which has a video directed by music video extraordinaire, J.B. Lawrence.  The video can currently be found on YouTube as well as on this webpage.

The past few years have brought about even more changes. Jordan has added an All-Star lineup of some of Mississippi’s finest musicians with the addition of Cody (Cleverform) on guitars, Chris (Southern Bastard Church, Lobotomy and Lillian Axe) on bass and Caleb on drums. Framing The Red has recently been signed to Old Trace Records/Malaco Music Group and will have a new album coming out in 2018.

Framing The Red has had the privilege of sharing the stage with such bands as Motley Crue, Sevendust, Black Stone Cherry, Cavo, Rains, Alien Ant Farm, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Hurt, Smile Empty Soul, Lynam, 10 Years, Saving Abel, Black Oak Arkansas and festivals such as Rocklahoma and Sturgis just to name a few! Framing The Red is the next “big thing”, this band embraces Rock ’N Roll at its finest and is a firm truth that Rock ‘N Roll is not dead…
