Los Angeles' Little Red Lung began in 2007 as a solo project of singer/keyboardist Zoe-Ruth Erwin, and was immediately seeded as a dramatic, dynamic and genre-defying musical exhibition, performing in small avant-indie venues across the city. In the Fall of 2010, after an extended sabbatical to the foothills of East Tennessee, Zoe returned to L.A, and quickly enlisted three creative veterans of the local indie music scene: Ali Nikou (guitar), Rob Hume (bass), and John Broeckel (drums). With the inspired new lineup, Little Red Lung got right to work, and, in 2012, their eagerly anticipated, 6-song, self-titled debut was released.
Within a month of introducing the album, Little Red Lung had graced the cover of Indie Music Reviewer Magazine, had the highest rated new album in April's issue of Music Connection Magazine, and were nominated for LA Artist of the Month by The Deli Magazine. Two months later, they completed a successful western U.S. tour, and premiered a hauntingly beautiful, visually spectacular, music video for EP's stunning album cover art. Most recently, a District 78 remix of their song "Fangs" was featured in the finale of FOX's hit show "So You Think You Can Dance," and subsequently placed them in the top 25 on the iTunes download charts. To follow up, in the Fall of 2012, they embarked on a cross-country U.S. tour, focussed on a triumphant homecoming to Zoe's old stomping ground in the southeast. Upon their return, The Deli Magazine honored them again, this time as Emerging Artist of the Year. Little Red Lung are currently in pre-production on their first full-length album.
