Meet Liah Alonso and Kelly Halloran, collectively known as Left on Red. Left on Red features Liah on guitar and lead vocals and Kelly on violin, guitar, vocals and drums. Left on Red simply means to take your own direction. This dynamic duo is edgy and entertaining, using their spirited songs and harmonies to inspire positive social and environmental changes in the world.
Left on Red’s story began when Liah and Kelly decided to make their living exclusively through busking in the New York Subways. Now after 3 years, they have written and recorded 2 EPs, been played on over 150 non-commercial and college radio stations, and wowed audiences of all ages and musical tastes with their unique brand of original songs with catchy melodic hooks and intelligent, often humorous yet socially relevant lyrics and passionate improvisational instrumentation.
In addition to busking, Left on Red performs in clubs and festivals across the US, Canada, France and Spain. Left on Red also takes their music directly to people who otherwise are unable to enjoy live music by performing at the bedsides of patients in hospitals and nursing homes through Musicians On Call and also for domestic violence survivors at YWCA Shelters. Left on Red also performs for war veterans including on shared bills with Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Street Sweeper Social Club) and his organization Axis of Justice.
