Atlanta, Georgia is a city known mostly for breaking hip hop and R&B, but don't tell that to Red Letter Agent. It seems that these guys just might be single handedly putting the city back on the rock & roll map. This Atlanta-based quartet has been steadily building a solid buzz on the local music scene for a couple of years and sharing the stage with nationally touring acts like The Thrills, Butch Walker, and The Stills, to name a few. Now ready to conquer the world, Red Letter Agent are making all the right moves. The title track from their new Burn The Good Ones Down EP is a hit in Atlanta, recently becoming a top 5 call-out on 99X for four straight weeks. That fact has landed them a spot on the 99X main stage at the city's annual summer bash, Music Midtown, alongside The White Stripes and Interpol. Not too shabby for an unsigned band, eh? As you can see, things are quickly moving forward for Red Letter Agent, and with good reason. Their six-song EP pops with spacious, luscious guitars, intelligent lyrics and the infectious vocals of James Templeton. Able to go from soaring, Bono-esque, stadium sized vocal explosions to soft, quiet whispers at the flick of a switch, Templeton leaves no doubt that he's more than capable of taking this band to the next level. If you haven't already, go get yourself a copy of this EP and get acclimated to Red Letter Agent. You'll be hearing a lot more from them in the years to come.
