Red House Records Signs Hot Tuna!

ST. PAUL, MN -- Red House Records is very pleased to announce that they have signed iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna to the label. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady formed Hot Tuna in 1969, when taking a break from touring with Jefferson Airplane. Since then the band has been performing their unique mix of acoustic and electric blues, cultivating an extreme fan following. In addition to Jorma and Jack, the band includes mandolin virtuoso Barry Mitterhoff and legendary drummer Skoota Warner. Hot Tuna just wrapped up a tour with Steve Earle and is going into Levon Helm's studio now to record their first studio album of new material in 20 years. Hot Tuna's album is scheduled to be released in early 2011 on Red House.

Founding member Jorma Kaukonen has released two solo albums with Red House and is looking forward to releasing a Hot Tuna album with the Grammy winning indie label. "We are so excited about signing with Red House Records and joining their fine roster of artists," he says. "The label promotes true freedom of expression."

Well, that answers my question about the rumor of the new album.... Congratulations Ellen and congratulations Red House! The first studio album since Pair-a-Dice Found; how exciting! And, of course, hooray for Hot Tuna for finding such a great label. Jorma did his most recent solo albums, Stars in My Crown and River of Time, for Red House, and I can't think of a better home for Tuna. Looking forward to hear what studio Tuna tastes like again.
