Press Release

Jackson Reed & The Silverbirds proudly announce their latest endeavor, a homage to the timeless classic from the Prince songbook, “Little Red Corvette,” following the resounding success of their 2023 hit, “In My Head.”

Since the release of “In My Head,” the ensemble, comprising Jackson Reed, Nathan Litvinchuk on drums, Jeremy Brigham on keyboards, and backing vocalist Deandre Crowe, has experienced an upward trajectory marked by notable collaborations and engagements. Their musical journey has intertwined with luminaries such as Andy Summers, Dweezil Zappa, Kenny Aronoff and Billy Joel’s Chuck Burgi, culminating in podcast appearances and collaborative projects. Notably, “In My Head” soared in popularity, securing prominent placements on iTunes charts, garnering radio airplay in Toronto and Los Angeles, and securing a coveted spot on a Spotify editorial playlist.

Inspiration struck Reed and the Silverbirds as they revisited the iconic “Little Red Corvette” late last year, recognizing its enduring relevance and unparalleled craftsmanship despite its 1982 origins. Driven by their profound admiration for the original composition, the ensemble embarked on a meticulous reinterpretation, seamlessly blending reverence with innovation.

“The inspiration came late last year when I was listening to the original version of the song,” Reed shares. “Despite the fact it came out in 1982, in that moment it dawned on me how fresh the song is. It might be one of the finest pop songs ever written.” Alongside the Silverbirds, Reed’s passion and respect for “Little Red Corvette” permeate their rendition, striking a delicate balance between honoring the raw essence of the original and infusing it with contemporary instrumentation and pristine sonic clarity.

Every aspect of the reinterpretation underwent careful scrutiny and refinement. From the reimagined synth pads, evoking the original’s emotive resonance while exuding a newfound vitality, to Reed’s vocal delivery, paying homage to Prince’s indelible performance while infusing it with his own artistic flair, each element reflects the ensemble’s unwavering commitment to excellence.

The resulting rendition of “Little Red Corvette” stands as a testament to Jackson Reed & The Silverbirds’ unwavering dedication to their craft, seamlessly blending the timeless allure of the original with a contemporary sonic palette, all while upholding the highest standards of professionalism and musical integrity.
