Originally called "On The Ropes", founding members Gary Yates and Adrian
played their first five gigs with five different lineups before eventually
splitting in 2009.
This left three members: Gary, Ade and lead vocalist Paige Yates. At this
point, the trio
decided a change was needed and The Red Shift was born.
Taking a fresh approach and focusing on original songs + more unusual
covers such as Kate Bush
and the Dixie Chicks, The Red Shift released their first single "TIME
TRAVELLING" in 2010.
In 2011, the line up changed once again with the addition of Emma Stone on
and backing vocals. Emma then featured on the 2012 EP "WINTER" and single
This version of the Red Shift continued until 2013 and the arrival of
Colin Guest on bass guitar
leaving the line up as follows:
Gary Yates - Guitar and vocals
Adrian Harper - Accordion
Paige Yates - Vocals
Emma Stone - Saxophone, flute and vocals
Colin Guest - Bass
And remained like this for the next four years until...
Following the recording of their four track EP in 2017, Emma sadly left
the band and a decision
was made to change the name of the band. The EP was release with the
current band name,
Paige and the Red Shift.
Finally, the band were joined by percussionist Tom Barker in 2018 and the
current lineup was established.
