Burnside Album Details
Red Button, The, She's About To Cross My Mind
The Red Button is made up of Los Angeles-based singer-songwriters Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg. Ruekberg’s indie credentials are rock solid as writer and singer for an beloved Minneapolis-based pop-rockers Rex Daisyand wrote the soundtrack for an underachieving but beloved indie film (Dummy, starring Adrien Brody). Swirsky's legitimate music credentials are impressive: He's written hit songs for dozens of artists, ranging from Al Green to Tina Turner to Taylor Dayne. (He's also written three hugely successful books about baseball!) The two met in 2004, when Seth was recording his first solo album, Instant Pleasure (which went on to win Best Pop Album at the 2005 Los Angeles Music Awards). They shared one passion above all: A love of concise, melodic pop songs. She’s About to Cross My Mind is the result of that meeting: eleven pop songs created, says Goldmine Magazine, “the way God and Paul McCartney must have intended”. Amplifier Magazine and International Pop Overthrow Music Festival founder David Bash says “Swirsky and Ruekberg can now wear their rightful crown as the Peter Holsapple/Chris Stamey of the New Millennium”.
