"Rarely have I heard a cover of one of our songs where I'm like they have taken it apart and reassembled it in a brand new way. This band from New Zealand called Late 80's Mercedes did that with 'This Aint a Scene'. Kinda sounds swing/big band. I really like it." PETE WENTZ - FALLOUT BOY
Redmore started making an impact in New Zealand's music scene in 2006 after joining New Zealand rock band Midnight Youth. Their platinum-selling debut album The Brave Don't Run peaked at number 2 in the RIANZ New Zealand Album Chart and included two top 20, gold-selling singles, All On Our Own and "The Letter (Midnight Youth song)". The band won the Best Rock Album award, Best Group award and Best Engineer award at the 2009 New Zealand Music Awards as well as a Silver Scroll for the most-played song of 2009. In 2011 they released their second album World Comes Calling before Redmore quit the band to pursue a solo career in late 2012.
Redmore released his largely self-produced debut solo album, Clouds Are Alive, in July 2014 which reached number six on the Official New Zealand Music Chart and spawned hit single "Bad Philosophy". At the end of April 2014, Redmore opened for Ed Sheeran at his iHeartRadio showcase at Auckland's ASB Theatre. The third single from the record, "One Day Alone", was released with a music video created by six different directors from across the world. Redmore has performed at a number of New Zealand celebrity weddings including those of Mike Hosking, Dane Rumble and Angela Dotchin. Redmore has also featured on two tracks for hip hop artist PNC - Fame Kills All and Lit / Slow Down.

I see an age where generosity can be the most common social exchange. Where Community can be built upon honour. Where gifts are recognized. Where fear of others is abandoned and waves of freedom wash our people, our land. Where contribution isn't measured in dollar value. Where the inner self of every soul is showcased with such simplicity that we forget what is is to put on a mask or hide a gun under the belt.
Are melodies and brush strokes, conversations and gestures, too small a contribution? No. That is like asking if the sky adds anything to the appearance of each day. Each component composes the whole.
Music is my brush stroke in the sky, my single note amidst a grand composition.
