The musicians who have come together to create “Closer to Red” include Dave Schulz (Goo Goo Dolls, Berlin), Durga Mc Broom (Pink Floyd), Fernando Perdomo (Dreaming in Stereo, guitar player for Jakob Dylan and countless others), and David Goodstein (Jackson Browne and Nil Lara).

Since the release of her first album "Masquerade" in February 2011, Jennifer has had college radio success throughout the US and has been a featured artist coast to coast at venues including Whiskey A GoGo in Hollywood CA, Tobacco Road in Miami, and the Culture Room in Ft Lauderdale where she opened for Soul Asylum in 2012. She has also performed at a number of charity events including fund raisers for the American Cancer Society and the Kristy House Women's Shelter.

In 1995 Jennifer crossed paths with Fernando Perdomo, her long time musical collaborator and co-producer while they were both students in the Miami Beach Senior High School Rock Ensemble led by Mr. C.D. Burris.

Aside from her musical talents, Jennifer is a visual artist working with mixed medium paints. Her artwork has been recognized by and purchased by several private collectors all over the USA, and some of her works have been featured in Collate, the international art magazine.

Dave Schulz
Dave Schulz
Music was a part of Dave Schulzs life from the beginning. Born in Buffalo, NY, his father wore two hats as pianist and conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. His father would seat him in the orchestra pit during performances as early as seven years old. His brother Robert would soon become a Grammy-nominated classical percussionist, and his sister an accomplished rock/soul singer. Shortly after his fathers passing when Dave was 10, he suddenly took an interest in the piano that was sitting idly in the living room. Osmosis? Within six months Dave had mastered the C Sonata by Mozart, and began an obsession with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and, of all things, DEVO. Not too bad for an 11 year old. He obviously made the right choice. By the age of 17, he was one of the top keyboardists in his hometown, winning multiple awards consistently for seven years. Finally the big break came, when Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls called and left a simple message from sunny LA: you wanna come out and tour with us for a year? In a matter of one day Dave went from playing in front of 300 in a local Buffalo bar to playing Woodstock in front of 60000. This led to a two-and-a-half year relationship with the Goo Goo Dolls that took Dave around the world twice as touring keyboardist/vocalist for the Dizzy Up The Girl tour, the landmark album that spawned five top ten singles between 98 and 2000. That experience sealed his fate. Where else do you get to open up for the Rolling Stones?

Since then Dave moved to Los Angeles, touring/performing/recording with a diverse array of artists running the musical spectrum: Goo Goo Dolls, Fuel, The Chambers Brothers, Jay-J, Sleepy Brown, English Beat, Bran Van 3000, General Public, Berlin, Ryan Cabrera, Bo Diddley, Daniel Morones, Jihad Jerry and the Evildoers (DEVO founder's solo project), Glenn Hughes, Justin Lanning, XYZ, Bernard Fowler, One Tribe Nation, Phil Upchurch, Meleni, Fastball, The Rembrandts, Carmen and Camille, Hilary Hawn, When In Rome, Mesner, Michael Mccarthy and the Beautiful Fools, DJ Eric Ill, Last Conservative, Mitch Perry, Warrant, Tenley, Maceo Parker, Derek Sholl, John Romano, Hilary Hawn, Kristine W., Rachel Stacey, Stacey Michelle, Fabienne Shine, Duke Graham, Daniel Morones, Derek Sholl, The Fizzies, Sonny Cool, Miranda Frigon, Hensley, Gary Scheider and Andre Foxxe (P-Funk), and Eric Sardinas.

Fern & Celli
Fern & Celli
Fern & Celli are a dynamic bicostal improvisation Duo. An uncommon chemistry between guitarist/producer Fernando Perdomo and cellist/producer Ruti Celli has lead to a spontaneous formation of the duo in February 2016. In their first recording session they said to have discovered each other as an undeniable musical match and magically gathered enough improvised material for an entire album of soul-stirring duets. The album was name "The Conversations" and was released a year later on Monday, February 6, 2017.

Fern & Celli have been getting a lot of buzz with the release of this new album full of songs that were chosen from hours of improvised acoustic guitar and cello duets between the two artists and will not be reproduced by them at live shows.

They recently were hand picked to open for world famous Jazz Fusionist composer and and violinist virtuoso Jean Luc Ponty at The Canyon Club in LA. This was an incredible opportunity for the duo to make a name for themselves after only a year and a half playing together. They also held performances at other LA venues such as The world famous Kulak's Woodshed and Genghis Cohen.
