The Dark Red Seed

The Dark Red Seed
The Dark Red Seed is the musical outlet of Tosten Larson, guitarist for Seattle dark folk musician King Dude. A self-coined "metaphor for the heart", The Dark Red Seed represents a direct reference to life - and death - itself. The duo, which also includes Shawn Fleming who along with Larson has previously worked with King Dude during the recording sessions of "Songs of Flesh & Blood - In The Key of Light", has signed with Prophecy Productions and will release its debut EP, "The Dark Red Seed Stands with Death", this summer.

Raised in Kalispell, Montana and currently based in Portland, Oregon, Tosten Larson began his classical instruction as a young boy sitting at his grandmother's piano. Firmly rooted in the traditions of American music, Larson's sound is equally shaped by art rock such as Swans and Six Organs of Admittance, Eastern masters like Kayan Kalhor and Ravi Shankar, and hard rock staples such as Led Zeppelin and Neil Young. Though he wears his influences on his sleeve, his music attempts to defy category and carve its own path.
