Red Giant Project could be called RnB and Blues pumped up on Bass music. Or just as easily labeled Americana, Neo-Soul Trap, or even Lofi-Trip-Hop-Downtempo. Ambient poetry, strong hooks and vocal synths dance through gritty, analog sound. Beauty is the intention.
The juxtaposition of vocalists Shane Hall (also on guitar) and Burkey combine for a human element, weaving tastefully throughout the music, never distracting from the full scope of the production.
Since the release of Red Giant Project’s debut album in 2020, they were featured on numerous Blogs, Podcasts, Radio shows and interviews. Outlets such as Upcoming 100, Hip Hop Weekly and even The Source magazine featured their music with feedback that makes us glow with appreciation.

The core of Matt Madonna and Burkey, work with an array of instrumentalists; Saxophone legend Karl Denson (KDTU, Greyboy Allstars, Rolling Stones) to Multi instrumentalist Tah Rei (Baritone & Soprano Sax, Flute, Xaphoon, Theremin, Bass Clarinet and Percussion) and John Avery (Tenor Sax) further compliment the sound.
Their debut record, self titled Red Giant Project, also features song writing from up and coming San Diego RnB/Hip Hop artist Tre Aces, on Betta Man, a Jazzy/Trap tune, with an incredible hip hop, singing vocal. Eyes of the Earth, written by veteran songstress, Americana bad-ass, Lynx Demouth also shows the unique breadth of the record.
It’s fresh, yet Mature. Live, yet premeditated. A true collection of different abilities, maximized within a vastly detailed sound design. Core composers and members of Red Giant Project are Matt Madonna who has previous success with his retired EDM project Love & Light and Matthew Burke, who is also known for his work as Vokab Kompany.
