Santa Rosa Beach Florida
Helen “Redd” Vizard’s new CD - Discovered… At Last – is gaining respect and acclaim, even though distribution is not yet widespread. The new CD released September 19th , and although the title song “At Last” is getting rave reviews, it is the versions of “Funny Valentine” and “Stars and the Moon” that are attracting the most attention. Redd is backed up by the Guffman Trio from Pensacola, and is expecting to fill out next years event calendar with the complete ensemble performing together.
Redd relocated to Santa Rosa Beach from Key West in early 2007 with husband Paul, a former resident of Dune Allen Beach. Redd was a popular Key West attraction, and was also Queen of Fantasy Fest in 2005.
“The Emerald Coast has such a great local music talent said Redd, I am delighted with the end result. The interesting mix of these musicians came together with the vocals so well. I am glad others are enjoying it as much as we did when making it.”

Redd says, “Key West is known for closing the streets for open air concerts, like when I performed for tens of thousands in Duval St during New Years Eve - we even made CNN Anderson Cooper. I sang at many events there, at the Waterfront Theater, Tennessee Williams Theater and about every venue with live entertainment.
Now I hope to be able to perform at some of the great outdoor 30a venues such as Gulf Place, Redfish Village, and Seaside. The Cd release party was at Seacrest Pool and amphitheatre, that was a fantastic venue too”
