Redd Rios, born in Oakland, California is a hip-hop recording artist/producer and aspiring voice actor. Redd's affinity for horror can be traced back to his childhood as an avid reader of books such as Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and his regular viewing of television programs including Tales from the Crypt, and Are you Afraid of the Dark?. After years of recording music, honing his skill, and becoming more comfortable with the microphone, Redd naturally began to develop an interest in voice acting. That interest continued to grow with the discovery of various horror narration channels and podcasts including Chilling Tales for Dark Nights. Redd takes inspiration from the likes of the T.C. Carson, Mark Hamill, Jonathon Jones, and the late James Avery.
