Biography

Comprised of Naomi, Sarah, Lesley and Binkie, Electrik Red hails from both New York City and Canada. Binkie and Lesley, who attended NYC’s prestigious Laguardia School of Performing Arts, met the Toronto born Naomi and Sarah while individually performing as back-up dancers for artists like Usher, Mariah Carey and Ciara. After running into each other time and again at auditions and parties, the girls began to form a friendship. “We’d get together on our off time, and strategize,” says Naomi. “For some of us the ultimate was getting to work with an amazing performer, like a Janet Jackson or Madonna,” explains Binkie. “But once you hit that mark it’s like ok, now where do I want to take it? In our case, making music was the next plateau to aim for.”

Although the move to step to the front of the stage may have seemed risky, the girls knew they were ready. “Everyone had lucrative careers,” says Lesley, “but we had the confidence to say. Ok, let’s stop all that and go off on our own with no help from anyone we’d worked for.”

While their individual careers started with dance, the girls all grew up studying music. Binkie the business early from her father who was a member in the legendary Caribbean soul group Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Lesley began vocal training at age three while Sarah studied the piano as a young girl. Once they decided to form a group, the girls decided on the name Electrik Red which they felt exuded their collective sensuality.

    i had no idea they were still under a label. they're still on def jam (or supposedly) and have still be working on "how to be a lady pt.2" this whole time. they do have a pretty big list of leaked tracks over the years, glad they aren't completely gone i guess.
