Crimson Apple is an all-girl, pop-rock-alternative band based in Mililani, Hawaii. The band consists of four sisters - Colby Benson (Lead vocals/Keys/Guitar); Shelby Benson (Rhythm/Lead Guitar/Vocals); Carthi Benson (Bass); Faith Benson (Drums) and their good friend, Rachel Look (Lead Guitar/Vocals). The band was formed by Colby Benson after she competed on the popular TV show American Idol at the age of 15. She was one of approximately 300 out of over 120,000 contestants who made it to the famed “Hollywood Week!” The band was originally named “The Colby Benson Band” but in August 2012, the band went through a makeover when Colby added her two younger sisters—and the band name was changed to Crimson Apple. Crimson Apple has performed all over the islands for shows such as the Hard Rock Café, 50th State Fair, Mililani Eat the Street, Keiki PACT (Parents and Children Together) day, 18th Annual Children and Youth Day Event, Kaimuki Kanikapila Street Festival, Hand for Japan fundraiser, Mililani Town Center, as well as the Kauai Music Festival. The group features a wide variety of pop, rock, alternative, country, and original compositions.
