Blue Hills

Red Dirt Radio

An Australian Americana duo with a sound existing somewhere between roots infused folk and pop-driven bluegrass.

This trans-Tasman duo formed in NZ in 2016 after singer song-writer Sascha Ion jumped the ditch and formed a collaboration with Expat Wayne Rowlands.

Red Dirt Radio’s signature sound combines Sascha’s unique songwriting style on baritone guitar with Wayne on mandolin/bass and featured Ali Osborne on percussion in their original line-up.

Red Dirt Radio deliver an upbeat and playful retrospective reinvention of all that we hold dear. Their self-titled EP, recorded at the Armoury with Troy Kelly in 2018 is now available on Spotify and iTunes.
