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. The finishing touches are nearly done on their debut EP recorded at the Armoury with Troy Kelly and is due for release in mid 2018.

Meanwhile check out their single Valves, Vinyl and Rusty Gold now available on Spotify and iTunes.
