Red Sky July are an alternative country band, founded in 2009 by Texas guitarist Ally McErlaine; his wife Shelly Poole, a former member of Alisha's Attic; and Charity Hair, formerly of The Alice Band. The band release their debut self titled album via Proper Records on the 18th October.
The songs on the debut album range from otherworldly modern folk to bluegrass stompalongs always informed by a wonderful pop sensibility. Shelly and Charity’s perfect two part harmonies throughout, combined with Ally’s elaborate, atmospheric guitar playing, make for something really rather special. The album is a true labour of love for three individual players that came together to make a dream, and they did.
