"There is no denying the talent that overflows as soon as Redleg Husky hits the stage." -High Country Press
Redleg Husky is a country, bluegrass, and blues duo based in Asheville, North Carolina. Since its inception in 2012, the band has been performing its unique blend of American music in barrooms, theaters, and festivals throughout the Southeast and beyond. The group has released three recordings of original music in that time, a self-titled EP in 2013, its full-length debut, Carolina, in 2014, and a second LP, My Old Heart, in 2016.
Throughout its time together, the band has been garnering rave reviews, leading to features on Alternate Root Magazine's “5 Flying Under the Radar,” WNCW's “Local Color,” and in Asheville's Mountain Xpress, as well as opening performances for national acts such as The Tillers and Kim Lenz and the Jaguars.
Redleg Husky features Tim McWilliams on acoustic guitar, banjo, and vocals, and Son the Bassman on bass and vocals. The band has previously included co-founder and songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Misa Giroux, between 2012 and 2016, and vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist David Funderburk from 2012 to 2014.
With more than five hundred shows already under their belt, Tim and Son are excited to continue their musical evolution, developing new takes on classic songs, bringing an impassioned live show to audiences throughout the region, and pushing musical boundaries within the many sub-genres of Americana.
“...The group consistently delivers folk rock songs that easily cover the themes of love, heartbreak, faith and enjoying the slower life. All in all, Carolina is a pleasure to listen to, and effortlessly transports the listener to a thriving, rural part of America.” -Claudia Morello, The Aquarian
“Carolina is an album of exceptional beauty... It's more like a painting from the Hudson River School: thoughtfully composed, but earthy and a little messy. It's honest, restrained in the right places, and joyfully exuberant everywhere else.” -Rachel Cholst, Adobe and Teardrops
