Red Sky July are husband and wife Ally McErlaine (of multi-million selling band Texas) and Shelly Poole (one half of million-selling duo Aisha’s Attic), along with former model and member of The Alice Band & The Ailerons, Charity Hair. Having released their 2009 self-titled debut album – which received rave reviews from Q Magazine, the Evening Standard and the Daily Telegraph – ‘Shadowbirds’ showcases even more lush harmonies, melodic brilliance, carefully crafted songs and an Americana-inflected alt-country twang.



In addition to their own previous headline national tours, support slots with the likes of Deacon Blue, James Walsh (Starsailor) preceded them joining Jools Holland as special guests on his UK summer tour and his sold out performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Most recently the band toured with renowned Nashville singer/songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman on her UK tour, both opening for her and performing as her band.  Red Sky July also performed at the Scottish Music Awards where they were presented with a prestigious Tartan Clef award by Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy; don’t miss out on seeing them at a venue near you.


“We’re very excited to get out on the road again and sing these songs to our fans. Singing live is what we love most!” – Charity Hair
