I've got no destination, don't know when I'll be back:

Do you like folk music, plaid, and/or beards?

If you've answered yes to any of the aforementioned things, then I've got the band for you. If you didn't answer yes to any of these...well, I'm still real confident that I've got the band for you...

Western North Carolina band Redleg Husky is a breath of fresh air for when I need a break from all of my heavier rock tunes and I'm looking for something different - something special. These Americana folk tunes are filled with really cool instrumentation that's not often seen in these parts, as they're unique to the Appalachia area. C'mon, how often do you see a saw in use in general, let alone for music purposes? I mean, what's more intriguing these days than unconventional instruments? Hearing a lot of buzz from the music community of, "let's hear something we haven't heard before," or the idea of always finding what's next first - start here, with Redleg Husky. With their first EP, and first release, available for free download on their bandcamp, there's really nothing holding you back from giving these musicians a little bit of your time to check them out. It'll be time well spent! Combining the eclectic musical backgrounds of Misa Giroux, Tim McWilliams, and David Funderburk, Redleg Husky is sure to have a spark of something you've already been listening to within the layers of these songs. Plus, we all need some boot stompin' tunes in our lives - you can't deny that.

Coming off releasing their first EP, the Husky folk have their eyes set on what's next, and for them it's coming to you to ask for help to get into to the studio to record their first full length album. They've been playing shows in North Carolina constantly and along with their impressive cover songs, they've been working on writing new songs to keep their sets constantly changing and always exciting! Please consider helping them out at their indiegogo page (click there!), and be sure to watch the video! It may be one of the best campaign videos I've seen in a long time, but I may be biased...since there's a dog in the video. Go see for yourself!

Good luck to Redleg Husky and their endeavors!
