Hailing from the coastal bushland of Northern NSW, Red Feather Road Teeter on the edge of Alt/folk and Acoustic/pop, drawing on guitar, percussion and hypnotic vocal harmonies to create their uniquely sweet yet haunting sound.

Red-feather-road-01-1200pxFeaturing Tara Luca on guitar/vocals/banjo and Alex O’Reilly on drums/percussion/vocals, the couple met in early 2003 while studying music at Southern Cross University and soon formed the band Luca with Moira Mckenzie (cello) and Jesse Moore  (mandolin).

In 2005 they released their debut EP Tales from the Tea Leaves through Vitamin Records, which was soon followed by numerous East Coast tours, festivals and national airplay.

Since then Tara has taken a break from live music to focus on raising their three little girls while Alex has gone on to teach and play nationally and internationally as a session drummer/percussionist.

This project see’s two seasoned musician’s returning to the original music scene after spending the past seven years living in the bush, raising children, homeschooling and building. The songs poetically reflect a life of spinning wool, toiling in the earth, singing babes to sleep and late nights spent watching the moon.

Your can see Red Feather Road this Sunday at the Sphinx Rock cafe.
