Tara and Tom Dunphy of the Rizdales are a happily married couple, really they are, but you’d never know it from the heartbreaking stories of addiction, infidelity, loss, and longing they’ve penned for their latest release, Radio Country.

Formed in London,based in Toronto, Ontario, the Rizdales have been performing their highly infectious brand of roots rock infused country to enthusiastic crowds since early 2003. Their latest release shows us why the folks keep coming back for more. On Radio Country, available Oct. 22, 2007, the band once again takes us on a wondrous journey from barroom to bedroom to courtroom. How is it that these musical snapshots of relationships gone bad can make us feel so damn good?

Haven’t yet heard the Rizdales? Sounds kinda like Elvis Costello and Patsy Cline fronting the Buckaroos with Nick Lowe at the board. As vocalists go, Tom and Tara’s voices couldn’t be any less alike, each one unique and conveying such brutal honesty, as though they’ve lived each and every line of the sad songs they sing. Together, their voices meld to create the beautiful and distinct harmonies that truly define the Rizdales sound.

On Radio Country you’ll also hear Tom on guitar and Tara on fiddle, along with fellow band members Rob Clarke on bass, Mark Duff on drums and Brad ‘Shyboy’ Keogan on electric guitar.

On this outing, the band invited pals Jerry Fletcher (pedal steel guitar) and Michael ‘Slipnote’ Bonnell (piano, accordion) along to join in on the fun.
