The Rizdales / Bio

FOUR TIME WINNER OF THE JACK RICHARDSON MUSIC AWARD FOR COUNTRY/BLUEGRASS

RIZDALES REVIEWED:
" The Rizdales have always been a favorite of mine since the first time they came to Austin and sat in with me and my band at Ginny's Little Longhorn. I know they'll become a favorite of yours too." - DALE WATSON, Austin, Texas

"a cheatin’ country classic" - NOW MAGAZINE, Toronto, Ontario

"My favourite band" - CAROLYN MARK, Victoria, BC

"The Rizdales score a goal with top-notch songs of heartache and hope all to a background of well delivered honky-tonk music as smooth as Crown Royal!" – BRIAN HOFELDT, THE DERAILERS, Austin, Texas

" The quintet features the killer harmonies of the husband-wife team of Tara and Tom Dunphy, who naturally deliver catchy duets like “Here I Go” and “High Heeled Homewrecker,” a couple of great new tunes that continue mapping out the territory of the honky-tonk heart." - ARTVOICE, Buffalo, New York

” Instant jukebox classics like “Baby Isn’t Mine” and “I Could Tell You Lies” ensure that Radio Country is a must-have for country music fans." - EXCLAIM MAGAZINE, Toronto, Ontario

"Highly Recommended" – HONKY TONKIN' MUSIC, Telephone, Texas

"Comparisons to Patsy Cline and Hank Williams are well deserved, but the Rizdales manage to infuse their honky-tonk sound with an infectious energy that's fresh, modern and fun. The album has a definite old-school feel, but in this case nostalgia is a good thing" - ARTSCAPE, London, Ontario

"Husband/wife duo Tom and Tara Dunphy pen poisoned valentines to each other with subtle wit and the kind of rich character writing that the genre has always excelled at." - KITCHENER-WATERLOO RECORD, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario
