You can hear a small sample of our original material on our website at Reverb Nation. These songs are presented raw and were self recorded. Some of these include "She'll Get By" - Ken Taylor ; "Sandstone Creek" - Tim Murphy & Derek Escher ; "Night Train" - Tim Murphy ; "Green Flash" - Derek Escher ; "Old Familiar Devil" - Ken Taylor. Another selection titled "Saltwhistle Bay" (Derek Escher) has received air time on WMVY radio.



Derek Escher and Tim Murphy 'found' each other through the sailing community, and began playing coffee houses and small venues as a duo. Some time later they were joined by Ken Taylor on bass, and thus the nucleus of Red Eye Flight was formed. Rand Torman joined the band a few years later and with the addition of percussion, the sound evolved from a quiet and pretty acoustic flavor into more of a gritty, earthy Americana style, with influences from Wilco, Drive By Truckers, Dave Alvin and more. With the addition of Kelly Cleveland (vocals, keys) the band has been able to bring in even more influences such as Lindi Ortega, Lucinda Williams, Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welsh. Our music is saturated with 3, 4 and 5 part harmonies. We play Americana covers and often tweak the music to give the songs our own Red Eye Flight twist. We have a growing stable of original songs and our first CD is being finalized and is scheduled for release in April.
