Bernie Maguire - Songwriter / Lead Vocals
Mike Seal - Songwriter / Guitars / Bass
Maighread Hegarty - Backing Vocals
Gabriella Gamesi - Violin / Viola

At the core of the band lies the wonderful, eclectic songwriting of Bernie Maguire and Mike Seal. Their beautiful acoustic duo sound has recently been expanded and developed by the wonderful addition of newest band members: Maighread (a skilled Vocal Coach) and Gabriella (Classically trained Viola and Violin player).

Having met just over two and a half years ago, through a musicians' website, Bernie and Mike rapidly developed into a prolific, unique and exciting songwriting team. Their performances have received enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics alike, and in late 2011, they headed over to Canada to record the tracks for their first album.

The newly formed four piece is taking Red Bird Sky's sound to a whole new level and sets an evening alight with songs that leave images and playing in your mind long after the music has ended.

The quality of Bernie and Mike's songwriting has been evident from their very first collaboration, "Kicking The Habit Of You", a song dealing insightfully with the thorny issue of obsessive love. As they continue to grow and develop together it is clear that they are creating songs of great depth and beauty. Bernie's sweet, yet mature voice, melodic instincts and searching lyrics combine with Mike's wonderful, virtuoso guitar playing, elevating their songs to a truly special place.
