The Redhill Valleys

The Redhill Valleys are an original three-piece folk rock group from Hamilton, Ontario. Rooted by their influences in southern rock, acoustic Americana and soul, the newly formed trio are forging a musical path all their own. The collaboration of guitarist Danielle Beaudin, bassist Chelsea McWilliams and drummer/guitarist Tim Allard is built upon a common dedication to the craft of songwriting, unifying the poetic ease of their lyrics with unforgettable melodies, harmonies and guitar riffs. 

The path to now began when McWilliams and Beaudin hit the open road for Nashville, Tennessee. They collaborated on their newly developed material and it wasn't long before the pair found their rhythm.  Allard joined shortly after their return from the Music City, and it became undeniable that something unique was under way as their individual sounds came together as one. They didn’t know it yet, but this was the beginning of The Redhill Valleys.

The trio dug their heels in over the following year, polishing their live material and playing the local circuit. Songs worthy of a full-length album were quickly coming to life, and a curious hum among the Hamilton music scene was building around their folk, roots, and rock inspired sound. Their collaborative influences brought catchy country choruses, as heard on their new single titled "Wrong Way Turns Out Right”, a Canadiana inspired folk ballad called  “Parry Sound”, and unapologetic toe-tappin' rock via tunes such as “You Can’t Be Alone” and “Ragged and Run Down”. Their set-list crossed genres and touched on the hearts of true music lovers. 

After a successful fundraiser, the group was able to raise money to begin the recording process. Their debut album was recorded at Hamilton’s Westmoreland Recording Studios with producer Carl Jennings. The 12 tracks feature McWilliams, Beaudin and Allard trading off lead vocals, which leads the listener on a multifaceted and deeply rich journey. In the studio, the trio honed in on their respected and multi-instrumental abilities to fine tune and translate the energy of their live performances into the record. With the help of producer Jennings, their sound became distinct and the songs unforgettable.

On Sept 4, 2017, The Redhill Valleys perform alongside James Barker Band, The Reklaws, The Pistolettes and Melissa Marchese as part of a free Supercrawl-presented showcase concert that kicks off at approximately 2:30pm in the South Plaza of Tim Hortons Field (64 Melrose Ave., Hamilton).
