Vikki Thorn and the Redtails 

While the Waifs (and the rest of the world) were put out of action, Vikki Thorn found solace and kinship in singing harmonies in the forest on the south coast of WA.

After spending four ‘Covid months’ hunkered down in a beach shack, Vikki (aka @Thornbirdmusic) came out of iso with a handful of new songs and new collaboration. She met the neighbours and they formed a new vocal trio – ‘Vikki Thorn and The Red Tails’; their music proving that good things can come from trying times.

Overlooking the bay that has shaped her own song writing and much of the Waifs music, Vikki and her neighbours through the bush, Simon & Tammy London - (aka The Red Tails) found solace in getting together to sing and trade songs on the back porch. Their blend of powerful voices create big soul harmonies, over songs deeply rooted in WA history and stories.

The song writing was a natural progression in light of the kinship between each artist and the times they found themselves in. Tammy grew up on a local farm before she met Simon at a gig in the local pub. Simon and Vikki knew each other as kids from the fishing camp and both ended up touring extensively through North America in the 90’s. Vikki with the Waifs and Simon fronting The Spirits.

After completing a 12-track recording, Vikki Thorn & The Red Tails have decided to step off the front porch and into a venue near you. Vikki will be performing songs from her forthcoming solo album and will joined by The Red Tails to sing their lockdown tunes. They will also be joined onstage by Ben Franz on the bass and pedal steel.
