Red Tail Hawk's music is a vibrant fusion of alternative, indie rock and pop. They capture audiences with soaring melodies, heady grooves and high-energy performances that have earned them distinction on Boston’s north shore. Frontman Ben Zanfagna is a fluent vocalist & sax player whose songwriting and arrangements have been inspired by raw experience, blues, jazz and soul but are never bounded by conventional norms.
RTH has opened for National acts such as G-Love, The Brew and Chris Duarte, to name a few. They've played major music festival in the region and sold-out shows at The Stone Church in Newmarket, NH and The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH.
Following the release of Red Tail Hawk's self-titled EP (2011) and their late-2014 release, "Magnetic Malaise" their late-2015 single releases, "Zoo" and "Blot" the band has a full-length album, "Night Soup" ready to be released 10th of June, 2016.
