Louisville, Kentucky-based band, Southern Solstice was formed in November 2011 and has played locally at Phoenix Hill Tavern, Wicks Pizza and Billiards Club along with unofficially on the streets of downtown Louisville. Although they’ve displayed some serious success and found many fans to follow their shows, they’ve recently decided to follow their passion and spread their music outside the city limits. Their extreme passion for music is what allows them to pack up and go for it; their willingness to spread what they do for others to hear is their motivation for their unique sound and touching lyrics. Their sound incorporates many elements of the music from the alternative-rock genre while remaining completely original. Both poetic and down to earth, Southern Solstice has a knack for writing lyrics that will capture you on a deeper level than what you hear with most alternative-rock bands. You can hear many of their influences in their sound/lyric combination including Ray Lamontagne, Jason Mraz, Alice in Chains, Staind, Breaking Benjamin, Pink Floyd, Damien Rice, Mason Jennings, Jamie Cullum and Stone Temple Pilots, just to name a few. This is captivating music written and performed by real, down to earth musicians who care about sharing the soul and freedom of expression. Just listen.
