With a blend of dreamy acoustic duets, bluesy murder ballads & foot-stomping Folk, New Zealand-born and Nashville-based South for Winter sound is as eclectic as their origins. The band is composed of New Zealander Nick Stone, Colorado native Dani Cichon, and Michigander Alex Stradal, and together the three multi-instrumentalists and songwriters combine elements such as cello, guitar, mandolin, and three-part harmonies into a genre-bending sound described by American Songwriter as “impeccable”. After recording their debut album Luxumbra with GRAMMY award-winning producer Matt Leigh in Nashville and successfully crowdfunding its independent release in 2020, the trio began making a name for themselves with head-turning live performances, storytelling lyrics, and complex instrumentation. South for Winter have been chosen as a 2023 Official Artist at South by Southwest, 2022 Official Showcase Artist at Folk Alliance International, 2021 DJ Pick by NYC's John Platt of WFUV, winner of the 2019 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival "Emerging Artist" showcase, and 2019 DJ Pick by Nashville's Lightning 100 Radio. Between touring throughout the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, the trio is back in the studio with Matt Leigh for their sophomore album with the first single coming in Spring 2023.
