South for Winter South for Winter
When New Zealander Nick Stone and Coloradan Dani Cichon met as volunteers building greenhouses in South America, they never expected a lighthearted rooftop jam to evolve into an internationally-touring Americana band described by American Songwriter as "laden with delicate harmonies, intricate guitar-work and earthy vocals...impeccable sound". Years after meeting, the two musicians settled together in Christchurch, NZ and forged what is now South for Winter's characteristic blend of dark, bluesy murder ballads and dreamy, harmony-filled duets. After moving the project to Nashville TN in 2017, the duo soon met cellist Alex Stradal, who added classically-trained strings to their characteristic blend of storytelling lyrics and genre-bending instrumentation. With Stradal in the lineup, South for Winter hit the road; touring throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand, and turning heads as they went.

The band has landed accolades such as a Finalist for 'Best Group/Duo' in the 2023 International Acoustic Music Awards, Semi-Finalist in the 2023 and 2022 International Songwriting Competition, Official Showcase Artist at South by Southwest Music Festival in 2023, Official Showcase Artist at Folk Alliance International in 2024 and 2022, and 'Most Wanted' emerging artist at Falcon Ridge Festival in 2019. Their music has been praised by sites such as American Songwriter ("laden with delicate harmonies, intricate guitar-work, and earthy vocals... impeccable sound"), No Depression ("must-see artist"), For the Love of Bands ("a wonderful mix of indie and folk rock"), Grateful Web ("eclectic in the best sense of the word"), and AmericanaUK ("an ethereal, dreamy, journey...a journey well-worth taking").

South for Winter recorded their upcoming sophomore album, Of Sea and Sky, in Nashville TN alongside multi Grammy award-winning producer Matt Leigh (Willie Nelson, Sister Sadie). The album - out May 16, 2024 - has already received an outpouring of support, raising over $21,000 (>141% of its funding goal) for its upcoming independent release; achieving shoutouts from sites like No Depression Magazine and Grateful Web; landing on three Spotify editorial playlists with album singles; and having airplay from stations such as WMOT Roots Radio (Murfreesboro TN), WFUV Radio (NYC), Radio New Zealand, and WFMT (Chicago IL).

19 Jul 2024 // by Nicholas Clark
Although technically a sad affair, (as it was to be final of Floyd Marsden’s string of local shows promoting her album The Disco Lizards), the atmosphere in Valhalla was uncharacteristically filled with retro vibes but the usual friendly faces. In support for this show was Adult Friends, spearheaded by vocalist/guitarist Jackson Kidd who was also the producer of The Disco Lizards.
