South For Winter

With a blend of dreamy acoustic duets, bluesy murder ballads & foot-stomping Folk, New Zealand-formed 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” and AmericanaUK as "a journey well-worth taking". After recording their debut album Luxumbra with GRAMMY award-winning producer Matt Leigh in Nashville, the trio made a name for themselves with head-turning live performances, storytelling lyrics, and complex instrumentation. South for Winter has been nominated as a 2022 Semi-Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, 2022 IAMA Finalist, and winner of Falcon Ridge Festival's 2019 "Emerging Artist" showcase. Between touring throughout the U.S., Canada, and New Zealand, the trio is back in the studio with Matt Leigh for their sophomore album "Of Sea and Sky". The first single, "Something in the Stars", was released March 2023.
