Based out of Detroit, MI, Striking South has been impressing audiences all over. Founded in September 2005 by brothers Robert and Michael Vincent and Jamie Darnell, Striking South hit the Detroit rock scene as a foot stompin', hard rockin' trio.
Upon release of their self-titled debut CD in January of 2008, Striking South's song "Hangin' On" hit the airwaves on Radio ARIA in France, Belgium and parts of Germany. Striking South's song "One Foot in the Grave" has also received random air time on WRIF 101.1 in Detroit, MI and The Banana 101.5 in Flint, MI. Aside from commerical radio, the band's music has been in circulation on many internet radio stations from Detroit all the way to Australia. Nearly four years after their debut release , Striking South's version of John Denver's "Take Me Home Country Roads" is still one of the best selling versions of the song on iTunes.
In the spring of 2010 Striking South had the opportunity to work with legendary rock producer Beau Hill. Beau's vast discography has sold nearly 50 million units worldwide and is most famous for his work with Ratt, Warrant, Winger, Kix, Europe, Alice Cooper, Stevie Nicks and Eric Clapton. The result was the release of Striking South's single "Fall to Shadow" from their upcoming album. 2010 also brought the addition of rhythm guitarist David Wojtan. A former bandmate from a previous band, David was deemed the perfect fit for Striking South.
