Formed in Louisville, Kentucky in November 2011, Southern Solstice played locally at the many wonderful bars and clubs in and around The 'Ville as well as on the sidewalks of downtown Louisville and Nashville building a strong, loyal, fantastic fan base only to come to an indefinite pause after 8 months.
Currently based in Elyria, Ohio (20 miles outside of Cleveland), the band is once again active as of December 2012 after a 6-month hiatus.
Their extreme passion for music, along with 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 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, Mumford and Sons, 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.
