The Southern Lights are a four-piece Rock/Americana band based in Asheville, NC. Born from the mountains of Boone, NC in 1998 and settling in Asheville in the summer of 2000, they hand-built a recording studio where they began work on their first full-length album. "from the seed" was released the very next year, and The Southern Lights began touring the Eastern U.S. that summer. Over the next seven years, the band included a number of other musicians including saxophone and keyboard players, and experimented as a trio for several shows, but regrouped into its original formation - Pat Cardwell (guitar), Scott Stewart (guitar), Eric Swanson (bass) and Brad Boughton (drums) in 2009 to begin work on new songs and play stages locally and regionally again.
