Good Ground formed in 2012 when husband and wife duo John and Carla Wills, with long time friend and musical collaborator Zach Thomas, began writing and recording original songs that combined Carla’s love of singer/songwriter folk music with John and Zach’s ten years of writing and performing together in various guitar-driven rock bands. Good Ground has roots in the Chicago suburbs.

About “South Wind, Northern Songs”

"South Wind, Northern Songs" is the new album by Good Ground co-written by John Wills, Carla Wills, and Zach Thomas. The writing and guitar-driven musical performances showcase vocal tradeoffs by John and Carla Wills, dynamic blends of layered acoustic and electric guitars, tempos that range from driving upbeat to melancholy and slow. Much of it was dreamed up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin during the band’s yearly musical escape. The album was recorded at the historic Quonset Hut recording studio in Nashville, TN and mastered at The Boiler Room in Chicago, IL.
