Just a quick note today as I am sitting at the airport waiting for a red-eye flight home from California to New York. It has been a busy and beautiful 3 days in Northern California.
I just want to share a really fun and very upbeat song. I am trying to keep myself energized and awake until the moment I board that airplane so that I can fall asleep and I have listened to this song about 10 times!
Southern is a young brother-sister duo from Belfast, Ireland, which consists of Thom and Lucy Southern. They have this amazing folksy blues sound which is just really cool. They make great music together which is upbeat, a little raucous, and just a lot of fun. They released their debut, self-titled album, Southern, in December. I think they have a great sound which will definitely lead to more. Gerry Anderson from BBC Radio called the band:
Not much more to write today as I have to leave in 10 minutes to go catch my flight. I hope you like this song. Another good one to check out by Southern is called, “Where The Wild Are.” I will return to some regularity when I return to NY tomorrow. Here’s to hoping to get some sleep on that plane!
