South for Winter

Americana, Blues, Roots

With a blend of dreamy acoustic duets, foot-stomping folk and bluesy murder ballads, New Zealand-born and Nashville-based South for Winter’s sound is as eclectic as their origins. The band is composed of New Zealander Nick Stone, Colorado native Dani Cichon, and Michigander Alex Stradal, and together the three multi-instrumentalists and songwriters combine elements such as cello, guitar, mandolin, and three-part harmonies into a genre-bending sound described by American Songwriter as “impeccable”. South for Winter recorded their debut album Luxumbra with GRAMMY award-winning producer Matt Leigh and crowdfunded its independent release in 2020. Luxumbra’s release has landed the band accolades such as a “Most Wanted” Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge Festival, “Top DJ Pick” by NYC’s DJ John Platt in 2021, and official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International in 2022. The band are now in the studio once again with Matt Leigh for their much-anticipated sophomore album.
