Southern Rock, Alternative
The South is an alternative country music experience, but still represents the best of southern music and its song writing traditions. This new country sound, combined with the experience of seasoned musicians and a classic vocal style, culminate in something very unique, both on stage and in the studio.
Chris Conner, lead vocalist and song writer, formed the band in Lexington, South Carolina in the summer of 2004. Drawing from his experiences with the group Sourwood Honey, Conner was able to bring together five talents who all shared a certain philosophy and dedication toward their craft. The sound they have created is progressive but true to its roots.
The five member band includes drummer Jimmy Branham, bassist Trey Brown, lead-guitarist Charles Funk and vocalist Nicole Hagenmeyer.
Branham, formerly of Treadmill Trackstar, and Brown, with several studio and television preformance credits, provide a solid foundation to The South's pleasing sound. Charles Funk, once with S-Tribe, adds a brash, but smart style of guitar that contrasts well with the deep rich folk-harmonies created by Conner and Hagenmeyer.
