G.W. Souther is a 4 piece band that features members originally from Alabama and Florida whose talents have combined to form a rather unique sound and stage presence in the original music scene. While being based out of Orlando, FL, The fellas released their debut EP "Freedom on the Line" in mid May 2017 which features the musical blend of reggae, rock, and a lot of soul. It's drawn a lot of attention around central Florida as they continue to build a second body of work slated to be released mid to late 2018. While they spend the majority of their stage time performing various cover and original tunes, the recording process and creative develop is in full effect. With their latest singles “I’m Cool” and “Dr. Bad Girl” already leading 2018, they continue to impress with the full production and songwriting. They got their start as a party band while performing in various venues across the state of Florida. 

 

What’s so unique about G.W. Souther is the old school influence from bands like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and many more that play their instruments and sing on stage. Each of the 4 brothers bring something unique to the stage inspiring great vibes from elements like Soul,Pop,Rock,Funk, and Experimental. With the addition of guitarist and vocalist Drew Williams from Deland,FL, the brothers have added another soulful and experimental element in reaching people with raw talent and ridiculous musicianship. Prior to joining the band, Drew cowrote and played guitar on “Dr. Bad Girl” which features a heavy drive within the guitar performance as well as an edge in the lyrics like no other music G.W. Souther has released.
