Bio

With dynamite vocals and fierce guitar playing, Emilee South plays charging rock’n’roll.

Emilee South and band released their 2017 EP, ‘Motel’, to a roaring sold-out crowd at The Gasometer, and the following years have seen them sharpen their explosive and raucous live show with official showcases at Bigsound, spots at Out On The Weekend, St. Kilda Fest and Dirt Daze Weekend, as well as supporting the likes of The Teskey Brothers, Mojo Juju and Motor Ace.

Due for release May 3, ‘Shotgun’ is the fast-love new single from Emilee South. A follow up to 2018’s psycho-surf ‘Heartbreaker’, it revolves around a heavy riff, with fierce vocals and shredding, untamed guitars.

Emilee South and band celebrate the release with a Melbourne show on May 17 at The Old Bar, and a regional Vic show on May 18, supporting The Delta Riggs.

Emilee sounds like a fiery southern bell with a voice full sweet soulful charm. She cuts through the rumble of the instruments and timbre of the male harmonies and transports you to another time and place. Bravo!
