Bio

With dynamite vocals and fierce guitar playing, Emilee South hollers throwback rock’n’roll.

Electrifying band in tow, South has been exploding with a distorted and raucous live show.
In 2017, their EP ‘Motel’ was released with a bang and launched to a roaring, sold-out crowd at The Gasometer.
South and band have also supported the likes of The Teskey Brothers, Mojo Juju, Ruby Boots and WILSN, as well as making their debut at Americana Festival in Nashville, TN in 2017.

South releases devastating new single, ‘Heartbreaker’. Combining elements of psycho-surf and rock’n’roll, it’s a taste of things to come on their debut album.

With an official showcase at BIGSOUND this September, as well as playing Out On The Weekend and Kyneton Music Festival, 2018 is set to be a real hip-shaker of a year ahead for Emilee South.

Emilee hitting all the right steps in this dusty, rockabilly dance routine.

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!
