A little bit funk, a little bit roots, a little bit blues, and a whole lot of soul, Southern Avenue will bring it ALL to this season’s Emerging Artist Saturday at the Lincoln Amphitheatre! Emerging Artist Saturday will, hopefully, become an annual season offering and will feature amazing nationally-touring talent.
Memphis-based, GRAMMY-nominated Southern Avenue inked their first record deal with the legendary Stax Records in 2016. The first Memphis band signed to Stax in over 40 years (FORTY YEARS!), their self-titled debut was an immediate phenomenon, reaching #1 on iTunes’ “Top Blues Albums” chart before being honored with the 2018 Blues Music Award for “Best Emerging Artist Album”. 2019’s KEEP ON proved an even greater success, debuting among the top 5 on Billboard’s “Top Blues Albums” chart amidst worldwide critical acclaim, ultimately, earning Southern Avenue their first GRAMMY Award nomincation for “Best Contemporary Blues Album”.
In 2021, Southern Avenue released their third full-length album Be the Love You Want (produced by multi-GRAMMY winner Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Susan Tedeschi, Deer Tick). American Songwriter called it a “potent soul force!” and No Depression proclaimed it be “one of the most listenable, and danceable, records of the year.”
Since this release, the band has continued its breakneck touring schedule with 2022 highlights including Bonnaroo, the Austin City Limits Festival, and supporting Sheryl Crow as well as Keb’ Mo in multiple cities and three separate tours in Europe.
And in 2023, we are excited to welcome this energetic and talented powerhouse of a band to the Kyana Woodstock Performance Stage at the Lincoln Amphitheatre.
