November 2017
The video for The Last Song – the 1st song on the upcoming Southern Wind album, is featured on Americana-UK.
Dean: The first song Will Kimbrough and I wrote together (for Southern Wind). We bonded through our mutual love of Ronnie Lane and The Waterboys. We wanted to write a kinda pub rock song for the end of the night and we just sat jamming and throwing in names of some of our heroes.
The video was made by Ruth Barrie (Waltzer Films) and features the kids from Tribe Porty Youth Theatre.
The Last Song will be released as a FREE download single on Black Friday (24 Nov 2017)
