Southern Avenue

Score: 0

Southern Avenue is a Memphis street that runs from the easternmost part of the city limits all the way to Soulsville, a neighborhood that was the original home of Stax Records. Southern Avenue is also the name of a fiery young Memphis quintet that embodies its home city’s soul, blues, and gospel traditions, while adding a youthful spirit and dynamic energy all their own. “If Memphis music is a genre, this is it!” proclaims American Blues Scene magazine. The radio program Memphis Made on Rock 103 FM calls Southern Avenue, “one of the most talked about bands in Memphis.” The group’s self-titled debut album is a breath of fresh air, with its own unique blend of gospel-tinged R&B vocals, roots- and blues-based guitar work, and soul-inspired songwriting. And its upcoming release on the fabled Stax label is a testament to the young combo’s talent and vision.
