Hailing from Belfast, Southern are a musical trio consisting of siblings Thom and Lucy Southern. Lead vocalist and songwriter Thom Southern got his start busking around Belfast and Dublin for pocket money. At the age of 17 he won ‘Belfast Busker of the Year Award’ which gave him a coveted slot in the Belfast Nashville festival. Through the festival he won the ‘Katherine Brick Award’ for ‘Young Songwriter of the Year’. Soon afterwards Thom joined together with his sister Lucy and their childhood friend Jonny Lee.
Now they are launching their EP ‘World don’t shine’ in Mandela Hall on the 27th May, so get your tickets and pop along.
“Southern are the single most promising singer/songwriters in Ireland today.” (Gerry Anderson – BBC Radio Ulster)
