Southern Halo

I got the chance to speak with the Members of Southern Halo, a great Trio of sisters from the Mississippi Delta. On the phone with me were Hannah, who plays bass, and the drummer of the group, Christina. Natalia, was not on the call but equally represented. I met the group at “Chillin on the Lucie” festival event, and watched them play…. They were wonderful! So, we made plans for a phone chat.

A little background about the group, they are on the cusp of emerging from their teens into that all encompassing, adulthood. But I have to tell you , they were poised, mature, and professional. Being from the “delta” area of the country they mentioned that they started out as a Blues group, but then transitioned to Country. Of course the next question was: Have you been to Nashville? (which they have, but by now you know my love of that city), and yes, they are based out of there and home in Mississippi. In fact, they were there to play some local gigs for the people back home and they were very excited about it. They tour the country with their Mom and Dad, playing in places like, Florida, Texas, Arizona, and doing the summer festival route. A highlight performance of their tour is going to be at The Grammy Museum in Cleveland on October 18. The girls were extremely excited about that.

Southern Halo has a  Second new album out called, “Just Like in The Movies” and it is actually a concept album, it tells the story of their experiences being young, teenagers, growing up in the Delta and  Southern Life. There are 14 songs on the album, and listening in order, you understand their message, just like a movie! New SIngle “I think too much”

The girls impressed me the most when they told me they were involved with “High School Nation” This is a program and tour that brings various young and up and coming music groups to  High schools across the country. The inspiration is to keep music and the arts up and front in schools. You can read more about the tour and how it works at : www.HighSchoolNation.com.

Listening to the album today, I heard the perfect harmonies of the girls, the pitch was spot on and even got a little Taylor Swift feel. It is the perfect combo. And the family travels together. Just perfection!!

Hi, Im Robin. I have been a music groupie/follower, since the '70s (showing my age). Gr0wing up in Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y. there was not a lot of Country music playing on the airways. I always found a way to seek out the country side of my youth, Marshall Tucker Band, Poco, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash, and my absolute all time favorite, Dwight Yoakam. The list goes on. (of course my disco friends, never knew this,) Moving to Florida in the early 1980's was awesome! There was more than one Country radio station on FM!! I discovered the greats like Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis. Line dancing every weekend, I was in heaven!! There is so much great talent out there now, its exciting and they are extremely innovative with their craft. I look forward to each time a new song and album are released. My son is a bass player and has moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a touring musician, and he is on the road right now. I guess you can say it runs in the family. :) So now I get the chance to visit the home of country music, Nashville!!! I love reaching out to the up and comers here in FLorida, there is so much amazing talent. This is not just a job, but a passion!!! Robin
