local- alt rock/ Americana

Thanks to spots opening for Hootie and the Blowfish and Collective Soul, the guys in Charleston-based Southwood have been making a name for themselves throughout the Southeast. Their new EP, Dixiana, is a Hootie-meets-Tom Petty ode to hot summer days and walks along Folly Beach. “We wanted to tell some stories that resonated within us,” lead singer Mitch Wetherington says. Guitarist Henri Gates adds, “We were able to really express ourselves with Dixiana, and I think you can hear it in the songs.” Southwood recently held an EP release party at Midtown Bar and Grill, and they’ve been hitting the local scene pretty hard since then, picking up gigs at the Tin Roof and the Mt. Pleasant Wild Wing. The chicken chain, in particular, has a particular fondness for Wetherington, Gates, and their bandmates; Southwood is about to embark on a Wild Wing tour of sorts that’ll send them to Columbia, Hilton Head, and Savannah.
