The Southern Companion are a Country and Americana band from the South of England. Their sound is a fusion of all the music they love,“ a sonic whirlpool where the UK and US currents meet“. They are recent winners of two British Country Music Association awards (The Horizon (best newcomer) and Album of The Year for “1000 Days of Rain”). At the very beating heart of the band is their singer-songwriter and lead vocalist Darren Hodson.
The band´s collective CV is long and varied with individual members playing for Tom Jones, Lulu, Rumer, James Morrison, Lana Del Ray, Pete Townsend, Jon Allen, John Isley and Vanessa May amongst others. They have played together for over 20 years in various projects which all finally lead to The Southern Companion and the album “1000 Days of Rain”.
The band has recorded their third album, “Shine A Little Light” which was released in February 2019.
