Dirty in the Light Ep 2009

I Love My Tribe 2012

Faithful Brave & Honest 2014



Come alive with electric soul rock-n-roll band: The Honorable South. Timeless Americana songwriting, raw rock anthem energy, 808s, guitar licks, feel good verses, and soulful roots commentary drive this inimitable creative force. Hailing from New Orleans, USA, their 2012 release of I Love My Tribe, a follow up to their 2009 EP Dirty in the Light, saw the band featured in 365 Dreams Band of the Day  iPhone app, blazing across festival stages, and supporting international and national acts like Girl in a Coma, Cody ChesnuTT, and Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes.

Their sophomore release Faithful Brave & Honest is a gallant sonic feat. It sounds like an electric novella set in New Orleans and feels like a spirited testament to what can happen when dreams, reality, and originality dance to wild rhythms at dusk. The South cultivates in their tribe: a celebration, a unity, and an awareness of individual power. The Honorable South is spellbinding Rock-n-soul goddess, vocalist/songwriter Ms. Charm Taylor, guitarist/composer Matthew Rosenbeck, bassist/songwriter Charles Lumar II, the unorthodox drummer Jamal Batiste (Get on Up, Los Hombres Calientes, Jon Cleary & AMG, The Wild Magnolias) and renowned guitarist/producer Danny Kartel (Rap a Lot, No Limit).
