George Lane St Kilda | Melbourne, VI

The Distant South bring their unique Country sound to George Lane, with support from highly acclaimed Solo Artist - Kris Mizzi.
The Distant South weave tales from life’s rich tapestry, into melody and harmony-soaked songs, brought to sonic life through a rich blend of guitar, banjo, double bass, lap steel, mandolin and drums.
2023 was a big year for The Distant South with the release of their debut, self-titled album, recorded with Myles Mumford at Rolling Stock Studios and mastered by Adam Dempsey at Deluxe. This 10-track record is a collection of beautifully captured songs that are incredibly personal - and at the same time immediately familiar to many.
The band's unique sound and authentic story telling have garnered them a growing fan base and critical acclaim that has seen them play at many of Melbourne and Country Victoria’s favourite independent music venues. In 2023, the band extensively toured their new record as well as providing a glimpse of what’s to come through a growing catalogue of new songs.
