South Of France

Simulate summer with radiant indie pop for leisurely beach holidays
And I-I-I find love in the morning, and you-you-you find sunrise boring, so we won't ever meet until the day turns blue.
lyrics from Lost in the Morning

South Of France is an indie-pop band that was initially started by multi-intstrumentalist/producer/songwriter Jeff Cormack just over a year ago. Inspired by his love for retro guitar pop, It started as a small collection of songs that Jeff was writing and recording in his spare time when he wasn’t writing/producing for film, television, and/or other recording artists. As the songs developed, Jeff realized that the addition of a female vocalist would bring a great new element to the sound. So… Jeff was lucky enough to meet singer and songwriter Kelly Lueke in Los Angeles. They quickly realized they had astonishingly similar taste in music and decided to join forces.

South of France’s first release “Kings”, a 3 song EP was released in November of 2011 and landed them features in Filter Magazine, Under The Radar Magazine, and earned great reviews from several influential music blogs around the world.

Their debut full-length album “Another Boring Sunrise” was listed on several major music blog’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2012” lists and was self-released on Sept. 18th 2012. This album again landed them features in Under The Radar magazine, Filter Magazine, Band of the Day, and has earned several excellent reviews from numerous influential music blogs around the world. Another Boring Sunrise has also spent 5 weeks on Bandcamp’s “Best-Selling Digital Releases”, and continues to grow world-wide as several songs from the album have been placed in numerous major motion pictures and national commercials.

Since the release of their debut album, they have shared the stage with major acts including Two Door Cinema Club, Divine Fits, Sea Wolf, Tamaryn, Exitmusic, Hundred Waters, Friends, and many more. Their live show has been described as an energetic, non-stop, sweaty, beach party, and leaves the audience amazed by how much sound they are able to create as a three piece band. With several scheduled showcases, they will be a staple at many of this year’s festivals, they will continue to support other larger acts, and they will continue to pack venues as they headline their own shows around the country.
