about

Southerner is:
Austin Lord
Mitch Schneider
Sam Jennings

Deeply rooted in the essence of singer/songwriter culture, but with the depth and structure of a full band, Southerner’s debut EP stretches the boundaries of what many would consider acoustic and folk music. Airy dispositions and soft moments of silence are coupled with beautiful artistry in both lyrical content and instrumentation. These three songs are a perfect representation of what Southerner aims to be - heavily focused on an intricate singer/songwriter foundation, but toying with the joys and climaxes of modern post-rock.

Track Name: A Song for Old Songs
Oh, the stories
The stories that you told
Of being young
And slowly getting old
It makes you afraid,
But it happens every day

You were my shade
In a world with a thousand suns
You couldn’t stay
It was everything or none
I was destined to lose
When you had to choose

It’s easy to have a better half
When you feel no good at all
It’s easy just to lay on down
Once you’ve had a fall
You treat me like I’m crazy
You must think be to be a fool
I never played your games,
Yet somehow broke the rules

When you want me
Just grab me off the shelf
Right where you left me
When you had me to yourself
Just blow the dust off my face
And put me back in my place
Track Name: Kingdom Come
I don't understand the heart of a man
Who takes without a cause
Maybe it's just to prove
That we've got something to lose
Or to show the world his flaws

So I'll hide the truth right in my heart
So I can tell the world apart
From fallen man and kingdom come.

This place is my home
It's built of my bones,
And its roots grow far in time
And tragedy seeks homes far beyond me,
But I never thought it would be mine.

So I'll hide the truth right in my heart
So I can tell the world apart
From fallen man and kingdom come.
Track Name: Write the Rest
Between a humble sense of life
And the possibilities I could take this world
And fill it with my dreams
As I stand loosely on the ground
Telling my young self that stars are at my feet

I am torn between what was and what might be
Like a page that has been ripped from a beautiful story
In my mind I always try to write the rest

I breathe one day through the next
And through them recollect
The things that a younger me once learned
If I knew the things that I know now
I would tell myself to make each day a start

I am torn between what was and what might be
Like a page that has been ripped from a beautiful story
In my mind I always try to write the rest
