Gone South has tight vocals and music with drive and feeling. They often mix pure bluegrass with smatterings of other genres of music, producing a unique sound. Don't be surprised to hear a Greg Allman song following a Hank Williams tune. When Gone South first got together in 1996, it was agreed that they would do songs with a story, no matter where they found them, with their own bluegrass styling. Next Stop is the appropriate following to their first CD, First Stop. Next Stop has taken Gone South to another level of performance. New band members and original songs as well as covers make up this eclectic array of music. Make Next Stop your next CD to add to your listening enjoyment. Long-time friends and families produce the best harmonies. Charlotte and Cliff Albright have been married and singing together since 1971; his solid voice and guitar playing mix well with Charlotte's strong singing and harmonies. Charlotte also plays harmonica and fiddle. Wayne Walker, bass, does double duty with lead and harmony vocals, in his own soulful contemporary and traditional styles. Chuck Clark on the banjo is best described as fantastic. He's a prolific songwriter, and the band does several of Chuck's songs. Bob Barnett plays the mandolin, resonator guitar, and occasional fiddle to round out Gone South. Anyone lucky enough to see Gone South live is in for an exciting interplay between the band and the audience. This group enjoys itself, and that comes through on stage and in their recordings.
