The Southern Hold is the name Lee Murray and Greg Nix use to send their folk/rock/indie/acoustic tunes out into the world. Emerging in winter of 2018, the songwriting duo quickly gained a following on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, with their blend of folk rock, Alt Country vibe compositions.

The two lefty guitarist/vocalists, (one might say that they hold their guitars in a southern fashion) write from a diverse background of musical tastes, pulling on elements of the grunge scene, to obscure punk and folk songs from their childhood. Sharing main vocal duties opens up the vocal/dynamic range of their heartfelt songs and makes for the opportunity for melodies that are familiar, yet unique.

Earning themselves spots on boutique music festivals, (Wingham Akoostik Festival and Old Bar Beach festival) within months of forming, the duo headed into Paradyme Studios in Taree NSW to record their debut E.P. with producer Hamish McDonald at the helm.
