Raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of South Carolina, Americana singer Sam Burchfield was brought up on Appalachian music: folk, gospel, country and southern soul. Jumping over the state line to settle in Jasper, GA, gateway to the Appalachian Trail, Burchfield’s music beautifully reflects the landscape that raised him while organically carrying the tradition of storytelling forward.
Burchfield’s latest single ‘Scoundrel’ begins a new saga. It emerges as the cathartic title track of his upcoming record. Written by an alter-ego, the record dives into 11 tales of greed, betrayal, desire, heartache, despair- and redemption. “We recorded these songs on my friend’s farm in South Georgia, tracking live in the same room. It felt right,” Sam recalls of the pre-pandemic recording sessions. “It’s nice to finally have this new single out. It’s sort of a marker of a new chapter for me. A new sound, a new direction, and a return to my roots really.”
Growing up in Charleston, SC, Jack Austen, Jacob Simmons, & Katie Bailey were surrounded by music. Whether it was The Chicks and Fleetwood Mac playing in the car or old Johnny Cash albums on vinyl, the trio was always singing along. Southbound 17 began in the early Fall of 2014. As another Summer came to a close, the band played their first open mic at a local bar. Since that night, they haven’t slowed down.
After releasing their self-titled debut EP in 2017, Southbound 17 went on to be featured at the Charleston Music Confab two years in a row, and has opened for Nashville acts like Mickey Guyton and Brandy Clark.
In their music, acoustic guitar, banjo, and mandolin are layered with visually compelling lyrics and tight harmonies to create a fresh “East Coast Western” sound. The group’s new single “Runaway Bride” is available everywhere now.
