Way Up South


Way Up South has been tearing up the New England club and festival scene and rapidly gaining a reputation as an explosive live band with a deep well of compelling original music and stellar musicianship. ​

Fresh vocal harmonies, instrumental virtuosity, and dynamic energy transference between the musicians and the audience are the hallmarks of Way Up South.

Way Up South’s expansive sound incorporates a maturity and musicianship that weaves in and out of southern, blues, country, jazz, and Americana rock—music whose precision and finesse still retain the loose spacey qualities that epitomize improvisational rock bands. This style has earned them the right to call their music “Big Sky” sound.

Their debut release, ‘Big Sky’ has been added to the rotation at Boston’s 92.5, The River, and is receiving airplay at many regional college and internet radio stations, including New England Music Awards, MIT and U Mass Lowell.
