Ogle Center says
18 South was born in the dining room of a house on the quiet Nashville Street, 18th Avenue South.

The band is the coming together of six musicians whose one common desire is to create a band defined by nothing other than its music, created by a wide array of influences.

The organic and earthy quality of their sound rings with overtones of Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, and Gospel. It lends itself perfectly to their stripped down acoustic approach that is truly “Americana.” The band members’ résumés read like an Encyclopedia of Musical History and once you see them live, you’ll know why they are individually some the most well-respected musicians on the scene today.

Larry Atamanuik (drums) and Mike Bub (doghouse bass) hold down a deep and unmovable groove behind Jimmy Wallace’s rich vocals and slamming New Orleans Style Piano that in turn gives Guthrie Trapp the opportunity to freely express his fluid and versatile guitar style. With Jon Randall’s mournful tenor vocals and solid guitar playing, the band provides a perfect venue for Jessi Alexander to nail the audience to the wall with her smoky heart wrenching vocals.

“...an uncommon collection of musicians that’s both surprising and somehow exactly right.... [18 South] can tackle just about any kind of roots music with grace, drive and plenty of soul.”
