Southern Union – Summary
Southern Union – Lotte Mullan with Simon Johnson
Southern Union play classic country by the likes of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Elvis.
Whether you want a dance floor hoedown or some more relaxed saloon bar shuffles Southern Union play from the Jukebox of country classics and provide a wonderful atmosphere at any event.
The heart of Southern Union is critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Lotte Mullan (“Exquisite” Guardian/ “Say hi to Suffolk’s Joni Mitchell’ Q /“A young Loretta Lynn” The Telegraph) and guitar player Simon Johnson (Lana Del Rey, James Morrison, Dire Straights)  Fresh off a trip to Nashville Southern Union have been playing with Grammy award winning songwriter James House and rubbing shoulders with country stars at the legendary Ryman auditorium.

Lead singer Lotte Mullan also recorded an album with Grammy nominated Band of Horses which is due for release Autumn 2014. A blog she was writing about the music business has since been commissioned for a film by Elton John’s Rocket Pictures.   Southern Union were lucky enough to have four of their songs used on Ridley Scott’s short film ‘Kismet diner’ which won first prize at Manhattan short film festival last year (video attached below).
The key to Southern Union is they are completely in love with the Great American songbook of which country music plays such a large part – these songs are steeped in our bones and can move us to tears, laughter or one big party.

Bespoke options below means the clients/you can really get involved in the set list  choosing from the current large repertoire of songs and adding in up to 6 songs that mean something special to the client.  Bear in mind this is a consultation so what we’ll end up with is a set list that flows and will sound great – Lotte has ultimate veto over what’s performed on the night – just in case (unlikely) anyone introduces something that she in her professional status feels will not work.

£3,105 for 4 piece band (Lotte can meet the client/skype, provide a bespoke service/set list)
