The Southern Gothic
Since 2007, The Southern Gothic original members Connor (lead vox/ guitar/ piano), Spirko (fiddle/ guitar/ piano/ vocals) and Shawn Thacker (drums) have been bringing their unique brand of sun-baked, road-worn country, southern rock & soul to countless stages and fans across the US. Currently based in Nashville, TN, ’SoGo’ has shared stages with such artists as Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Big & Rich, Zac Brown Band, Styx, Uncle Kracker, Corey Smith, Gloriana, ZZ Top, Heart and more.
The diverse nature of the artists with whom they’ve toured reflects the diversity of the band’s sound. “It works,” says Connor in regard to the varying nature of the audiences. “We’ve played to country crowds, rock crowds, young crowds, old crowds. We’ve played to jam band audiences and we’ve played bluegrass festivals. The response with all of them has been fantastic.”
