Who are we ?

The Southern generals are a UK based Americana/Country Band blending original material with less obvious covers. Style and influences range from Dwight Yoakham, Steve Earle through Lynyrd Skynyrd to The Band and CCR 

The band is led by Ian Flavill (vocals) and Rob Blackman (Guitars),  both former members of Alter States,  a highly respected Essex Americana Band.   

The band works with array of quality musicians to capture the true essence of their country/americana self-penned songs while adding sufficient originality and authenticity to anything the band covers.

The band's live focus will be in Essex, UK during 2016 where we have a residency on the LAST Thursday of every month at The Bassment, Chelmsford, Essex.

For the best Americana in Essex come to the Bassment each month to see The Southern Generals with an array of special guests both National and International.
