Southern Avenue, the high-voltage, roots-infused powerhouse hailing from the legendary musical haven of Memphis, Tennessee, has been setting stages ablaze since their explosive Stax Records debut in 2017. Boasting a magnetic energy and a soul-stirring repertoire, this dynamic ensemble has mesmerized audiences worldwide with their heart-pounding performances and emotionally charged compositions. 

Their meteoric rise in the music industry is underscored by a coveted GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Contemporary Blues Album” and multiple nods at the Blues Music Awards, where they are currently in the running for “Band of the Year” in the 2024 edition. In 2018, they clinched the title of “Best Emerging Artist,” solidifying their rapid trajectory to stardom. 

The band, consisting of lead vocalist Tierinii Jackson, guitarist Ori Naftaly, keyboardist Jeremy Powell, drummer Tikyra Jackson, and the versatile Ava Jackson on vocals, percussion, and violin, forms a musical juggernaut. The harmonious blend of Tierinii, Tikyra, and Ava’s voices creates an unparalleled sound that resonates deeply with audiences, adding an extra layer of soulfulness to their performances. The familial bond within the band not only enhances their on-stage cohesion but infuses their music with an intimate authenticity that is unmistakable. 

”Playing our music around the world, sharing our story through our own artistic expression is something that every artist dreams ofand there is no greater feeling as a family than making your dreams come true together,” says Tierinii. “Music is our inheritance, we are blessed and honored to uphold the tradition.” 

Drawing inspiration from their Memphis roots, Southern Avenue seamlessly fuses blues, soul, and gospel influences into a distinctive sound that pays homage to the city’s rich musical heritage. Their impact extends far beyond the music, as they’ve graced stages at renowned festivals around the globe, including ACL Fest, Electric Forest, Byron Bay, and Bonnaroo, leaving an indelible mark on audiences. 

Having toured with luminaries such as Sheryl Crow, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and Jason Mraz, Southern Avenue is set to embark on the prestigious Outlaw Music Festival Tour in Fall 2024, joining the lineup alongside Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan, and John Mellencamp. Additionally, the band just finished recording their fourth LP and Alligator Records debut at Memphis’ legendary Royal Studio. Produced by Multi-GRAMMY® winner John Burk (Ray Charles, Melissa Etheridge, George Benson) and recorded by Multi-GRAMMY® winner Boo Mitchell (Bruno Mars, Cedric Burnside, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram), Southern Avenue continues to solidify their status as trailblazers in the realms of Contemporary Blues and Roots music.
