Few Miles South


August 30, 2020

Few Miles South is a female fronted country and roots group created by South GA raised, Blake English, and Los Angeles native, Tori Lund. The two met in 2014 while playing in an L.A. church. Tori, a classically trained singer and piano teacher, and Blake, a multi-instrumentalist and producer, connected over a shared love of country music. They began to write and record songs with intentions to shop them to other artists, but a couple years bonding with their catalog compelled them to wrangle up some local musicians and form a band. Eager to pursue music and ditch the city, Tori and Blake quit their jobs and headed south to the Georgia pines.

FMS offers a refreshing take on the traditional genre while “stick[ing] with tried and true country backroads” (Skope Magazine). They strive to share honest stories with influences ranging from Hank Williams to Emmylou Harris to The Band. Their first single and music video, “On Down the Road,” charted overseas and was awarded “Best International Music Video” in 2017 by HOTDISC Country Music Awards. In 2018, they released a 5 track EP, Might Could, which features renowned pedal steel guitarist Bob “Boo” Bernstein (Tanya Tucker, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakum). Just a year later they followed up with a full length album, Californ I Aint. This past year they earned a coveted slot at Stagecoach on Nikki Lane’s
curated stage and opened for artists such as Junior Brown and The
Kentucky Headhunters. FMS does all their writing, producing and
recording together in house mostly deep in the Georgia pines. They released their new
bluegrass EP, Wiregrass, in March 2020.
