One Flew South plays an organic, groove laced, brand of gritty country rock, scattered with tight harmonies-- rekindling the fires of great vocal groups such as Alabama, The Eagles and Crosby,Stills and Nash. Formed in August 2005, the trio consists of Chris Roberts, Royal Reed and Eddie Bush. With the intention to form an entertaining vocal experience, One Flew South have uniquely taken three voices and seamlessly created one sound causing an infectious vocal combustion. They have successfully captured songs covering a musical landscape of roots, country, rock and soul. Chris Roberts moved to New York by way of Montana (he met Reed Royal in New York where both had gravitated in pursuit of a music career), ended up in Nashville, where he was encouraged by legendary country music singer-songwriter Larry Gatlin--who had his own stellar career singing lead in a trio with his brothers. Chris then hooked up with Marcus Hummon, a Nashville-based songwriter whose catalog contained six No. 1 hits from the likes of The Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts' Grammy-winning "Bless the Broken Road." In 2006 One Flew South was offered and accepted a record deal from Decca/Universal Records and a song publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The trio then proceeded to record their debut, Last of the Good Guys (to be released April 29, 2008), with the help of top songwriters--most notably J.D. Souther, who co-wrote such Eagles' classics as "Best of My Love" and "Heartache Tonight." "With beautiful echoes of the great harmony groups like Poco, Eagles, even The Beach Boys; One Flew South are the new kids in town," noted the legendary songwriter. Also enlisted were session musicians to provide an instrumental sound as classic as the three-part vocal blend. The key players were drummer John Gardner, bassist Mark Prentice, banjo player Wanda Vick, and of course Eddie on guitars--with added coloring from Bruce Hornsby & The Range guitarist George Marinelli and Marcus Hummon on acoustic guitar and mandolin and piano.
