Daywind Music Group Signs Southern Gospel Trio Southbound
Daywind Music Group has announced that Southbound is the newest addition to their artist and songwriting roster.
The southern gospel trio is made up of Jody Braselton, Seth Elbe, and Clint Brown. The group was born out of their shared desire to sing the songs they grew up on and take that music as well as brand new songs to believers and non-believers alike. Southbound will release its first single to southern gospel radio soon, and is booking dates across the country.
“Daywind Records has always represented and been home to many of the best-of-the-best in our wonderful world of Southern Gospel music,” says Dusty Wells, director of artist and label relations for Daywind. “When I first heard Southbound, I couldn’t quit listening to the songs we had. I knew these guys needed to be a part of our family. Clint, Seth, and Jody all have such amazing talents and gifts, but more importantly is the anointing that rests on each of them… Our team is absolutely thrilled to walk alongside Southbound, and we cannot wait to help take their music and stories to a world that is so desperately in need of hope and healing.”
