When New Zealander Nick Stone and Coloradan Dani Cichon met as volunteers building greenhouses in South America, they never expected their lighthearted rooftop jam to evolve into an internationally-touring Americana band described by American Songwriter as "laden with delicate harmonies, intricate guitar-work and earthy vocals...impeccable sound". Years after meeting, the two musicians settled together in Christchurch NZ and forged what is now South for Winter's characteristic blend of dark, bluesy murder ballads and dreamy acoustic duets. After moving the project to Nashville TN in 2017, the duo met cellist Alex Stradal, who added classically-trained strings to their blend of storytelling lyrics and genre-bending instrumentation. With Stradal in the lineup, South for Winter hit the road, touring through over twenty-one American States and two Canadian provinces within their first two years and turning heads as they went.

In 2018 South for Winter were nominated a rising local artist by Nashville's Lightning 100 Radio; in 2019, voted a "Most Wanted" Artist at Falcon Ridge Festival; in 2020, chosen as a Top Artist of 2019 by BuzzMusic blog; in 2021, chosen as a "top DJ pick" by John Platt of New York City's WFUV, and Official Showcase Artist at Folk Alliances Regional and Midwest; and finally, in 2022, an Official Showcase Artist at Folk Alliance International. In March 2020 the trio successfully crowdfunded the independent release of their debut full-length album Luxumbra, recorded with GRAMMY-awarded producer Matt Leigh at the Tracking Room studio in Nashville TN. The album has been praised by sites such as For the Love of Bands ("a wonderful mix of indie and folk rock"), Grateful Web ("eclectic in the best sense of the word"), AmericanaUK ("a journey well-worth taking"), Relix Magazine, and DittyTV. South for Winter continue to tour nationally and internationally while preparing to enter the studio once again for their sophomore album in 2022.
