Hailing from the small town of Greenville, in the same region of the Lonestar State from which powerhouses like Whiskey Myers and Koe Wetzel got their start, The Weathered Souls are a band that needs to be on everyone’s radar.
The six piece southern rock outfit has a gritty, soulful sound that is backed by a guitar heavy attack and highlighted by impressive songwriting.
A relatively new act on the scene, The Weathered Souls released their first music in 2021 and have been steadily adding to their catalog since, most recently with their brand new single “One More Day” dropping this week.
A heavy song that is perhaps more gentle sonically than the majority of the tunes in their hard charging catalog, “One More Day” addresses the difficult topic of mortality, and more specifically, how difficult it can be to have a loved one pass away, even when you can see the end coming.
“Selfish as it may be I’m the one that’s gotta keep going on when you Draw your last breath I’ll hold your hand It’s gonna break me down”
2023 has been a massive year for The Weathered Souls, who amidst a busy touring schedule of headlining gigs, festivals, and opening slots with Whiskey Myers and Southall, still found the time to drop their debut album Till The Morning Comes back in April, as well as the Till The Morning Comes (Live Acoustic) EP in July.
With ten rock and roll tracks that showcase the up and coming band’s sonic capabilities as well as their exceptional songwriting, Till The Morning Comes is an awesome debut and a huge step in the right direction for a band that I suspect will see a quick rise as they play more shows and continue to release more new music.
Check out a few of my favorites off of the album here.

I caught The Weathered Souls live opening for Southall at The Underground in Charlotte earlier this week, and with spectacular instrumentation and a killer stage presence, it was obvious they have something special in the works.
They did exactly what they were supposed to do as an opener, getting the crowd fired up for Southall to take the stage, yet taking the opportunity to show what they are made of.
Although they may have been opening that night, The Weathered Souls played with a gusto and attitude that made sure everyone knew they’d be headlining the next time they roll through town, and I can’t wait for that. They still have a handful of dates left on the road with Southall and a few headlining gigs left this year, and I highly recommend checking them out if they are coming to a city near you.
