"..the dude who might just save UK country music,  Darren Hodson better known as The Southern Companion."

Rudie Humphrey, Horseshoe Lounge Radio Show

Where Americana meets the Road To Perdition. Catchy, rootsy, retro and organic, Darren Hodson and Southern Companion deliver 1000 days of emotional substance. Warren Haynes, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, they would all be proud.

"Southern Companion are that shaded area, the bit in the middle, of the Venn diagram that is country music and Americana, the switch point between the two genres.  He/they are multiple winners at the latest BCMAs and their album, ‘1000 Days of Rain’ is one of the best UK country records of the last 10 years."
