Drive South is an acoustic trio performing eclectic folk and slices of Americana music fused from folk, country, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll. These honestly sung songs from the heart, result in real music for people to enjoy.
Mark Juenemann, Mark Hedenstrom and Scott Cummings have been actively involved in the music scene for more than 20 years. With backgrounds rooted in stage, song writing and recording, they look to paint a picture of real people striving for depth, beauty and emotion, creating a tone of genuine heartache and joy that bring about meaning in life.
Mark Hedenstrom has always ordered a side of music to go with his busy life, making it whenever he can. With roots in acoustic guitars, he has at times dabbled in country, pounded out rock and gathered friends at the bonfire. Always enjoying the songs that bring us together or the songs with a smile, the songs of our true selves can be the most revealing.
Along with playing bass, Mark Juenemann works steadily in the music business, juggling time between engineering at various recording studios to running live sound at numerous festivals around the state. Drive South gives Mark the opportunity to revisit all the singer/songwriters that have let him experience, through song, stories of road weary troubadours and their toils and strife.
After an almost 20-year pause in performing on stage, bassist Scott Cummings has returned along with a few new instruments. Now playing six string acoustic guitar, mandola and singing lead, he has found a new expression in music.
Drive South invites you to come sit a spell and hear narrative songs and ballads, spinning tales with wit and charm.
