Bands : Journey South
Journey South have come a long way since being runners-up on X Factor. The down-to-earth brothers saw their debut album ‘Journey South’ enter the charts at No.1 going on to sell a massive 500,000 copies in the UK, 217,000 of which were in the first week.
A huge 38 date sell out national tour followed in 2006, which gained rave reviews across the board for their fantastic ability to perform and sing live each night.
2007 saw the band set up its own record label, ANCA Records, and in October they fulfilled the dream of releasing their own self-written album ‘Home’. Yet again Journey South achieved another hugely successful album on the back of the emotive first single ‘What I Love About Home’, which has now been adopted by Banardos as their song of the moment. This all important second album is being released worldwide in territories such as Japan, Thailand, and the USA in early 2009.
Having just completed another huge UK tour in summer 2008 (43 dates), Journey South got the news that their first export, the self penned ‘What I Love About Home’ reached number one in the South African charts. The album has just been released over there and has already reached platinum status.
Journey South love to perform, and this reflects in their ability to captivate any audience whenever they take to the stage.
