SSE Play Pop Up Show

Big thanks to everyone who came out to our pop up show at The Earl in Atlanta, GA! Originally billed as an Amber Taylor solo show, we decided it was the right time to surprise everyone with new songs and players! We are really excited to introduce our new vocalist/keyboardist Ellen Meadows and drummer Shawn Thacker (from The Southern Gothic), and we have more surprises in store soon! Here’s a little clip from the show below. Please like, and share!
