More information: Formed by Sean Timms following the dissolution of his previous band Unitopia, Southern Empire claim influences from the likes of Dream Theater, IQ, Transatlantic, Karnivool and Steven Wilson, bringing a harder, more edgy sound to their music whilst displaying a knack for catchy songs and great melodic hooks. Their first album SOUTHERN EMPIRE also features a bonus DVD of footage of the album material.
After a 17 year stint as main song-writer, producer and keyboard player with Unitopia Sean was looking to bring the finest musicians together in one band. He feels he's achieved that with Southern Empire.
