Watch Every South X Lullaby From SXSW 2016

As The Smiths know, sometimes you just need someone to sing you to sleep. So while our team was at SXSW in Austin, Texas last week, they asked a handful of our favorite artists in town for the festival — Lucius, Maren Morris, Holly Macve, Mt. Wolf, Timmy Thomas, A-WA, Declan McKenna and Miya Folick — to do just that. They brought the songs. We brought cameras and microphones. Here are some quiet lullabies performed in hotel rooms, courtyards and by a creek to sing you to sleep.
