One Way Left
One Way Left was the creation of Eddie Hutto, Hal Axson, Blake Berkley, and Bert Solon. Each member coming from other local playing bands between Orangeburg, Columbia, and Irmo, SC the individual members wanted to put together a Top 40 Rock and Roll band to play out live around the state. Eddie Hutto and Hal Axson played together in several bands throughout the years including “Edisto River Band”, “One Way Left”, and “Slow Down Faster”, Bert Solon had played with Hal Axson in “The Crawl” from Columbia, SC and Blake Berkley played with Hal Axson in “3-D Monday” and he played in and toured extensively with “Almost Nuts” both bands based out of Columbia, SC. After Blake and Bert left the band the remaining two members invited drummer Wes Hanna to join and they continued three piece until finally folding the project to form “Slow Down Faster” with Terry Collins. Although this project was short lived it formed the basis for other projects and merits it’s place as a stepping stone to other bands in the area.
