IN THE IN BETWEEN OUT NOW!

“In The In Between” is a collection of songs written over 9 years (2011-2019) that have, for one reason or another, stood the test of time. These songs have followed us from Dubois, WY where we met in late 2010, to the Studio I & II apartment complex behind the Colonial Liquor Store on 8th Ave in Nashville. These songs followed us while we fell in and out of love with one another, and these songs were the common thread that sewed up our hearts and held us together. These songs took on a whole new life, energy, and purpose after 2 years on the road with our guitarist, Luke Marshall.

These songs have been sung in dive bars, theaters, living rooms, and everywhere in between, all over the country. They’ve been kept alive by our fans that have requested them throughout the years, somehow knowing every word even though they had never been recorded.

These songs gave us the courage to make this record. Our fans gave us the reason to and we can’t wait for the world to hear it.

This one’s for you,

Steevie & Jon & Luke

BIO
A guy, a girl and a guitar with a show unlike any other acoustic act.
Don’t let the 2pc fool you, SOFT, HARD, WILD, PRETTY…..a wide variety for everyone. Vocals unlike any you've heard. Which will knock you off your seat, harmony to make goose bumps crawl and bring tears to your eyes. Such full sound rhythm, rocking guitar playing & finger picking to have you scratching your head. Nobody can fathom how they can create so much energy and sound with a tiny simple package.
MOTHER WHO, YOU ASK?
Shay Collins IS Mother Legacy. Many don’t know that Shay came into this world through music, as her mother, Sue was a popular club singer in Taipei, Taiwan.
Shay, together with her flashy velvet vocals crooning cowboy husband Steve, have created quite an inspiring, exciting, rocking performance lighting up stages everywhere. Loveable, real, raw and honest, they are able to conquer:
big shows, private shows, loud shows, quiet shows, dance shows, dinner shows, they are diverse enough to cover all of them with a sound so unique and powerful.
Ask Shay how this all started and she will humbly tell you, she never thought she was good enough. Losing both her biological and stepfather to cancer in one year, their last words were for her to sing. Singing Journey’s “Faithfully” as their wedding vows was the first time any of the family had heard their musical magic.
Best man, best friend, brother and veteran musician, Robert Stone, decided this was going to happen and he presented Steven with a guitar.
Honoring her fathers’ wishes, they stepped out to do a few free shows for friends. Opening for Chattanooga’s top bands, The Band Antle, Aunt Betty and well known gospel/country singer/songwriter Tyson Leamon, this led to an unbelievable and overwhelming amount of bookings; and they haven’t stopped coming since.
Bringing them to today, neither dreamed of anyone wanting them to produce original music, let alone a CD but by popular demand and pressure they set out to create just that. They knew it needed to be done quickly and professionally. Beloved and admired booking manager, Rick Davis (Holly Oak Management Services) saw something in these two and decided it needed to happen now.

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jeffrey Allan Lane, mostly known simply as Jeff Lane grew up in Kingsport, Tennessee, where he began playing guitar fervently at the age of fourteen; fascinated by the invention of the “historic” MTV and the great rock guitar players of that era. From an even younger age, his musical roots were watered by his mother’s record collection that was packed full of greats like Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, The Eagles, Elton John, Jim Croce, Elvis, The Beatles, and the Commodores. Sneaking over to a neighbor’s house he learned about hot bands AC/DC, Pat Benetar, and REO Speedwagon. After forming a few high school rock bands, life took Jeff out of the public pursuit of his dream. For the next 20 years, he kept his songwriting pursuit private all while picking out the biggest influences in each generation to add to his sound. With a major economical turn of events in 2010, and the loss of Jeff’s business and his farm, an unexpected door opened that started his long-awaited musical journey. That winter collaboration began with Matthew Oakes which would quickly lead to a series of phone calls from guitarist/producer Quentin Horton wanting to record the project known as Hundred Acres. While in the studio, Hundred Acres was officially joined by Horton on lead and slide guitars, as well as guest tracks from fiddle player Kevin Jackson and former Allison Krause & Union Station guitarist Tim Stafford who was touring with Blue Highway as an award-winning guitarist. The result was Jeff’s first record “Where the Buffalo Roam” which he debuted on his 40th birthday in 2011 at his first official gig. Although nervous and clumsy on stage at first, the music brought an energy that grew quickly resulting in a second record exactly one year later called “Feels Good”. At this point, Horton who formerly experienced development in Nashville suggested that Jeff pursue his next step by experiencing songwriters in other places to find more influence and experience, replicating the journey he had taken years before. For the next few years, Lane followed the advice and began playing hundreds of open mics and songwriter rounds within a two hour (100 miles) driving radius so that he could return the same night for work the next day. His soulful and story-telling style of songwriting, along with tasteful guitar work quickly acquired notoriety as someone wanted in “good” rounds, and opened doors further away and into Nashville where he regularly appears at venues such as the world-famous Commodore. With the growth achieved by constant appearances as a songwriter, Lane has become a powerhouse that commands most rooms, bringing audiences to full attention with the sound of his soulful voice of heavily bluesy-style guitar licks on a beaten 1953 Gibson LG-1. Jeff Lane has made many appearances on indie radio stations including the famous “Blue Plate Special” WDVX in Knoxville, TN, and “Appalshop” on WMMT in Whitesburg, KY. Jeff, in addition, has performed with many A-list performers and writers over the years including Tim Stafford, Chris Knight, Kim Williams, Sean Gasaway, Benjy Gaither, Steve Williams, Aaron Barker, Keith Anderson, Lance Miller, Doug Johnson, Bobby Tomberlin, Mark Steven Jones, Randy Finchum, Lara Landon, Emily Minor, Annie Robinette, Bobby Starnes, Justin Mychals, Karen Reynolds, Mason Reed, Robby Hopkins, Mo Pitney, Bill LaBounty, Carrie Tillis, Willy “Big Eyes” Smith, Folk Soul Revival, Holly Williams, Hilary Williams, Bill DiLuigi, Lanndon Lingerfelt, Johnathan Dean, Marc-Alan Barnette, PJ Steelman, Scott Southworth, Heino Meoller, Morgan Alexander, Judy Paster and many more.

Travis Bigwood and The Lonesome Doves are an Americana Folk band from Knoxville, TN. Their songs focus storytelling. "I started writing songs because I wanted to tell a story. I wanted to share the anthology of my experiences growing up in East Tennessee and feel that connection that only music can bring. I try to capture the sound of the hardships and all the goodness that echo through these mountains."
"It’s the sound of a young man attempting to make peace with his past and coming to terms with the changes of his present — the realization that while he might not be where he was or even where he wants, that good things happen. There’s both celebration and solace in such a moment of clarity, and that Bigwood spins it into sonic gold is evidence of an artistic soul wise beyond the years of its mortal shell." - Steve Wildsmith of The Daily Times (Maryville, TN)

From performing at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café and Puckett’s to taking the stage at festivals throughout Kansas, Ohio, and Kentucky, Ava Rowland is a talent worth keeping an eye on. The contemporary country music artist cites an eclectic list of artistic inspirations ranging from Carrie Underwood to Lauren Daigle to Elvis Presley.

Her songwriting is in full evidence all over Polaroid Picture, her debut release. A great example is the heart-wrenching “My Last Words,” a song that was inspired by the tragic events that unfolded at Parkland High – and the family members left behind.

“My Dad was watching a vigil for the Parkland shooting victims. A father of victim Jamie Guttenberg was saying how he can remember the busyness of the morning and what she was wearing but he can’t remember if he told her that he loved her. Such a strong statement made me realize that we never know when it’ll be the last time, we see someone.”

The EP also contains the title track - Ava’s very first radio single - the upbeat “Polaroid Picture,” of which she says, “It’s about having someone special in your life that who is just an original, a classic…just like a Polaroid Picture.”

Ava is currently promoting her debut EP, which is produced by well-known Nashville songwriter, Britton Cameron (toured with Toby Keith, Hootie and the Blowfish, Leann Rimes). She says it was a thrill being in the studio with him. “He taught me a lot during recording. It was a truly educational experience, and I feel I am the better for it.” The instrumentation for the album was recorded at Nashville’s Keystone Studio, while the vocals were all tracked at Cameron’s home studio.

The EP is available for streaming and purchase on all major platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.

When she isn’t working on music, Ava can be found advocating “Rachel’s Challenge,” a program about anti-bullying, looking for the best in others and treating them with compassion. The organization was founded in the memory of Columbine High School shooting victim Rachel Scott. Her story is one that struck an emotional chord within her.

“I read about Rachel Scott, and found myself so much into her story, how she was compassionate to others, and how she basically died for her faith in God. It’s a program about anti-bullying, looking for the best in others and treating them with compassion. She wrote a paper and it was called, ‘My Ethics, My Codes of Life.’ She challenges the reader to go out of their way to show compassion because if one person goes out of their way, then they start a chain reaction of the same - about being kind to others.” The foundation creates programs which promote positive climates in schools, including Ohio’s Wellington School District, for which Ava raised $5,500 to bring in “Rachel’s Challenge.”

Ava enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering at her church. When at home, Ava can be found watching TV, or movies such as 8 Seconds and The Notebook. However, she’s hoping to be quite busy promoting her new music. What are her goals? She has set the bar high. “I want to be on tour and on the CMA Awards. That would be nice,” she says with boundless enthusiasm. Whatever her career path, Ava stresses she will never forget where her gifts come from. “All my blessings come from my savior Jesus Christ. I would be nothing without him.”
