WFMC Jams - in the house at the grinder

Travis Bigwood is 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.

Jamie began playing guitar at the age of 13 and like his Grandfather soon was making music on stage. Jamie began playing a snare and hi hat in church along side Ray Thompson from Mobile Alabama and developed that itch that all musicians get! By the time he turned 19 Jamie was playing locally in Mobile at local clubs like Austin's Country Palace, The Wild Wild West, other venues around the south. It wasn't long Jamie was packing his bags and heading north to Nashville where he spent the next 19 years developing his style, his voice, and his writing skills. Jamie shared a stage with greats like Steve Cropper, Jerry Waddell, Blind Mississippi Morris, Mark Collie, Terry Lee Burns, and Steve Saunders. All these talented individuals shared their love for music with Jamie and helped him build a solid foundation that will carry him through the rest of his career. So, if you love music, real honest music, with heartfelt lyrics, just take a listen and you will hear the difference.
We welcome Jamie back to Grinder House every chance we get! Look for some future dates for a possible Saturday Smokin' on the Plateau series.

Brent Burns was born in Oklahoma, raised in Arizona and arrived in Gulf Shores, Alabama in 1972. This son of the desert has become the poet laureate of the beach. In 2006, Burns was named “Official Music Ambassador of the Alabama Gulf Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau.” In 2008, Burns won three awards in the first ever Trop Rock Music Awards. Burns won “Entertainer of the Year,” “CD of the Year (for “Ragtops and Flip Flops”)” and a special WAVE award for his charitable work. 2010 brought more Trop Rock Music awards, CD and Song of the Year for “I’ve Got A Beach in My Backyard” and Songwriter of the Year. In 2011 he added two more awards - Songwriter of the Year and Entertainer of the Year! 2012 brought awards for CD and Song of the Year for "Don't Come Knockin' If The Tiki Hut's Rockin'."
Burns was all over the national scene with his songs and videos, “Pain At The Pump” and “Drill, Drill, Drill.” After the videos were posted on You Tube, CNN interviewed Burns and used “Pain At The Pump” in their special “4 Bucks! What’s Next? America’s Fuel Crisis.” When the BP oil spill struck his beloved Gulf Coast in April 2010, Burns took the oil giant to task with his song, “Drill, Drill, Drill.” The song and video were featured on CNN’s Headline News. Burns first tapped into the American public’s anger over rising fuel costs in response to the oil shortages of the 1970s and 80s. Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food.” The song sold 200,000 copies the day it was released and climbed the Billboard Charts after radio commentator Paul Harvey played it three times. It is the first and only song ever played in Harvey’s nearly 50 years of radio broadcasting.
Burns’ fame continued with appearances on Real People, The Mike Douglas Show, and Hee-Haw. Burns was featured on the front page of the Sunday New York Times Entertainment Section, as well as in articles appearing in the Chicago Tribune, LA Times, Arizona Republic, Newsweek, US Magazine, and Billboard Magazine. Besides his Top 40 hit, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” Burns has had five other nationally charted records.
A twice wounded, Purple Heart winning combat veteran, Burns also has the distinction of being the first American entertainer to perform for troops overseas after the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Burns’ musical career has taken him to Italy, Australia, Mexico and coast to coast in the US.
Burns’ philanthropic projects have continued throughout the years. A portion of his CD sales goes to charities including the American Cancer Society, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and Habitat for Humanity. Burns’ Habitat tribute song, “Build Them A House,” is available for free download on his web site, www.brentburns.com.
Brent’s impressive CD sales and songwriting skills continue to make him a highly sought after artist and performer. His schedule includes over 200 dates a year at corporate events, concerts, festivals and clubs.

Steevie Steeves and Jon Decious return to the Grinder House Stage for the ???th time. We love them so much that we've lost count...Great SHOW to kick off the Memorial Day weekend!!
Nashville, Tennessee-based indie-folk trio TOWNE consists of longtime singer/songwriter collaborators Steevie Steeves, Jon Decious and guitarist Luke Marshall. Like Steeves, who cut her teeth singing in Pittsburgh’s riverboat and cover band scene, Decious spent the years prior pursuing a career in songwriting, leaning on his poetically simple, “Kentucky talk”, style of writing to land songs on albums of up-and-coming roots and Americana artists such as; Caitlin Rose, Anderson East, and most recently, Lucette. Inspired by the likes of everyone from; Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, Heart, The Killers, and the perfectly imperfect harmonies of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty, the two set out as an acoustic duo for years. Eventually, landing slots on The Pilgrimage Festival, Master Musician’s Festival, 30AFest, performing alongside artists such as; Willie Nelson, Travis Meadows, and Eddie Vedder, among others. The pair released two EP’s: 2016’s Games We Play, and 2018’s Audacious (which included the single “Camouflage” that placed 2nd in the International Songwriting Competition), before meeting guitarist, Luke Marshall, while guest-speaking at a Kentucky 4-H music seminar. Marshall, along with his Johnny Marr-meets-Nels Cline-inspired playing, proved to be the missing link for the duo that had been forever in search of “that sound”.

Beat Atlanta Online Magazine (After seeing Mother Legacy at Madlife in Woodstock, GA):
Where do I start? These 2 blend as one in harmony in every aspect of the word! They play off each other’s energy in a perfect “yin/yang” kind of way. Shay Collins and “Just” Steve quite often make the drive to Woodstock, GA from Chattanooga, TN to perform on the patio at Madlife. They may need a bigger patio! It was packed! People from across the street were cheering and clapping!
From the first song,”Burning House” and that incredible harmony, to several of their originals, “Blame it on the Rain”, “Guess”, “Good Kind of Hurt”, and others... that patio was spilling over into the parking lot! When these 2 are on the stage, you can’t help but listen. People flock to them.. hence, “Mother Flockers!”
They will be on the patio at Madlife every first Tuesday of the month for bike night. If you come see them once, you’ll be back! And that little issue of keys getting locked inside their van along with many of the things they needed to do their show, was no match for Mother Legacy! The show must go on.. and it did! And it was phenomenal!

"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.

Eric Ryan was born outside Orlando, Florida. At a very young age his family of five moved to Unionville, VA. and returned to Florida years later. He first started playing with the idea of guitar at Twelve years of age, but didn’t apply himself to learn it until four years later. "I learned to play on my Father's old Yamaha acoustic. “I love playing guitar, don't get me wrong; I just found myself focusing more on singing and performing. It wasn't until nine-teen that I even began to attempt to write a song." Eric's Mother (a pianist and amateur songwriter herself) would later fuel Ryan’s passion for story-driven music.
Currently based in Clarksville, TN. (just Northwest of Nashville) “Eric Ryan encompasses his own hybrid of Country Music” (Stereostickman.com) and spent the last two years touring up and down Florida putting in over 320 shows in two years! "I suppose the way I found my sound is no different then most, I drew off influences by every artist I had ever loved listening to... well, that and many years of writing and playing live shows... music tends to evolve along those lines. Hell, I’m still dialing it in."
Ryan was a former Top 20 National Finalist on the hit TV series 'Nashville Star' pilot in 2003 with Country Music heavyweight Miranda Lambert. It seems Eric’s primary goal is to connect with the audience. "My job is to tell stories, but you have to tell those stories correctly, you have to deliver them with power and passion. We as entertainers owe country music fans that at the very least! The fans are the people that literally give us our dreams! I have to find a way to perform a song that will reach that person(s) out there that needs those words the most in that moment. It’s surprising how strongly the right song at the right time can change the course of a person's entire life. It's never enough to just sing a song ya know?" Eric Ryan gained a major sponsor in 2018 via *Larrivee Guitars and within a very short time since moving to Nashville he has managed to land two more! Westone Audio, one of the world’s leading IEM (In Ear monitoring) companies and G7th Capos, a company that has revolutionized how guitar capos are made and how they function. Add to that a few endorments and to be honest even I’m wondering how he did all this so quickly. It is also worth noting that Eric has no manager, no agent, no web master, no graphic artist and no social media handlers, it’s all him. Seriously Eric, when do you sleep man?!
"Eric Ryan is an established and dedicated country music singer/songwriter based in the U.S. His music offers audiences a captivating array of heartfelt stories from various viewpoints, always beautifully written and performed." - StereoStickman.com
Eric Ryan has done opening performances for such amazing artists as: Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Chad Brock, Rhett Akins, Dierks Bentley, Mongomery Gentry, Charlie Daniels, Chris Cagle, Edwin McCain and Joe Diffie.
"Thank you all so much for taking the time to listen." -ER
