WFMC Jams - in the house at the grinder
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!

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

For country duo Austin’s Rose, it was never about the ‘what’ and ‘where’. It was about the ‘how’ and ‘when’. Tim Gore and Taylor Cornilles both knew they would come to Nashville to become country music artists. But they never could have envisioned that meeting each other would forge the path to all their hopes and dreams.
Tim Gore has had music in his life for as long as he can remember. His mother was an early influence, playing guitar and singing country songs to him as a child. At the age of nine, Tim picked up the guitar and has never put it down.
Although athletics played a key role during his high school years, he never lost his desire to make and play country music. Looking back on the first two concerts of his life, Tim can still recall the impact it had on him. “The first one I attended was a Waylon show. The next one was Travis Tritt. My mind was made up. This is what I was meant to do.”
As a promise to his parents, Gore did go to college. While at the University of Kentucky, Tim continued to focus on music. He played at the Austin City Saloon, the same club that brought stars to country music like John Michael Montgomery and Montgomery Gentry. His next step would be Nashville.
Like Tim Gore, Taylor Cornilles always had music in her life. She grew up on a horse ranch in Wolf Creek, Oregon. Her mom was a traditional country singer and her father played guitar at church and in his band. Because her goal was always going to Nashville, she began preparing at a very young age. At the age of six, Taylor learned how to play the piano. At the age of nine, it was guitar. Fiddle came the next year and she took on mandolin at the age of 14.
At the age of 11, Taylor and her family put together a band and they spent the next few years playing fairs and community events. One year later, she sang an open mic event at the Bluebird Café in Nashville. “Playing the Bluebird should have been a satisfying ‘bucket list’ kind of thing for me,” recalled Taylor, “but instead it created a hunger that wouldn’t go away.” The day she graduated from high school, Taylor Cornilles moved to Nashville to become a star.
In 2014, after five years of playing on the Nashville club circuit on lower Broadway, Tim was about to give up his dream when he met Taylor. They began collaborating and found in each other what was missing musically. “Taylor’s early traditional female influences (Patty Loveless, Allison Krauss, Lee Ann Womack) combined with mine (Waylon, Tritt, Montgomery Gentry) play a key part in our sound,” explained Gore, “but it’s really our vocal blend in our harmonies that define us.”
Austin’s Rose spent the next three years doing several hundred shows and honing their unique sound. But it wasn’t until 2018, when they met and began working with producer Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum), that the musical vision came into focus. “They are both great singers in their own right,” explained Worley, “but when you put those voices together, they become something special.” When asked to explain the Austin’s Rose sound, Taylor Cornilles described it best. We take our traditional instrumentation and harmonies and balance them with a more contemporary mix. It’s the blend that makes us unique.”

Delnora grew up immersed in a rich musical environment. Her mother, Linda, was a classically trained vocalist, her father, Tim, introduced her to the best of folk, country, bluegrass and rock & roll music. “Mom plays piano,” she said. “Dad plays the guitar and mandolin. And every Reed family event was basically a celebration of the old-time tunes handed down by my Great Grandfather, Henry Reed. His tunes became the backbone of the American Folklife Collection at the Library of Congress. We all played those tunes; whether in tents by New River, or on porches in keeping with tradition. My PaPa Reed (Gene) was probably the most patient in teaching me chord progressions on the guitar. Both sides of my family gave me the musical roots to draw from and the encouragement to grow in my own artistry. They planted me in a varied and wonderful musical garden and I learned early that good music is good music, regardless of genre.”
Delnora says she can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to be a professional singer. “As a matter of fact, my parents, although encouraging, were reserved about throwing me into it as early as I wanted,” she recalled. “I was 11 years old before they allowed me to perform anywhere other than church, family or school events.”

Williams was injected with a bohemian lifestyle during a nomadic childhood. By the time he was twelve years of age, his family of four had already moved across four states and nearly ten houses from the west to the east coast. He had no idea that he was being unconsciously groomed to live the Kerouac condition one day; destined to ramble, tell stories of nature, moral ground, and singing about the great people and the multiple levels of the human experience in travel.
"My Grandparents took my sister and I from California to Hershey, PA and back a few times through the summer, and we took different routes each time to see various landmarks and plenty of gravestones of people I’d never met. Needless to say, I the desire to move around is in my blood."
Williams began living a life on the road full-time in 2012 to pursue his music. First in a Honda Element, and later a self-converted Sprinter Van, carrying everything he owned inside a 20 foot vessel with his wife for three years. The simplistic lifestyle of spending ample amounts of time in nature and meeting various characters enabled Williams to focus his writing on the evolving self and observations of his surroundings, as opposed to the over-saturated topic of love and heartbreak that have dominated airwaves for decades.
