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”.

In late 2018, the trio caught the eye of Grammy Award Winning producer, Mitch Dane, while playing a show at a bar on a slow Sunday night in Nashville. Long story short: it was meant to be. TOWNE was looking for a producer that could capture their live sound on tape and Mitch was looking for a band with a live sound the he wanted to capture. Soon after, sessions were booked at Mitch’s Nashville studio, Sputnik Sound.

In early 2019, TOWNE’s fans came together, organizing two fundraising concerts to finance the recording of the band’s first full-length album, “In The In Between”. The album is set for release in August of 2019.

2007 as part of the trio, High Maintenance, playing covers in venues on the Eastern Shore. After a couple of
years, she started playing solo and recorded her first full-length original album self titled, “ALESI,” in 2008.

Her second album, “House Of Stones,” takes the listener on a journey from thunderous drums and stunning string arrangements, to the beautiful simplicity of soulful vocals and acoustic guitar.

Nashville based multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Eric Coomer has built a name for himself as a talented musician, singer, and songwriter as both a solo artist and as lead singer for the band Knapsackheroes.

Southern roots run deep in Lee Gibson’s veins and you see that on stage when he performs. Raised in the small town of Winchester, Tennessee, gave Gibson the humbleness that comes across on stage and his love for country music. As a child Lee enjoyed sitting in front of the television or radio listening to some of the greatest artists of our time, such as Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard and George Jones. Music started at a young age with Lee Gibson as he was part of the musicals and plays in his school, a member of the church choir, and he also had an acoustic show which he eventually added a full band to.

Gibson carries some of the songs from his country icons on stage as his songs tell the story of lost loves, hardships, falling in love and there are always the good drinking songs that have made history in country music. “Who You Are”, “Long Slow Night”, “My Country” and “Lincoln County Lightning” are just a few of the originals Lee Gibson performs at his shows. All of these songs telling stories that his audience can relate to.

Being compared to Dwight Yoakam and Ronnie Dunn Lee Gibson’s voice is powerful, clear and definitely country. With his influence, from these artists and so many more, Gibson pursued writing with some of the top Nashville songwriters. In 2001 he landed his first record deal and this put him on the stage with Randy Houser, Anthony Smith, Darryl Worley, T. Graham Brown, and even the late George Jones.

There is still uniqueness in his songwriting with the upcoming release of his sophomore album. You hear a collection of all of Lee Gibson’s influences on this album. There is love and heartbreak, happiness and despair, the jovial and serious and an album showing Lee Gibson’s talent and love of music.

As Lee Gibson steps on stage he does so with the experience he has gained over the years of working in the music business. His 6 foot 4 inch stature carries the deep richness in his voice as he sings to his audiences. His songs tell stories about who he is and some of the things he has experienced, as well as some classic country and rock and roll to get everyone up and out of their seats dancing. Gibson reaches out to his audiences and they love him as he makes time for them after a show.

This will be an exciting year for Lee Gibson. In November Gibson will be part of the An American Legacy Tour, starring Ronnie McDowell. A cruise is planned that will depart on the Carnival Fascination from Jacksonville, FL to the Bahamas, November 12 through November 15. Several other projects are in the works for Gibson and he is looking forward to this year and where his career is going.

As you walk into the venue you look on stage and Lee Gibson is performing. His voice carries through the sound system and you know you are about to see a great country singer on stage. His experience and talent shows through and the friendliness in his voice welcomes you to a seat. This is a Lee Gibson show. Quality, talent and pure country.
