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.
