Zach + Cheyloe
Country, Alt-Country, Singer/songwriters, Acoustic from Birmingham AL

Zach Austin and Cheyloe Martin

We're Zach + Cheyloe from Birmingham, AL. We've loved music since we were very young and now as adults we enjoy making it even more. Our voices and our songwriting are both very unique and different, yet they come together like two puzzle pieces. We aim to be not just songwriters but storytellers also. Simple and direct, we rarely, if ever, stray into the abstract or the realm of music you "just have to get." We want you to know that whatever lonesome trail you're traveling, we've been there too, friend. And we have the dust on our boots and the songs in our souls to prove it.

We've been teamed up since early 2013, Cheyloe having previously been a solo artist and Zach the creative lead/singer of Calling Station. We're only two people but we have the time of our lives playing together and creating a ruckus in general and we hope that you'll come along with us.

We regularly participate in the Bluebird Cafe's (Nashville) Sunday Night Writers nights, having passed the audition in 2012. We were the winners of the 1st and 2nd ASPA Singer Songwriter competition; 1 of the 50 chosen from 2,000+ artists to compete in the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam Southern Original contest. 2nd Place in WorkPlay's Singer/Songwriter Series contest. Most recently we are the Summer 2014 winners of Moonlight on the Mountain Grand Open Mic Playoff contest. We won the local portion of the Texaco Country Showdown in May and will be competing at State this October.

Philos Moore
Guitar Player from Birmingham AL

"His name is Philos Moore, but you could refer to him as Chris Suda. He’s a singer-songwriter, but that hasn’t always been the case. Currently in a two piece instrumental band called Probably The Tornado with his best friend Michael Pocus, Philos decided it was time to try something different. In his own words, “I was listening to a Bob Dylan song called Only A Pawn In Their Game, and something just fired off in my brain. “The emotion he threw at the microphone in that song blew my mind, and I wanted to do something like that.” In the past year, he’s done his best to write a song everyday, taking inspiration from Woody Guthrie. Some songs are topical, most are personal, and the rest can’t quite be labeled as one thing or another."
-UAB Kaleidoscope — Britty Reese, UAB Kaleidoscope
A mix of country, rock, pop, and folk from Nashville TN

This Nashville-based powerhouse duo consists of Pennsylvania bred, music theater geek Steevie Steeves and straight-from-Kentucky, former bassist for punk-rock band, The Pink Spiders, Jon Decious. The two talents unexpectedly crossed paths at Skip Ewing's Horse and Writer Seminar in Wyoming where they immediately connected musically. Not long after they met, they realized they both lived behind the liquor store on 8th in the heart of Music City, yet they had to travel thousands of miles to find out they were meant to make music together.

When they began writing together, TOWNE's sound started taking shape. The power and passion behind their harmonies and lyrics was incomparable to anything they had experienced as musicians. Although Steeves and Decious have traveled two different paths, the forks in their roads eventually had them heading in the same direction.

Both Steevie and Jon grew up in small towns where the radio was their only refuge. Music gave them the escape they were yearning for.

Steevie started writing songs at 10 years old and became highly involved in opera and musical theater. In her world, life was a musical and the classroom was her stage. She later switched gears to singing in classic rock cover bands, as well as performing R&B and Jazz shows on the Pittsburgh river boat, the Gateway Clipper, before moving to Nashville at 22.

Jon and his family made the move to the city from the houseboat capital of the world when he was 14. Soon after, Jon began writing songs and started immersing himself in music any way he could find. His talent was showcased when he traveled the world for nine years with the punk-rock group, The Pink Spiders (Geffen Records). Jon recently got a cut with What A Woman Wants To Hear on Anderson East's debut album, Delilah, produced by Dave Cobb, and on Caitlyn Rose's debut album, Own Side Now called Comin' Up.The pair has finished the recording of their debut EP, Games We Play. This project came to life with the help of producer Evan Hutchings (Joey + Rory) who also doubles on the drums, Rob McNelly (Kacey Musgraves, Parmalee) who lends his guitar skills on the EP, and Chris Gelbuda, who produced Meghan Trainor's "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," and co-wrote "All About Us" and "The Rest" with Steeves and Decious.

Their unique sound mixes homegrown sentiment with dive bar rock-n-roll. The organic blend of their soulful edge with Americana southern roots makes them extremely unique. The iconic 60's influences of Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, and Carole King shine through their voices in every performance. Steevie and Jon's musical fate finally caught up to them, and the result is both enchanting and wicked; in the words of Decious, "You can outgrow your boots, but you can't outrun your boots, or at least that's what I think they say."
