"ONE OF NASHVILLE'S MOST BRILLIANT..." - NASHVILLE MUSIC GUIDE
Vocals, Guitar / Jon Decious
Vocals / Steevie Steeves
Diverse backgrounds in life and music could have taken Towne’s Steevie Steeves and Jon Decious in two very different directions. Instead, their love of songwriting allowed for their paths to cross. “Jon was a breath of fresh air. We were two peas in a pod. We’re really fortunate to have developed the friendship we have. We definitely have each other’s backs,” says Steeves. Their stylistic collision has resulted in Towne’s unconventional sound - demonstrated in the duo’s upcoming releases. “His punk country mixed with my pop soulness is a very interesting dynamic, and it is what it is. It’s definitely different.”

Mike Mattison and Paul Olsen invented Scrapomatic in 1999 in an effort to separate the blues from anything edifying and preserve its impurities. Their shambolic, uplifting blues songcraft spans four studio albums and almost twenty years of hell-for-leather touring.
Mattison and Olsen met at a P-Funk concert in Minneapolis in 1993. They formed a funk band and soon racked up a Minnesota Music Award nomination. Inevitably, in 1996, they trucked their bleak Midwestern humor to New York. On a spring evening in 1999, after appropriating a National tri-cone resonator guitar and accidentally drinking from a santeria candle, Scrapomatic emerged almost fully-formed.
Mattison moonlights as a singer and songwriter for the Tedeschi Trucks Band, which he joined after eight years of lead-singing for the Derek Trucks Band. Between the two groups he has recorded nine albums, collected two Grammy Awards for Best Blues Album, six Blues Music Awards (formerly the W.C. Handy Awards) and two Canadian Maple Blues Awards. His compositions “Midnight In Harlem” and “Bound For Glory” are mainstays of the TTB repertoire.
Paul Olsen is an ASCAP Award-winning songwriter whose compositions are the bedrock of the Scrapomatic catalogue. He has written and co-written songs for albums by Susan Tedeschi, Amy Helm and Kristina Train.
Dave Yoke brought his uncanny Alabama guitar stylings to the group in 2005 and went on to succeed Olsen in the Susan Tedeschi Band, eventually putting in a five-year hitch with the great Dr. John.
Scrapomatic have made their mark on the national scene performing with the Blind Boys of Alabama, Al Green, Steve Earle, Chocolate Genius, Sharon Jones, James Hunter, etc. etc. As for the rest of the story-... Hell, you’ve got a computer. Google ‘em.

SkynFolks was formed as a result of some very devoted musicians who wanted to bring a little more to the game than what they’d seen from Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Bands. They also knew how discriminating and tough real Skynyrd fans can be so they set their performance bar high……really high.

A folk songwriter out of Nashville, TN. Originally from Monroe, CT, he started playing his songs at bars when he was young. After winning the 2017 Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition, he released his debut record Bad Parts EP.
The momentum allowed him to tour around the country consistently since then. Armed with a batch of deep, poetic songs and a striking stage presence, Chris seems like a man hellbent on the truth; “..the places most would rather stay away from” he says. “I like real stories more than I like parables.
Things that are a little uglier and maybe don’t give you all the answers.” He has recently shared the stage with folk troubadours like Joe Ely and Jonathan Byrd. This summer, Chris will be playing shows in Texas, Colorado, Nashville and up and down the east coast.
“One of my favorite songwriters in town. Chris is a rather unassuming guy but his songs will blow you away.” - Ear to the Ground
