Nashville indie folk trio Towne will be making its Azalea City debut in the OGD. Steevie Steeves and Jon Decious serve as the foundation of this project. Steeves established her reputation with performances in the Pittsburgh cover band scene and on the riverboat Gateway Clipper. Decious made a name for himself as the bassist for the punk rock outfit The Pink Spiders. Even though they come from different musical backgrounds, both established a love for songwriting at an early age. Eventually, fate and Skip Ewing’s Horse & Writer seminar in Wyoming brought them together. The duo brought guitarist Luke Marshall into the fold after meeting him at a Kentucky 4-H music seminar.
Towne will be giving Callaghan’s patrons a live taste of the band’s debut full-length, “In the In Between.” The group joined Grammy-winning producer Mitch Dane (The Blind Boys of Alabama, Jars of Clay) at his studio Sputnik Sound to lay down tracks for this release.
The band has given the public a preview of this album in the form of two singles that showcase their versatile mix of folk, country, rock and pop. “Broken Together” uses Marshall’s alt. rock guitar tones to lead into a mix of Steeves’ and Decious’ folk harmonies and modern country goodness. Towne also provides a new context for the Steppenwolf classic “Born to be Wild.” The group transformed this driving rock classic into an emotional modern Americana ballad.
