Today I feature Towne for the first time, with the brilliant ‘The One I Love’. It’s always fantastic to hear a great new song from a new artist, but when it comes with a video as good as this, it’s even better – I knew I’d be featuring it within a minute of seeing it.
The story behind Towne is a very interesting one – the following extract taken from the duo’s excellent website:
‘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.’
This song is the third track on their debut EP ‘Games We Play’ and I have to say the entire EP simply excellent – these guys work brilliantly together, the guitar work is fantastic and I just love both of their voices, Steevie taking lead vocals on the first four tracks (the first song ‘Runnin’ into You’ really shows off her vocals) and Jon in the final song.
