Blending country, pop, rock and soul, the duo known as Towne have released their new music video for their single “The One I Love”, taken from their debut EP, Games We Play, released earlier this year.
With Games We Play, TOWNE’s debut EP, the band displays their unique sound, mixing homegrown sentiment and iconic 60’s influences like Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor and Carole King, with dive bar rock ‘n’ roll. Nashville Music Guide recently praised the EP saying, “Games We Play takes you on a masterfully narrated walk through the emotions of love, life, loss and everything in between”, while Music Row called their single, “Runnin’ Into You”, a “sterling showcase for Steevie’s effervescent soprano and the team’s skill at crafting pristine, bopping pop”. Fans can now stream Games We Play on Spotify or purchase it on iTunes.
TOWNE consists of Pennsylvania-bred, music theater geek Steevie Steeves and straight-from-Kentucky, former The Pink Spiders-bassist, 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 Nashville, 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 organic blend of their soulful edge with Americana southern roots makes their music unlike anything else currently in the scene. The result of Steevie and Jon’s musical fate 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.”
