When JonDecious and SteevieSteeves met for the first time in 2010 at a re- nowned songwriting retreat, Horse & Writer Retreat in Wyoming, the two did not realize they lived just a few miles apart from each other in Nashville. They formed a special bond that would set the stage for their future, both per- sonally and professionally. Upon reuniting back in Nashville after the experience of a lifetime, the eager pair began attending songwriter nights as two aspiring artists sharing a cre- ative outlet. Their bond and unified tal- ent became very clear to each of them, as well as to their listeners, and they began acquiring a fan base as a duo. Like their chance meeting, their sound, material, and even their name came about organically. Initially calling themselves the Devious Angels, they grew into Towne , as it accurately de- scribes the type of music they gener- ate together — not quite country, and not quite city, but somewhere in the middle.

He eventually decided to leave the rocker life behind and head in an- other direction. Decious proud- ly returned to his roots of coun- try music, Pleasant View, and the ever-popular Nashville music scene. “I love everything about Cheatham County,” Decious said. “After liv- ing all over the United States, it’s the only place that always felt like home. Whether it’s taking a run on the Bicen- tennial Trail, floating down the Harpeth, the tobacco barns smoking in the fall, or the people waving as you pass by — what’s not to love? It’s my kinda place.” Plan Your Visit DiscoverCheathamCounty.org

The songs are comfortable, meaningful, and “harmonious and hormonal,” ac- cording to Steeves. The songs from the EP, and others, can be heard on iTunes, Spotify, and on stage at variety of local venues like the Bluebird Cafe, summer festivals across the country, and even small, private events.
