Some of our favorite performers come out of East Nashville – Since wowing the audience at last spring’s East Nashville review show with Last Train Home, Kevin Gordon and Stephen Simmons have tour this country & Europe to enthusiastic crowds.

Stephen Simmons was raised in the small town of Woodbury, Tennessee. His mother was a schoolteacher and his father held a factory job. In his family, they were the first generation that didn’t work the farm. As a songwriter, Stephen’s vision has grown to entail more than just reflections of rural America. The songs on his recordings, deal with existential realities that are familiar to country and city dwellers alike: redemption, heartbreak, hangovers and the loneliness of the road. Stephen’s records, The Superstore, Last Call, Drink Ring Jesus, Something In Between, The Blame’s On U.S., Girls and Live at Blue Highways (which were compared to everyone from Johnny Cash to Ryan Adams) combine virtuosic songcraft and musicianship with unparalleled artistic honesty.

Over the course of twenty years of writing, recording and touring, Kevin Gordon has built an impressively consistent catalog of songs, a criticallyacclaimed stack of albums, and a reputation for dynamic live performances that make first-time listeners life-long fans. Gordon’s songs have been recorded by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, Levon Helm of The Band, Ronnie Hawkins, Kate Campbell, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, and others. The title track from his Down to the Well CD, a duet with Grammy-winner Lucinda Williams, was featured on two prominent compilations: the 2001 Oxford AmericanSouthern Music Sampler, and No Depression: What It Sounds like, Volume 1, released by Dualtone in 2004.
