Stafford Stevens~ Artist Spotlight!!!


Stafford Stevens, can be described as a modern-garage country music duo with a little bit of bluegrass in them. This two-piece band is made up of female drummer (Taryn Stevens) and male guitarist (Brett Stafford Smith). Smith is a songwriter from Alabama. Smith moved to Nashville and played the bar scene on Broadway for a couple years but wanted to be a part of something bigger than himself. When he was a playing a show one night, he met Stevens. Stevens, was a traveling nurse living in Nashville by way of Michigan. As a child she learned how to play the piano, but had never practiced drumming before meeting Smith. The two of them began to spend a lot of time together and formed a strong bond through their love of fun times, music and each other.

As their connection grew, Smith started looking for a drummer for a two-piece project he was working on. To his surprise, Stevens offered to learn how to play the drums so Smith started teaching her basics and almost directly it seemed Stevens took to the drums. Smith impulsively knew that he and Stevens had their own separate gifts of music, but together they refined a new harmonious sound. This revelation marked the start of Stafford Stevens.

This duo has played shows in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Michigan. Their debut EP “The Demo,” just came out this month. On this EP, there are songs titled “League of Your Own,” and “B.Y.O.B Weekend Party.” If you would like to find out more about the newest hot country music duo then check out their website
