Molly Stevens and Whitney Layne formed a dynamic duo after meeting in Nashville, Tennessee in 2010. Layne, originally from the outskirts of Salt Lake City, Utah moved to Nashville in 2007 with the high hopes of breaking into the music scene. Growing up singing with her twin sisters in Utah provided Layne with an early love for music. Layne was a Western Regional Finalist for the Colgate Country Showdown in 2006. In 2007 Layne was awarded the title of Star of the West, representing the West in singing and songwriting. After a very successful solo career for three years and the release of her album “This is my Song”, Layne decided to take a chance and join forces with Stevens.
Molly Stevens grew up in Macon, Georgia with a rich heritage of music surrounding her. Sharing the city’s history with performers like the Allman Brothers, Otis Redding and Little Richard, it’s no surprise Stevens found a love for music early on. Beginning at age two, Molly began singing with her musical family on local radio and television stations. At age 11 she performed at the Billy Graham Crusade at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia. Most of Molly’s childhood and teen years were spent singing in churches and theatre stages. Stevens is a graduate of Mercer University and after graduating taught high school theatre and Humanities for four years. Stevens knew that Nashville was where she had to be to take the next step and packed her bags in May 2010.
Stevens Layne separately and together have opened for acts including Keith Anderson, Ty Herndon, Rodney Atkins, The Indigo Girls, Kellie Pickler, Josh Gracin, Lori Morgan, and Jaime Johnson.
Stevens Layne encompasses honest and raw lyrics with a soulful and pure sound. Stevens and Layne are two different people, but the core of truth, passion and deep rooted soul is found in their music together. Stevens Layne is a powerful team spitting out songs from the heart.
