After a chance meeting with Roy Acuff, Stevie (then, a young man) was certain he would always be a musician. Georgia born relation of the legendary fiddler Clayton McMichen, Stevie immersed himself in the world of rock and the underground music scene of the 80s in Atlanta but never lost the twang of his childhood. Almost three decades later, he has become an accomplished performer and songwriter and guitarist as well as a seminal part of the Atlanta and Austin Music Scenes. He now hangs his hat in Western North Carolina.
Stevie has now released five solo albums and half a dozen music videos, besides his published works with his 1980s swamp swampabilly band, The Tombstones.
The Tombstones song” Nobody” was became a college radio anthem and was later recorded by rock icon Stiv Bator. His debut full length release 730 AM received great reviews and airplay besides offering tracks that peaked on the Satellite Radio charts and featuring performances by members of Wilco, Jason and the Scorchers, The Bad Livers and the Georgia Satellites.
After several comps and EPs, his 2011 Release Greenwood reintroduced Stevie to the Americana and folk listeners with his autobiographical tale about his journey to Greenwood to mark the grave of then unhonored Robert Johnson.
Tombstone is coming to perform an intimate, family-style show on Saturday, June 15 at 6 p.m. at the Far Flung Farm, located at 3142 Beaverdam Road in Canton.
