Like Merle Haggard before him, David Allan Coe served time in prison before setting his dreams on becoming a country music star. Coe headed to Nashville in 1967 and found his first big success over five years later — as a songwriter. As a singer, his biggest hits were “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” “The Ride,” “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” “She Used to Love Me a Lot,” and “Longhaired Redneck.”

His best-known compositions are the No. 1 successes “Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)” (which was covered by Tanya Tucker) and “Take This Job and Shove It” (which was later covered by Johnny Paycheck and inspired a hit movie.) His defiant stance and love of motorbikes, multiple tattoos and ultra-long hair made him a natural ‘Nashville outlaw’, which he wrote about in the self-glorifying ‘Longhaired Redneck’ and ‘Willie, Waylon And Me.’

Coe’s musical style derives from blues, rock and country music traditions. His vocal style is described as a “throaty baritone”. His lyrical content is often humorous or comedic. Thomas Erlewine describes Coe as “a great, unashamed country singer, singing the purest honky-tonk and hardest country of his era…..He may not be the most original outlaw, but there’s none more outlaw than him.”

More than a decade ago, multi-talented singer, songwriter and guitarist, Steve Oliver burst onto the contemporary jazz scene with a sound so fresh, so positive, and bright, that he immediately became a favorite on radio stations. Oliver is renowned throughout the contemporary jazz world for his charismatic one on one relationship with the audience and a wild array of sonic delights that include soulful lead vocals, snappy guitar lines, wild vocal percussion excursion, playful "vocalese" and wonderworking with the synth guitar. He's always sprinkled a few full-on pop/R&B vocal tunes on every album. In 2016, the multi-talented singer, songwriter and guitarist released Pictures and Frames, his first ever all-vocal album. It's Oliver's first official venture into the pop format after nine albums and over 15 years of dominance on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart. Steve’s newest release, Illuminate, will be released this summer. Illuminate is the much-anticipated 11th career album from multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Steve Oliver, who returns with a record deeply rooted in contemporary jazz guitar melodies and his trademark wordless vocalese.

Marion Meadows is an internationally renowned saxophonist and composer. His first RCA release, For Lover’s Only, was a huge success followed by his ground breaking Keep it Right There album. He became a staple of the contemporary jazz format with his subsequent recordings, which include Body Rhythm, Players Club, Dressed To Chill, Secrets, Whisper, and his current release, Soul Traveler. Join us for an evening of smooth jazz at its best in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.
