Press Release Body = Stephen Flatt, great-nephew of Country Music\'s own esteemed
Lester Flatt (Flatt & Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys), began composing Country
and Americana music in his early teens. Through the insight and support of his own
family and their rich musical heritage, the young songwriter quickly grasped the
concept of utilizing tightly knit harmonies and perceptive lyrics to portray his own
stories and ideas. During his school years in Tennessee, Flatt was introduced to
vocalist and writer Shane Alvis. The two immediately found common ground, both in
youthful experience and unrestrained talent; the duo began honing their vocal
harmonies into a flawless weave by focusing on Alvis\' effortlessly precise southern
gospel choir voice. This fiery initial union would eventually lead them onto the
world\'s stage. By the time young Stephen Flatt and Shane Alvis entered college, the
two had collectively written an entire catalogue of original music and were
regularly performing in front of thousands of captivated and awestruck listeners;
the duo promptly collected a vast and dedicated following of friends and fans alike.
The harmony of Flatt & Alvis\' music radiates with the soulful presence of America\'s
youth and encompasses a sound and charisma not witnessed in decades. The duo
similarly combine the lyrical prowess and soul of artists such as John Mellencamp
and Robert Plant, with the skillfully refined harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel and
The Louvin Brothers; all of this enveloped within two tall and handsome young men
poised as the prodigy of a distinguished era in American Music.
