The husband and wife duo, Meet The Seavers (MTS), shatters the illusion that Nashville Tennessee is only about country music.
Often performing with just Upright Bass, Theremin and vocals, their music is a potent concoction of swing, odd time signatures and unusual chord changes wrapped around an ingenious lyric.
The Nashville Scene calls MTS “The Closest thing Nashville has to Vaudeville“.
MTS also host and produce their own Television Show which airs several times a week on local Nashville Television, the surrounding region and several states across the U.S.A.
Dorothy, an accomplished model, actress (and now award-winning bikini body-builder) comes from a small town in Mississippi where railroad tracks historically separated the white side of town from the black side. Growing up, Dorothy was an overall wearing Tomboy who lettered in basketball and track. At the same time, she was the Prom Queen at her high school and graduated second in her class.
Jace grew up on the eastern shore of Wisconsin in the small town of Manitowoc. He moved to Chicago in the early 80’s and for several years played bass for a large black gospel choir. Jace wrote lyrics for a sub label of island records before eventually moving to Nashville in the early 90’s.
Even though they were both rejected by the dating website E Harmony, (who could not find either of them a match) they still managed to find each other and fall in love.
Jace, recognizing Dorothy’s talent and presence onstage, encouraged her to pursue singing through a vocal coach. The two soon began performing with only upright bass and vocals at Nashville songwriter venues. “People didn’t know what to think of us. Rooms became really quiet when we played. We didn’t fit in. We weren’t Country, Jazz, Americana or Pop, but we are having so much fun together we keep at it.” Says Dorothy.
