The music of The Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana,” and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. This acoustic duo is known for their well-crafted and award-winning songs, top-notch lead singing, and fine harmonies. They have performed at nationally recognized venues such as Uncle Calvin’s in Dallas, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, and the Bluebird Café in Nashville. They have opened for Joe Ely, Claire Lynch, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Carrie Newcomer, and Kim & Reggie Harris.
MaryBeth Zamer has sung professionally since the age of 18. Before moving to Nashville, she was a fixture of the local music scene in the Washington, D.C. area, where she fronted a popular bar band for several years. MaryBeth toured Europe, worked as a guest artist with several other bands, and sang background vocals for the band, Method Actor featuring Eva Cassidy. After relocating to Nashville, MaryBeth continued her musical career working as a demo singer for local songwriters, as a background vocalist for several new country artists, and working on her own projects, including serving as lead vocalist for the band Blue Martini. She now sings lead vocals for The Twangtown Paramours.
Mike T. Lewis has played guitar for a million and a half years, and bass for about half that long. He sometimes tours with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, playing upright bass. In 1997, Mike had a #1 pop hit in South Korea on Yang Pa’s first album called a “A Heartbeat Away”. It sold over 800,000 units. In April 2014, Mike signed an administrative publishing deal with Universal for all their Asian territories. More of his songs are presently being recorded by Korean artists for release later this year. He has also had songs recorded by independent artists in the U.K., Japan, and the U.S. Since 2000, Mike has owned and operated a studio in Nashville, producing albums and demos for up and coming performers. Mike has also played background acting roles of songwriter, studio engineer, and roadie on ABC’s “Nashville”.
