The Damn Quails started as a weekly jam session at The Deli in Norman, Oklahoma. Looking back, the fact that the band began so organically, could be considered somewhat of a miracle. At the epicenter of these weekly jams was Bryon White and Gabe Marshall. Both had been playing music in the Oklahoma area for some time, and when these two forces collided the harmony between them was undeniable. Some would say that it is hazardous to put two guys on stage that can write, sing, and play guitar. As everyone knows, egos can get in the way. This wasn't the case with Bryon and Gabe. Their singing, songwriting, and guitar playing utilizing both electric and acoustic guitars, meld together in such a way that it's hard to tell where one starts and the other stops.
When Jason Cassidy was a kid, he wanted to be a rock star (who didn't?). But the electric guitar and lessons he got at 13 didn't take. Country music, however, did. Inspired by a buddy who could name every country tune as soon as it came on the radio, the competitive Cassidy started listening. "I totally fell in love with country music and learned every song I could," he recalls.
21 year-old Holly Tucker has accomplished a great deal in the past 8 years of beginning her career in country music, but her musical story begins even before she was born. Her parents, Johnny and Cheryl Tucker, founded a professional Christian band when they were in college called Revised Edition.
