‘81 Stories is the duo to keep your eye on! Their songs are uplifting, insightful, beautifully orchestrated and impeccably delivered. They bring an excellent sense of humor and playful ribbing to their live set, too, making for a wonderful experience in concert. I expect great things from these guys!

'81 Stories was born from a friendship and musical collaboration between Jamie Chura and Justin Ferguson. They met soon after Jamie moved to Nashville, TN in 2014 and began songwriting together the following Spring. Their first co-write, "Runaway", is now the title track of their debut EP. 

The duo have been delighting crowds at clubs and festivals around Nashville for nearly 2 years, performing cruisy originals with infectious energy. '81 Stories utilizes Justin's unique cajon trap kit to create fascinating and complimentary grooves as a solid backbone to Jamie's blend of intricate guitar stylings, haunting piano structures and beautiful vocal deliveries.
