Stacey Blood hails from Fort Worth, TX and bucked the cliché of rock ‘n’ roller-turns-broadcaster by paying his dues as a commercial drive-time broadcaster until 27. After leaving radio, Stacey moved to the Nashville area to dedicate more time to his own ventures, starting Sticky Floor Media in 2009.
Laurie Ann Layne, from Queens, NY, spent her early years performing and singing for many projects, including recording background vocals on Motown’s India Arie’s Grammy-nominated ‘Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationships’ in 2006.
Blood and Layne met in Nashville in 2011, moved in together and co-founded The Bloody Nerve in February 2013. Their first record was the 3-track EP, ‘Red’. A second 3-track EP, ‘Blue’, quickly followed. Their first LP Taste, which featured their song “Find Ya Love”, was released in July of 2015.
