"MOTHER LEGACY @ 5pm on patio"

Beautiful weather, Fireball, and Mother Legacy was all that was needed Friday night (6/4) to rock the patio of MadLife Stage & Studios in Woodstock! Opening with “Only The Lonely”, Steve was on it – and Shay told him he just turned a 4-minute song into a two-minute song! “Slow down!” Got to love these two! Shay Collins and Steve Seidler were joined by “the wizard of Larz”, Larz Hanson. He always adds an extra exquisite guitar element to every song they play.

Again displaying their versatility, the songs they covered touched every genre, and all beyond exception! “Burning House” – one of my favorites they perform – is a harmonizing masterpiece! You’ll love their version! “Colder Weather “, “Thunder Only Happens When it Rains”, “Landslide”, “Dust in the Wind”, “Rocket Man”, “Shallow”, “Zombie”, “White Rabbit” we’re just a few of the songs they did to perfection!

I have to praise Shay’s voice when she does Janis Joplin songs. Steve joined her in harmony on “Mercedes Benz” then “Me and Bobby McGee” is another staple in their repertoire that is always requested! Not everyone can do Janis songs with justice, but this lady can!

If original music is what you’re looking for, they got that too! All just as good as any covers they do – maybe better! “Blame it on the Rain”, “Worth a Shot” and “Go Find Yourself”, are three of their many originals that are always crowd-pleasers! “Go Find Yourself” is also the title of their CD that you’d be well advised to check out!

Shay and Steve met 16 years ago and it was destiny! Their hearts blending as perfectly as their voices and musical style creating that gift of music that people are drawn to, and flock to, thus you have “mother flockers” that pack out the venues.

As I was sitting there enjoying the evening, I noticed a couple with a small child in a stroller walk by. The child was watching as Shay performed and was “stroller dancing” as they passed! I thought that was adorable!

Mother Legacy will be at Madlife again on Father’s Day which is June 20th. Don’t miss it!

"Mother Legacy offering no apologies...."

They are wild, frenzied, crazy, and soulful. Think of them as if in a time swap from the 60 and 70s. Picture Janis Joplin and Moe Bandy having children or being resurrected to a stage in 2018! Now you see Mother Legacy and they strut the stage as Shay Collins and Steven Seidler offering no apologies, what you see is what you get! - Cleveland Live Food Arts Music

Shay Collins IS Mother Legacy. Many don’t know that Shay came into this world through music, as her mother, Sue was a popular club singer in Taipei, Taiwan.

They met June 2005 doing karaoke in Chattanooga Tn. Together they did a year mission of taking care of struggling children and moved all over the United States. Blessed with a miracle daughter in 2008. After trials and tribulations they finally had their wedding in Sept 2016. Shays mother got ordained to officiate, her stepfather of 38 yrs & her biological father were there. They sang Faithfully by JOURNEY as thier vows.
THAT was the first moment that the family ever heard them sing together.
Shay lost both her fathers that following year to cancer, their last wishes, because of that wedding song, was for them to go out & perform. They quickly set out just to do a few small free shows to honor them. These performances led to many many bookings.Neither dreamed of music being their primary way of life. In 2018 they produced their 1st original music, CD "MOTHER LEGACY Go Find Yourself" with CD sell outs weekly & available on all online platforms.
