Music is powerful tool that CAN and WILL change the WORLD! Yes this new EP will be going to Spotify, iTunes, and all the other major online places for music in the next few weeks. And you can get it before everyone else right from my website. It's just 9.99 and you can contribute more if you feel lead to.
I wanted to share the story behind this new music. When the tragic events first happened in Minneapolis I took right way to the pen and my guitar and started writing what would be the title track. The Human Race came out of an inquiry in to how little I actually know about Racism. I discovered it's a concept for me.
And I saw some of my fiends NOT OF COLOR posting on FB like they were experts on this subject. I thought to my self "what do I actually know about racism?' What I discovered I thought I knew some things and how little I actually know about this subject as well. Very humbling discovery.
The first line I had was 'What if we could see each other though the eyes of grace, after all we're just one human race...' This is both a question and a statement. This began a real inquiry into what it might be like for a person of color to grow up in the world today, And in a country built on freedom what does that even actually look like?
Well, one song soon became two and then became eight. This EP is also an exploration in a new sound I'm creating. Exploring new guitar tones and exploring my voice and lyric writing. This has been an awesome experience. I've been working with an engineer I met in TN.
When you really get to the heart of all this. We are all one human race, WE are The Human Race. No one else is coming. It's time for US to make the difference in the ways we can. Anywhere you go around the world you will find human beings who desire to be loved, respected, treated with dignity, and people who want to make a difference in areas of life that matter to them.
I love you all. Thank you for your support of my music all these years. It's truly a blessing...
It's getting very exciting around here! This came in from TinderBox who is handing my radio promo for my new compilation "It's Time." I'm honored to be working with these guys. They have made many artists careers before. PINK and Johnny Lang to name a few. Don't for get about our contest. Take a picture of my music on the radio during Dec 10 and the end of February and tag me in it. We're giving away some cool stuff including a limited addition Drew Davidsen BOX SET which will include a Signed Copy if "It's Time."
We had a great time in Atlanta Performing at Eddies Attic. Here is some footage from our show. I have to personally thank Mz Drummer for putting this stellar group of musicians together for me. They did an amazing job and are now inducted nto my new band. Look for our next performance coming very soon. The maiden voyage was a huge success. Don't forget the only way to get my new CD It's Time is at live shows. Next up for me I'm traveling to MD to do a show with Alexa Givens. I wrote and arranged songs on her new EP Back To You. I played guitar on it as well. Hope to see you on the road. D
I'm enjoying living in TN. Nashville is a great town filled with so many great people. And so many great song writers as well as well as other industry people. The other night I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with Alex Heiche founder of www.soundroyalties.com a company that works with artists to ensure we get everything we are supposed to get. His company is very innovative. The best part is how BIG his heart for artists and creative people is. There were some very cool artists who dropped by too. Including a former bass player from the band Arrested Development. Remember that group? What a blast from the past. Anyhow I'm getting closer to the release of FLASHBACK SEVENTEEN. We are working out the radio promo and distribution channels. I'm praying in the nest 2 weeks we can nail this down.
I'm so excited to have been inducted into the Maryland Entertainment Hall Of Fame! There were so many great Baltimore/MD legends at the Gala. Truly an honor... Looking forward to an incredible gig coming up in Texas where we are launching my new National Tour. Thank you. Drew
