CD Review: Moot Davis Steps Out On The "Town"
The album begins with the classic, honky-tonk, twang sounds of “Rags To Rhinestones” and “Rocket.” The album features Marty Stuart’s long-time guitarist Kenny Vaughan, who also doubled as the album’s producer, as well as steel guitar player Chris Scruggs, drummer Harry Stinson and bassist Paul Martin. The smoothness of Davis’ voice is heard in “Fade to Gold” and in “Crazy In Love With You” in which he duets with Elizabeth Cook. The song “How Long” shuffles along like a Johnny Cash Sun Records’ single as Davis then shows-off his storytelling lyrics in the 7-minute “Black & White Picture.” Moot Davis sounds like Chris Isaak on the meaningful “Memory Lane,” before closing the album with the slow country-jaunt of “Man About Town.”
Moot Davis has shows scattered throughout the first half of the year, with a string of dates in Nashville, TN. For a complete list of tour dates and information on Davis’s new album “Man About Town,” check out his website mootdavis.com.
