Greetings!  

 

Happy New Year! If you just got your new 2012 calendar, we hope you will check out our schedule below and mark our show dates on it. 

 

The Nov. 2011 issue of "Bass Player" magazine contained an article featuring famed bassist Joe Osborn. Thanks to Joe for giving Matthew a shout-out during his interview when he was asked what he was doing these days. "The Louisiana-based Osborn is currently producing and playing behind 13-year-old guitar whiz Matthew Davidson from Shreveport."

Music on the Couch Newsletter - Artist Spotlight  - Dec. 23, 2011
 
 

"At 13, Matthew Davidson was one of the youngest guests to ever sit on The Couch. His appearance on March 28, 2011, is still the highest downloaded show in the history of Music On The Couch.


I was first introduced to Matthew at the 2011 IBC, where he appeared in the Youth Showcase.  Standing alone on stage with his guitar, Matthew proceeded to enthrall the audience with his skilled playing.  

His knowledge of the Blues goes back to the Delta.  Never one to stop at an artist who is playing today, Matthew delves into the history of the music to find its originator. He has appeared at the 2011 King Biscuit Festival on the Bit-O-Blues Stage (for younger artists) and is constantly playing in and around his home of Shreveport, LA. He also was selected to perform in the "Texas 10 under 20 Showcase" at the Dallas International Guitar Festival.

Keep your eye and ears on this young man...he will be playing in front of larger and larger crowds in the very near future."                                                                                                  Vinny Marini - 12/23/2011 - Music on the Couch newsletter
