Pinetop Perkins Homecoming Celebration
Hopson Commissary - Clarksdale, MS

Juke Joint Chapel Stage
Robert Trudeau and Matthew Davidson
"Matthew Davidson has a new record and a snappy, all-teen band. He also has a scene, a crowd, a gang of all ages that love his good-time blues and rock. Davidson's new 4-song record is rich of sound. Produced by industry veteran Joe Osborn, 2 of the tunes are commercial pop. The 3rd tune is the R n B staple, "Lie to me." Here Davidson clearly feels the vibe. Cut 4 is a rock instrumental written by the 14 year-old. It sounds like a groove that could have been cut by the Uniques or by the Kinks. Classic rocker!"

About Matthew Davidson -  


"There is no doubt in my mind, after listening to "Step Up", that Matthew Davidson is certainly the real deal, being equally proficient in both Pop/Rock and Blues genres. He is already great in what he does and the sky is the limit regardless of which musical direction he chooses to dominate. "Step Up" is a fantastic intro to a fantastic very talented rising star." ~John Vermilyea, "Blues Underground Network" September 2012


"Matthew Davidson is blessed with a God-given, born-in-the-bone, talent. His musicianship is far beyond his age. When I play with Matthew, it's like playing with a musician with many years of experience. Always a perfect gentleman, Matthew's personality shines through in every performance. He obviously loves what he is doing!"      ~Joe Osborn, famed "Wrecking Crew" bassist who played on numerous hit records of the 60's - 70's with Glen Campbell, The Carpenters, The 5th Dimension, Simon and Garfunkel and many more
