About Matthew Davidson -  

 

""Davidson's talent is no secret. A remarkable introduction to the 14-year-old, Matthew Davidson proves he's a force to be reckoned with on his debut release Step Up." ~Annie Reuter, Associate Music Producer at CBS Radio, Brooklyn, NY-September 2012

 

"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
