Matthew Davidson News ~  Jan. 27, 2014   


 
 
Matthew and Greg will be performing at Arthur's Bar & Grill at Southern Trace Country Club on Friday, Jan. 31 from 6-9 PM. (This venue is for club members only). Members can bring a guest, so you can always call up a friend who's a member and ask them to take you to dinner! 

 


Update on the "Grammy Amplifier" contest: Thanks to those of you who took the time to support Matthew in this contest. He finished the first round at position #11 out of 25 finalists (out of over 5000 song submissions). He wasn't selected as one of the 3 prize winners, but his music was heard by the judges and we appreciate your making that possible. Maybe next year!
 
Please check out the band's schedule in the newsletter below and see if they will be playing near you. We hope you will forward this newsletter to your friends. Thank you for your support!

 


Matthew is a member of The Brotherhood of the Guitar, which is sponsored by:

About Matthew Davidson -  
 
"You might, with so many deep blues connections, expect 15-year-old Louisiana guitar prodigy Matthew Davidson's new single to sound rootsy and raw. Instead, he draws in sounds and textures from a stirringly broad musical spectrum. "Heartbreaker" isn't a Led Zeppelin-like reworking of a dusty old blues side; it's a new melding of things both enduring and freshly conceived." ~Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews, Oct. 2013 
 
"We were impressed  with the band's performance, poise, and stage presence. And of course, Matthew's proficiency on the guitar! We'll be hearing more from him, I'm sure."  ~Stephen Lundgren, Stage Manager, 2013 Louisiana Seafood Festival
