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
