About Matthew Davidson -  

"You wouldn''t expect someone who just got his driving permit to possess such skill, but the 16-year-old Davidson certainly has it in spades.Shreveport's been garnering national attention for its wealth

of talented musicians, and Davidson seems poised to follow suit. ~

Justin Massoud, K94.5


"I covered the music scene in Shreveport from 1976 to 1991 and encountered a wide range of talented players. Matthew could easily hold his own with any of them. Talent like his is a divine gift, and I hope he takes his potential to the limit - and beyond." ~ John Andrew Prime, writer for The Shreveport Times, 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

Matthew's Music
Matthew's 2nd EP "Cross My Heart" is now on iTunes and AmazonYou can order a physical copy online at this link: We hope you will check it out! Thanks for your support!

"It's not just that the 16-year-old Matthew Davidson writes his own music, a considerably rare thing among blues prodigies. And it's not just that he deftly combines these rootsy leanings with towering pop hooks. It's not just his boyish good looks, either. It's all of that, as Davidson crafts a sophomore project that is as intriguing as it is offbeat. In the end, Cross My Heart is both a blues record that often moves far afield from the blues, and a pop record with real soul. And it works, principally because of the endless approachability that Davidson brings to things." ~Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews, May 14, 2014


"If there's anything to be said of Matthew Davidson's music, it's that you never truly know what to expect. His ability to capture the essence of his roots in jazz and blues but stay relevant are always what intrigues me about Davidson's appeal."~Derick Jones, The Shreveport Times, April 23, 2014 


"From the Beatles and Rolling Stones to Muddy Waters and U2, smart teen Matthew Davidson gets it. His new 5-song release, "Cross My Heart," is danceable and effervescent. It's the kind of pop that will make you drive better and make you look good cutting a rug in your living room. Beginning as a kid with a hot hand for blues guitar, Davidson is transitioning to vocalist, songwriter and entertainer. Surrounded by rockin' tunes and effective harmonies, Davidson's package kicks." ~Robert Trudeau, Heliopolis, April 16, 2014
