Matthew Davidson News ~  Oct. 7,  2014   


The Matthew Davidson Band will be performing this Saturday, Oct. 11 at the Red River Revel in Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport, LA. The band will be performing on the El Dorado stage from 12:15 - 1:00 pm. Admission to the Revel on Saturday is $5. Children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. 

FYI - As the map below shows, The El Dorado Stage is located near Clyde Fant Parkway in the Sci-Port Parking lot. (This is a change from previous years). Just a heads up...There are only a few food booths in this Lower Level area (pizza and corn dogs), so if you're planning on having some traditional Revel food from the Upper Level, you might want to have lunch either before or after MDB's set. (Or carry your food quite a ways if you're brave!)

The highlight of the band's October schedule will be coming up later this month in New Orleans! See more information about "Boo in the Zoo" at Audubon Zoo in the newsletter below. 

Last weekend's trip to Texas was as much fun as we expected it to be! Here's a video filmed by Chip Cogswell at the South Street Art Festival in Arlington:

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
