Matthew Davidson News ~  Dec. 30,  2014   


   

 


We hope you had a Merry Christmas! If you're looking for New Year's Eve plans, The Matthew Davidson Band will be performing at Superior Grill on Wed., Dec. 31 from 7:00 - 11:00 pm. This is perfect for those of you who have trouble making it to midnight to celebrate the New Year, and for those who want to have a fun night out with their entire family. There aren't that many all-ages venues in Shreveport to hear (or play!) live music, so we appreciate the opportunity to perform at one of Shreveport's favorite places. Hope you can join us!

  


If you missed the airing of the Fox 33 televised holiday special, "A Gleeful Christmas", it can now be viewed online. Matthew's performance of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" begins at 3:38 and his performance with Nia Savoy begins at 16:28.

Thanks to Robert Trudeau for the shout-out on Shreveport Blog. Here's the text of his article:
"The Matthew Davidson Band - appearing at Superior Grill on Sun, Dec 28 - will rock the house if you show them a bit of response. I remember the day at Caddo Magnet HS when the group in the photo above broke into a version of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" at a rally in the gym. The teens watching them were seized with dance mania. Students in the bleachers rose with giant smiles and threw their hands into the air. In a few moments the most impassioned dancers were filling the floor of the gym. Jumping, shaking students were everywhere. 

Though they're still teens, the players in the Matthew Davidson band are journeyman musicians with an entertainment ethic to admire. Matthew recently opened for pop sensation Austin Mahone in Baton Rouge. He recently performed at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, at the Natchitoches Xmas Fest and numerous other fests. Nationally respected, he appears in ads for Fender guitars. 

Davidson is one of Shreveport's most talented teens. See him. And don't ignore the well-crafted original tunes on his CD's."     ~Robert Trudeau

Note: Here's the video of "Superstition" (starts at 3:15) mentioned above:

Reviews:
 

"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
