Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DEBBIE DAVIS

Holdin’ court

2009-11-13

Debbie Davies’s new cd “Holdin’ court” lets the electric blues guitar goddess shine. I’ve always enjoyed her music but not her vocals so much. Davis’s music heritage includes her father working with people like Ray Charles and Frank Sinatra, her mother a classical pianist, and Davis spent 3 years with Albert Collins in his Ice Breakers band. Since 1991 she’s been on her own. After 22 years of performing, Davies brings her road tested licks and music appreciation to her 12th solo offering. This VizzTone release is a collection of originals songs packed with homage’s to electric blues players of the 1960s including Otis Rush, Albert Collins, and Gatemouth Brown. I think this cd has something for everyone from the opening horns backed blues tune “Fishnet” to the last “Zoom-in” surf guitar style song. I recommend you Play Often!
