My friend Rebecca AKA Breakup Babe sent me a linky to Devin Davis‘ site a coupla years ago and I picked up his CD. Listening to it again lately, somehow it goes well with winter. A very creative singer-songwriter in the more intellectual pop rock realm of things, Davis’ clever lyrics are matched by some lovely harmony and call and answer vocal arrangements. At the heart though, I think the reason his songs work so well is their very human conscience, and a yearning that ends up sounding universal. Check out “Turtle and the Flightless Bird” and “Iron Woman” on Devin’s mp3 page. Raw, unvarnished production adds to the delicious desperation of these works. And hey, if you like the songs, buy his CD won’t you, so maybe he’ll make good on his promise to make another one! Becky and I would both be so pleased. Thank you.
