Jackson, Mississippi native, Anne Davis' self-produced album, a compilation of thought-provoking upbeat
tempos and ballads from the "folk-alternative" artist, has been turning
ears as it has traveled throughout the U.S. and beyond by receiving
quite favorable college radioairplay. Davis wrote all fifteen tracks,
and the "organic feel" of the melodies is attributed to the defining
instruments you'll find on the album.
"What I really wanted to go for was to put together a project using
only real instruments....and that meant no compromise with using any
type of fabricated sounds, including drum machines." And, that's exactly
what you're going to hear--such instruments as the cello, violin,
upright acoustic bass, mandolin, accordion, penny whistle and the
uilleann pipe on the CD. "I wanted everything to be real....for me, as
an artist, it only made sense for the production of the project to be as
soul-baring as the lyrics."
Sharing a bit of background, Davis matter-of-factly will tell you, "I
perform, sing, and write simply because that's what I do. I've been
writing and singing since I was a little girl, giving concerts for my Siamese cat, Feather, and our Greyhound, Zip, in the backyard with my
tennis racket guitar. It just seemed the thing to do. Years later, I'm
still finding myself writing and scribbling down song lyrics on napkins
or backs of envelopes--and this time, playing to larger audiences beyond
an attentive cat and dog. Apparently, it's just a part of who I am and
why I'm here."
Although Davis' singing began at an early age around the house and in
church, she really began pursuing music seriously while attending
college. During a weekend retreat her sophomore year at Mississippi
State University, Anne bit the bullet and performed a song she had
written. "Nervously, with hands shaking, heart pounding, I got up and
shared for the first time one of my own songs and the response was
completely mind-blowing. I remember sensing that evening that something
truly significant had taken place that would alter my life forever. I
was left reeling for days....I guess it all started that night. Somehow,
I've had gigs ever since."
