ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the debut solo release from singer/songwriter Mark Davenport. The self-produced CD is a retrospective of songs drawn from Davenport’s imaginative catalogue, penned over a 20-year period. Centered on Davenport’s vocal and keyboard work, these newly recorded songs also feature tasteful guitar tracks, recorders, cello, percussion, and appearances by several guest artists, including noted jazz saxophonist Andy Snitzer and Davenport’s son Miles Davenport (guitars).

A note from the performer:

In 2008, after a close family member was diagnosed with cancer, I returned to the recording studio after a 16-year absence. The experience was a very personal one for me, and somehow led me back to songs I had written years earlier. I gradually allowed myself to reconnect with them, and my past, rediscovering and reworking them in a new light-and also writing some new ones. On a personal level, I wanted to create an album that expressed certain emotional themes and subjects: dreams, imagination, hope, fate, HEALING! On a purely musical level, I sought to construct a song cycle that fused popular styles with classical forms and compositional techniques. I'm glad I can share these songs with you."

A note about purchasing this album on CD Baby:

The CD includes a 20-page full color booklet with all of the lyrics, photos (by George Ancona, Betsy Williams, and Tom Sundro Lewis), album credits, special thanks, and extensive liner notes, which really help to understand the concept of the album and the stories behind each song. The CD booklet is only included with the purchase of the CD (not the downloads).

Full Circle
Mark Davenport's CD is awesome. It is the culmination of his contemporary musical works. It explores life's experiences and challenges in a series of metaphors and lyrical expression that speak to both universal and his own personal journey on the road of life. He uses this occasion to speak to world concerns regarding the Darfur atrocities as well as breast cancer, which the CD is dedicated to. "Love Will Find a Way" is a knock out tribute to the Beatles.

Full Circle
Mark Davenport's piano and voice transports you to another place. The songs span several genres with impeccable vocals, great instrumentation and beautiful lyrics. This is Mark's first album, after a lifetime of playing music and coming from a musical family. It is long overdue and beautifully done. The CD is better than the download because it comes with a booklet full of pics and history relating to Mark and people he grew up with. Enjoy it any way you can; it is all good, very melodic with interesting lyrics and definitely worth owning. I love it! His voice is exceptional and so are the arrangements and choice of songs.

Full Circle: Songs on the Carousel of Time
From the first sound on this recording it is clear we are going on a journey Using stories and recordings from his own life Mark Davenport takes us full circle from childhood …that magical time of innocence, nursery rhymes, and dreams ….through all the joys and sorrows of life. Skillfully using the elements of music: melody, harmony, and rhythm, Mark communicates the universal images of Dreams, Love, Hope and Healing. The music moves us through the dance of life reminding us of our interconnectedness and interdependence, and inspiring faith that all will be well; all we have is time and all you need is love. Mark Davenport’s musicianship is rock solid, and his vocal and musical talent is head and shoulders above the rest. Full Circle is a CD you will want to add to your music library.

Beyond Concepts To Human Depictions Of Emotion
The most important aspect of Mark Davenport's brand new album Full Circle may not be that there is a series of pieces that fit together, but instead that each part is left human, raw,and poignant, as beautiful shared moments from all our lives- just like we remember them. This can be seen and felt in Prologue where recordings of Davenport's people from his childhood turn into soulful jazz saxophone licks and heartbreaking lyrics that weave the past and present together.Waterfall piano parts evoke more than the glue throughout the album,,, but speak each themselves of a different quality each time they appear or reappear. Everything is functional- it all runs together the colors Davenport wishes to render. But the real poetry is the feeling that breaks the heart, yet moves on to the other end of a circle that engraves feelings rather than strategically placing them.
