ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Cascade Mountains break the back of Washington State and divide it geographically in two. To the east, vast farm lands bursting with wheat, apples, hops and vineyards and to the west, nestled against the shores of the Salish Sea (formerly Puget Sound) is a thin strip of lowland once so unimaginably verdant with forest it was referred to as the Green Desert. Today it is the location of Seattle, once called the most highly educated city in America, the massive industrial behemoth known as Boeing, the insidious digital dynamo of Microsoft, Starbucks, grunge and TV series such as Twin Peaks, The Killing and others which shall remain nameless.
While much has changed, much remains the same; the fog persists, the rain is semi-constant and a clear day will find some of the most beautiful country in the world on display for all to see. A view of Mt. Rainier rising above the Space Needle tends to inspire awe in the most cynical of us.
And that goes double for those who spend the rain sodden winter hunkered down strumming guitars and writing songs as if their lives depended on it. Not all of these songs were written during the gray season and not all of them have to do with that time of year or this lush, green place but there is enough of the flavor of the area instilled in them to, hopefully, strike those who actually live here as familiar.
Most of these songs were previously released on other CDs created by Gary Davis (i.e. me) as Gary Davis but unfortunately that moniker, used to such great effect and success by the late, great Reverend Gary Davis (the guitar giant of the Piedmont Blues scene) necessitated a change of name (via an on-line band name generator) to Metro Echo.
But, to steal a phrase, the song remains the same and these songs, tried and tested before many an audience of rain soaked locals, are chosen as representative of, not just myself, but where I live.
Or not; there are those who would argue the point and hey, when all is said and done I'm just a guy with a guitar who likes to make music with his friends. If you enjoy listening half much as I do playing than all is well with the world regardless of the clouds that come or the resulting weather which continues to bedevil our local forecasters.
