Album Notes
Among the new generation of smart, sophisticated New York songwriters, Scott Evan Davis has emerged as one of the most promising, with a voice all his own. This debut studio recording of twelve songs, arranged and produced by David Snyder, features some of the brightest stars from Broadway, including Faith Prince (Guys and Dolls / Bells Are Ringing); Liz Callaway (Merrily We Roll Along / Baby); Jason Graae (Ragtime / Falsettos); Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys); Nikki Renee Daniels (Porgy and Bess); and Lisa Howard (Spelling Bee). Joined by veteran cabaret performers Julie Reyburn, Natalie Douglas, Jon Philip Alman, Nicole Johndrow and Joshua Dixon, they sing songs of deep emotion, abiding love, cynical humor, lost innocence, and acceptance.

From NYC’s “Cabaret Hotline” review of THE MUSIC OF SCOTT EVAN DAVIS: In Concert at BIRDLAND -

“Scott Evan Davis' music is complex and adult. It's exciting and dramatic and takes you to places you didn't expect to go, a journey through sophisticated meter, melody and lyric... This is smart music that taps into some very deep emotional wells. Many of the lyrics give the impression of moving forward, of acceptance - but also reveal sadness, anger and disillusionment... Davis seems to open himself up - complete with heart on sleeve and guts exposed... These singers probably sensed that they were getting in on the ground floor with a composer whose career may well soar - and many in the audience sensed the same thing - including myself.” - Mona Finston

Brilliant new composer Scott Evan Davis
I had the extreme pleasure of listening to Caustiously Optimistic, The first CD by an amazing new talented lyricist/composer. The songs are amazing with a fresh twist, the intensity, the words portray the wit the humor the story each song tells not to mention the abundance of very talented performers singing on this CD Scott Evan Davis had a dream and realized it when he wrote this album. If you haven't already done so, indulge yourself and buy the CD or download from iTunes or CD baby. I promise you will love it and nt be disappointed. Scott Evan Davis is handsome
Charming humble and talented and I know this will be the first of many wonderful things to come. BRAVO Scott Evan Davis for having the passion to make your dream a reality
