ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lucky Clark, reviewing this CD, wrote: "[Davis] reached out to me to see if I’d be willing to write about his new CD ... Davis sent me a copy of his aforementioned new album, “Walking the Hathaway Road.” I must state that I was immediately impressed with not only his songwriting (which has spot-on accuracy that touches the heart) but his voice and musical backing that he supplied by playing acoustic guitar, delta slide guitar, lead guitar and harmonica. In a telephone interview from his home, I began by telling him how much I enjoyed the 10 tracks on his solo release and how much they resonated with my own life experiences."

BIO:
I am a Maine musician- songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. I have recorded a set of ten recent original songs about small town life and love of all kinds. In addition to writing all the songs, I play acoustic guitar, delta slide guitar, lead guitar, and harmonica on these tracks. As Winslow Homer said: “When you paint, try to put down exactly what you see. Whatever else you have to offer will come out anyway.” That is what I have tried to do in the songs on the CD, which are rooted in the joys and heartaches of everyday life.
About me:
In the 60s I played solo and in folk music bands as part of the Boston/Cambridge folk scene and listened to the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. In Denver in the late 60s I worked the downtown bar scene in electric rock/blues bands, playing lead on Rolling Stones and Allman Brothers songs. Moving back to New England in the early 1970s, I played folk guitar in contra dance bands and played in schools and libraries for children- and at husking bees and other events in the early days of the Norlands Living History Center. With Mike Ladd, Ellen Bowman and John Whitney I played around Maine in the childrens’ band Moosekazoo, which one parent described as “Raffi meets the Grateful Dead.”
Currently I am playing lead guitar in an acoustic duo (Hurry Down Sunshine) with Readfield’s Brian Kavanah- we have played at festivals and outdoor concerts around Maine, art walks, gallery openings, and local clubs. I am also playing bass and singing harmony with Augusta area music veterans Bill Stone and Stacey Jacobsohn as Stone Quarry. Much of my playing is at a day program for people who are homeless or near-homeless and at nursing homes. And I play solo at farmers’ markets, community events, and at restaurants and brewpubs. I lead a chorus for adults with disabilities.
And in the last ten years I have been drawn to songwriting. I love the way a song can describe a simple event and at the same time move us so deeply emotionally. A song can create a shared emotional experience for an audience. More than applause, I play and sing for the moments when someone in the audience laughs or nods in recognition of our similarity as human beings. I have studied songwriting with two Maine legends- Martin Swinger and Jud Caswell- and these songs are the product of that learning and of my life experiences as a parent, a life partner, a grandparent, and an active citizen of a small Maine town.
