Davidson, Ethan Daniel

Ethan Daniel Davidson’s Come Down Lonesome is a haunting journey through the dark passages and deserted plains of Americana. On his latest studio album, Davidson pays homage to American folk traditions and legends with reimagined songs by Blind Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, Bob Dylan, and Cowboy Joe Babcock, along with traditional songs and his original songs. Davidson’s own finely crafted compositions place him squarely in this esteemed lineage. But, not one to be confined by tradition, his albums reveal a troubadour with an adventurous spirit.

Produced by his wife, Gretchen Gonzales Davidson of Slumber Party, and Warren Defever of His Name Is Alive, Davidson creates sonic landscapes that blanket the rural South and West in a psychedelic haze. On the Dylan cover “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine” Davidson’s wistful vocals pierce through crackling guitars and feedback, like a transmission from the distant past, while hints of noir inflect “The Longest Train,” a tale of murder and punishment, as he sings “Diminish me/Come finish me.” The traditional “Leaving Cheyenne” brings to mind Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris, and the spare “I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water” closes the album not with a bang but with quiet reflection. It sees Davidson at his plaintive best, with just a guitar and his voice.

One of the great folk singer-songwriters working today, Ethan Daniel Davidson’s music takes its listeners far beyond his native Detroit, through America’s musical past and into realms of mortality and myth, love and loneliness

Praise and Testimonials for Team Clermont - Music PR & Radio Promotion

Felix BechtolsheimerTeam Clermont are as good as it gets. We are a UK-based label and we were warned off hiring a US publicist. I’m so glad that we ignored this advice and decided to go ahead with these guys. We did an EP last year, which got fantastic results at both press and radio and we are currently in the middle of a full album campaign. Bill and Nelson are some of the nicest people we’ve worked with and they are coordinating and integrating amazingly with our UK and European publicists. We will certainly be using them for our future projects. Can’t recommend them highly enough!!

Indie-Music Reviewed Carolinabound's 'Smoking Gun' EP and Loved it

Smith most definitely has a way with words, and uses them to vividly paint moving pictures to complement the musical collaboration of his fellow players on Smoking Gun. There is a potency and honesty to these songs, and while they may have been borne from traditional country and folk, the voice that has emerged is distinct and modern. It’s a fine line to walk but Smith does so with an ease that makes listening to this record comforting and truly enjoyable. Smoking Gun is a deceptively complex collection of tunes that displays a gifted lyricist to his full potential.

Indie-Music Calls The Grizzled Mighty's New Album Their Favorite of 2015 So Far

As a listener, it’s pure musical therapy; after a long week of highs, lows and everything in between, putting this record on at full volume has a way of dispelling the demons that lurk in the shadows. And there’s that word: pure. Ryan Granger (vocals, guitar) and Lupe Flores (drums) do not make music full of posture or pretentious drama. Enter Closed Knuckle Jaw: It’s real, it’s honest, and it’s coming straight at you like a freight train.
