No Place On Earth

Billy Davidson

The new studio album "No place on earth" is the culmination of two years of writing and recording 10 new songs.

"No place on earth" the title track to Billy Davidson's 2011 studio record is the story of his move from Syracuse, NY hometown to his new home for over 20 years in The Florida Keys. A culmination of two years of writing and recording 10 new original songs,such as "Rock Harbor" of which he explains "I wrote it on the guitar but soon realized how it worked well live on the mandolin. It has an Irish shanty thing going on. I brought it to my friend Jon Liebing in his studio 10/2011 and recorded it in 2 days at his studio with me playing mandolin and lead and background vocals and Jon playing drums , keyboards, guitars, Slide guitar (listen for the birds), background vocals. Jon also mixed and produced. I found out after researching, that Key Largo was originally "Rock Harbor". It was only after the famous movie "Key Largo" starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall that the powers that be realized that they could capture more attention re-naming it Key Largo. There's "Carolina" that reflects times spent in The Low Country of South Carolina. It could also be a gal named Carolina. Also recorded and produced by Jon Liebing in his home studio 7 2011. Billy Plays acoustic guitar and lead vocals and Jon Played the rest. And "My way" A rocker featuring blazing electric guitars and a hook that never leaves you.

Daydreaming

Billy Davidson and Steve Webb

Florida Keys based singer/songwriters Billy Davidson and Steve Webb's second CD. Similar to there acoustic based first CD "Kindred Spirits" covering 9 songs by there favorite songwriter like, Keb' Mo', Steve Earle, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Steve Webb'

Billy Davidson and Steve Webb originally come from musical backgrounds from Syracuse, NY. Over the past 2 decades they wound up in the Islamorada, Florida Keys working outdoor bars by evening and recording studio by day. Their first release as a Duo resulted in a collection of their favorite singer/songwriters called "Kindred Spirits" an acoustic guitar and harmonica based record of covers featuring Billy's vocals and Steve's fine mandolin playing. This music is best described by Billy as "PopGrass",

Keeping with the "spirit" of the first, they basically broadened there musical palette on the 2nd album by bringing out a wide range of electric guitars, beefing up the background vocals (Even feature a duet on one song) and had Steve sing a few more songs with his deep baritone. The title track is also self penned by Steve.

Kindred Spirits

Billy Davidson and Steve Webb

Pop Grass, James Taylor Neil Young, Tom Waits, John Prine, Hoyt Axton. Billy Sings Plays Acoustic Guitar and Harmonica while Steve plays Mandolin Acoustic guitar and sings and both play bass and percussion.

This record is a labour of love born out of music and chemistry. We've known each other for 20 some odd years and had mutual respect for our love of music and the talent that we each admired. I have to say up front that it was Steve's persistence more than I that started our mutual musical path. Showing up to my gigs non-grate only because he wanted to make himself a better player on his newly acquired Gibson mandolin and the chance to discover were he could take it. Around this time I had been experimenting with the harmonica. When these two sounds came together we new as well as the audience that we were onto something special. So here is a collection of songs that best exemplifies this period time that we went through and the Kindred Spirits that we felt.

A Little note on the new CD In Oct.1997, just before we left from the Adirondack Mountains of Old Forge, New York to our 8th season performing at The Lorelei in Islamorada, Florida Keys we commenced work on our follow up to "Barely Alive Volume I", a CD we recorded live at a series of shows in 1995. After a 6 month sojourn performing at The Lorelei we returned to NY and finished up in July of 1998. This album was unbelievably recorded and mixed in only 10 days with minimal attention to details and special attention to just having fun. Recorded live in the studio, keeping with the tradition of "Barely Alive Volume I" and with as few overdubs as humanly possible. (Ever try singing at 10am the morning after a gig the night before?) These "Cover" songs are songs we wish we wrote and if we did we’d be dancin’ naked in Tahiti and not struggling to find Executive Producers to help finance our recording habit!!
