Recent Reviews:

Terry Davidson is a mid-western blues rocker who mixes blues, rock and a little soul and dares his audience not to dance. This is a solid roadhouse band determined to let the good times roll. They cover a lot of musical ground, shifting the dominance of rock to blues to soulful grooves, just like a roadhouse band should. - Professor Bebop WTJU Charlottesville/Richmond VA

One reviewer comments:
"The songwriting skillfully blends the band's Blues roots with influences spanning from Jazz to Surf music. The journeymen rhythm section grooves & burns while the raw, stripped down production showcases Terry's sometimes mean, sometimes smooth guitar playing. The harmonica and keyboards give a wonderful texture, never competing to be in the spotlight. Terry's vocals  range from laid back and clean as on "Slow and Easy" to low down and dirty as on "Blood", fitting each song nicely.
A great set from a seasoned band."
