ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Davie Gayle was raised on country music in New Jersey. That's right, New Jersey. Her dad, a blue-collar laborer, taught guitar and played in a country western band. He passed his love of music on to his four children and they grew up performing as a family. After college she teamed up with her older brother, Michael and they began writing and performing together as The Gayles.

Inspired by the L.A. country rock sound, the duo moved to southern California where they formed a band featuring Davie on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. They signed a publishing deal and a few of their songs were placed in film and television. Eventually, her brother started an independent label and began producing records, while Davie focused mainly on songwriting.

Blessed with a voice that can belt the blues or croon the most intimate ballad, she was soon recording lead and backing vocals for other recording artists, songwriters and producers. She performed live regularly with critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Susan J. Paul and appears on Susan's "Human Factor", "Naked Heart" and "Big Love" CDs.

When Davie began working on her first solo project, she drew from the stories of the town she grew up in, a town they once called Roundabout near the Raritan Bay. She stumbled upon the true story of ancient amber found in the local claypits, and knew she had the title of her CD. The story behind the amber resounded with her at a critical time in her life, and Davie couldn’t stop it from spilling out into what would become the title track, “Amber In The Clay”.

This Jersey girl and California dreamer has truly evolved into a fine storyteller and engaging performer. Her real life experiences, hindsight and insight are there in every line as she delivers them with a nod, a tear, or a wink. If you let her, she'll lure you in with her own "yin/yang with a twang" brand of Americana music.

Two of her songs, Doghouse Flowers and Get Me appear the Dec. 07 release of independent film "Missionary Man" directed by and starring Dolph Lungren.

Davie performs regularly around southern California and hosts a successful monthly songwriter showcase called "Friday Night Writers". She also performs back east whenever she can. She's busy working on her follow-up to Amber, rehearsing with a band, getting ready to record. This next project promises to lean more to Davie's bluesy side. She's been writing songs with her old Hagstrom and '65 reissue Fender Mustang.

This album was incredible. I grew up with the artist in the small town that she sings about. It was very nostalgic for me yet all my friends who heard it for the first time loved it In the busy world we live in, it's wonderful to sick back and listen to such meaningful stories.Davie has a timeless story telling style that her Dad would be so proud of yet the younger generation would love her dynamic sounding music. My 20 year old son liked it too. Keep up the good work.

Classic country feel with excellent vocals
If Emmylou Harris had ever decided to rock out in her career, then the result would have sounded something like Davie Gayle’s latest record, “Amber In The Clay.” With songs ranging from country to contemporary ballads, Gayle takes us for a trip down Americana lane and does not disappoint. Her pristine country vocals sound wonderful and emulate classic Dolly Parton, but still have an original feel to it. You can hear Gayle’s sweet voice on songs like “Get Me” and “You Don’t Say.” Looking for the Americana feel? Look no further than the title track as it is a perfect listen for anyone who enjoyed Robert Plant/Alison Krauss’s disc (“Raising Sand”). There are also some fine pedal steel guitar moments on this record, as heard on “3:09.” If you are looking for that timeless female country vocal tone with a little rock ‘n’ roll under it, then this Davie Gayle’s “Amber In The Clay” is for you.

Secret's Out
Davie Gayle is one of my favorite artists. Great vocals ranging from rockin' to a midnight whisper inside exquisite songwriting. One of the best kept secrets in the Americana genre...but not for long!
