ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What happens when you mix one part Gordon Lightfoot with one part Trace Adkins – add a dash of Jimmy Buffett, a pinch of Cat Stevens, and blend the concoction thoroughly together with a serving of Montgomery-Gentry? One need only sample a cut or two from Jim Davidson’s new album “Which Way From Here?” to get a “flavor” for what this new musical creation is capable of delivering.

Country at heart, yet steeped in the traditions of his Southern & Folk-Rock heritage, Jim has crafted a full-bodied and unique sound all his own. His baritone vocals are out front and often intensely personal – yet his arrangements and delivery are surprisingly contemporary. His ability to re-trace the steps that led him “home to his musical roots” several years ago seem to have connected with a sizable audience as well ... both in, and outside of his coastal South Carolina “lowcountry” home.

“People who don’t know me often ask what kind of music I write. It’s difficult to answer that question because my material seems to cover so much territory. Whatever you call it, my songs tell the stories of my life. I have heard great songwriters like Jeffery Steele, Craig Wiseman, and Rivers Rutherford say ‘write what you know about’. Well, after a decade away from my music (Jim had a “real job” in the high-tech field), I took my guitar out of its case and wrote not only what I know - but what I have LIVED. And these days, I seem to have a LOT more to talk about than I did when I was in college.”

Recorded in January on Nashville’s famed “Music Row”, Jim and his amazingly gifted producer Mike Bush, brought together a team of Nashville’s most sought-after session players to create “Which Way From Here?” This “A Team” as Jim calls them, together with veteran Nashville engineer/producer George Clinton – owner of Bayou Recording Studio and host to such artists as Alabama, Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, Martina McBride, Hank Williams Jr. and many others – worked tirelessly to capture, refine, mix, and master Jim’s melodies and lyrical messages.

Regardless of a person’s taste in music – be it country, rock & roll, southern/folk-rock, timeless ballads, or just good old-fashion “real life” story telling, there’s something here for everybody. Whether it’s the uplifting and celebratory love song “She Makes Being in Love a Good Time”, the hard-hitting country rock classics “You Drive Me” or “Guilty Dogs Bark”, the wildly hilarious “Sunset City Senior Saturday Night”, or the poignant and heart-gripping “Make Time Take Time" or "Fisher of Men”, this new CD warrants consideration by the serious music connoisseur.

Whatever style or emotion it is that Davidson captures, he has managed to bring heart, soul, and his LIFE to the table – essential elements that will not escape his listeners. There is an unmistakable conviction in “Which Way From Here?” … but considering that this project was completed “on location” where country legends have worked, that should come as no surprise.

High quality,rich tone and awsome lyrics.

Bruce(Boo) Berger

A slick southern serenade
Dip me in pluff mud if this isn't the best country album I own. Jim really delivers.

Rob Petry

Bonnie - from way in the university past

as always, a stellar performance, insightful words that will bring you to your k
Hmm. I wrote the meat above. Since you sang at my wedding, I didn't think you could get better, but guess what? You did. But, I really didn't expect less. Well done, Jim -- Bonnie

Flew \"The Boss\" last tour, and wouldn\'t you know it? I had no CD\'s in my bag!!! Crummy luck!! Just ordered three more, one of which is gift-wrapped in my bag and ready to lateral.

Hank Hawley

Great music from a Great performer.
First heard and met Jim, his wife, family (which there are a lot of) and friends and instanly became a fan. This album is great, but only a sprinking of his talent. Best said is,"What you hear is what you get", when you meet him and follow his tunes and talent. There are songs on this CD that should be being played over the air. I think the music world will be impressed with this album.

John Best

Like a fresh breeze from across the marsh
I live in Birmingham now but was raised over there on a coastal island. This CD is like sitting on the dock after supper and feeling a fresh breeze from across the marsh. I can't say which song I like best but they do take me home.

Jim Rocks!
In listening to Jim Davidson sing, it has made it easier in my move from New York City to Bluffton, SC. He totally rocks and reminds me of singers back home with a Southern sound. Being first-generation Irish, Jim's singing reminds me of another time.
