Robert Earl Keen
As singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen has built a reputation as one of the nation’s finest musical storytellers, he has been guided by several self-imposed rules and traditions that are often the antithesis of music industry standards. It’s a formula that has worked well for Keen since he began performing in 1981 and paving the way for a generation of songwriters and performers who make a living on the road. He paints musical portraits that are as vivid as sunsets over the great Southwest and stories that are as compelling and timeless as Cormac McCarthy novels. But what separates the Americana music pioneer from other songwriters is that he matches this lyrical literature with irresistible melodies, resulting in music that attracts thinkers and dancers alike. His songs are infused with such deep insight and humor that a new meaning and perspective is revealed with each listen, allowing his songs to grow more profound with time. That’s why artists including George Strait, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Lyle Lovett and the Dixie Chicks have chosen to record his songs over the years.
Andrea Davidson’s sound crosses the line between the arresting vocals of Patty Griffin and the funky and sensual musical backdrop of Bill Withers. She combines loops of vocals, guitar, and percussion to create a live performance that is sweetly stunning. Her songs are passionate, honest, and hopeful.
She does not write to fit a genre. Her creative process consists of tuning into herself and the moment, which allows the freedom of many different types of expression to emerge.
Andrea utilizes her musical career to assist in the co- creation of a better world. She deeply believes in the interconnectedness of all things. She has an unshakable faith in the power of humanity to heal itself, mother earth, and all life on this planet. Andrea emanates a profound sense of gratitude on stage. Her musical presence infuses a breath of positiveness and hope into those who attend her live performances. Andrea aspires to be a constant reminder that our life is our art.
An Andrea Davidson song, once heard, will be stuck in your head while you’re lying in bed. Come wired or tired, she promises you will leave inspired.
