PRESS RELEASE

Terry Davidson's latest studio album, "Transmission" presents twelve new original songs.

Recorded at Sonic Lounge Studios in Ohio and co-produced by Davidson and Joe Viers,

the record features a fantastic new lineup for his band, The Gears. It is the follow up to

2013's acclaimed "Sonic Soul Sessions" which was on the Roots Music Report National

Blues Album Chart for eight weeks.

Terry Davidson has been playing in Blues and Rock & Roll bands for over fifty years.

As leader of the Gears since the mid 80's, his compelling performances have won over

fans from everywhere in the Central and Eastern U.S. to as far as Paris, France. Songs from

his previous seven albums have been featured in television and movie soundtracks and

broadcast all over the world.

The compositions on "Transmission" see Davidson covering a wide variety of styles and

influences. Many songs are co-written with bassist Bill Geist. Ranging from raw Rock and Roll

and simmering Blues to funky Soul and even Country. The Gears touch all the bases on

this one. Terry reveals "We just let it fly. Played what we loved. No worries. I mean, we've

done shows over the years with everyone from AC/DC to Muddy Waters. Some of that's

got to rub off."

"Bad Bad Bad", "Damaged and Blue" and "This Means War" hearken back to the guitar driven

Rock and Roll roots of early Gears albums. The Bangshift Horns - Snakebite Roberts and

John Hill - and the human click track, drummer Dewayne Cupe, bring a whole new sound

to other songs on the album. Funky, Bluesy and Groovin' best describes the tracks "Love Twist",

"Thirteen Hour Train" and "My Baby's Not Around". The cinematic "The Rush", the Latin styled

"Leopard Girl and Monkey Man" and Country tinged "Tuesday at Two" show the band's

remarkable musical versatility. Davidson admits, "I'm really thrilled with the album. It's true

to my roots, yet "Transmission" shifts into something distinctly different."

 

 

 

-THIS IS A 2015 REVIEW OF THE ALBUM "Sonic Soul Sessions"

-BLUESMATTERS MAGAZINE - U.K. REVIEW

Terry Davidson has been performing in the USA for close on fifty years,

the album is his seventh release and leaves a really positive glow, the

thirteen tracks are all self written. There

is a good mixture of soulful and harder Blues here covering all the

American styles, with Texan & Chicago most prominent. The

band delivers their music in a style not too dissimilar to the Rolling Stones

and certainly take no prisoners, the pace is non stop with all the band

demonstrating high levels of musicianship.

Terry Davidson fronts the band on vocals and guitar

with a very confident blues, easy vocal style that allows him to move between

Rock & Roll and slower blues numbers effortlessly. I am sure the band name

of the "Gears" was suggested as it reflects the ease that they move between

the styles covered here, there are no weak links with the material, the highlight

is the final track "Without the Blues" which starts with spoken words setting

the scene for Terry to sing about the Blues stars he worked with during his

career, very cleverly done and I recognized at least twenty individual artists

names. Strong rocking blues album that gets better the more you play it.
