Debbie Davies "After The Fall"

Debbie Davies never liked following the normal path of most female musicians. Attracted to the electric guitar at a young age, she grew up in a world where female musicians were only supposed to play acoustic. Good thing she didn’t follow the crowd as she continues to release quality electric blues like on her new album After The Fall. She kicks off her album with an up tempo blues rock track “Don’t Put The Blame On Me” that will get your toe tapping and maybe even get you to dance. You hear her prowess on the electric guitar on “Done Sold Everything” and hear some versatility on “All My Forgiveness” as she plays a more laid back blues style that Bob Dylan has kept alive over the past few years. One song on the album that connects strongly with the staff at WSGE is her poignant tribute to Robin Rogers called “Down Home Girl”. Davies truly illustrates the person that Robin was by highlighting her unique personality. Davies has worked hard throughout the years to make a name for herself. She’s received awards like the 1997 W.C. Handy award for best Contemporary Blues Artist and the 2010 Blues Music Award for Best Traditional Female Artist. With this release, however, she clearly won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
