Product Description

After The Fall is Debbie Davies' 11th solo recording and is an all-original affair with Debbie writing or co-writing six of the 11 songs. In 2010, Debbie lost her dear friend, blues musician Robin Rogers and later that year Debbie broke her arm. As she began to heal, she started writing and putting many of her experiences and feelings into songs. The result is 2012's, After The Fall.

In her amazing career Debbie has received 10 nominations for Blues Music Awards, and in 1997 and 2010 won the award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist. Debbie has recorded and performed with such blues luminaries as John Mayall, Albert Collins, Tab Benoit, Kenny Neal, Ike Turner, James Cotton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, Coco Montoya, Duke Robillard, Tommy Shannon, Chris Layton and Charlie Musselwhite.

Review

She wields an electric guitar as if it were a wand. --Los Angeles Times

Davies playing is extraordinary, full of propulsion and energy and melodic invention. --People Magazine

I don t often give endorsements or references, but once in a rare while I hear a musician of such talent that I want people to know. I believe my reputation backs up my ability to recognize exceptional blues guitarists. Such a one is Debbie Davies. Hear her now --John Mayall

Unlike my fellow Amazon reviewer, "Blues Suit Speaks", I was not familiar with Dabbie Davies until I got this new CD. I've always liked the release on the independent M.C> Records label and that's what lead me to this album.

I'll leave you to read BSS's detailed review for the track list, but say that I was captured by the first cut and, later on, by the diverse musical styles. What I really like was the variety on this album. Each track has its own mood and - unlike some blues albums - it's not the "same old, same old".

Track 3- "True Blue Fool" reminds me of those slow dance numbers from the 1950s (and would make a great single). "Done Sold Everything" - the next track - kicks it up a notch, with a smokin' guitar riff. Things slow down again with "Little Broken Wing" - a sparsely produced track. Not sure I'd call it a "blues song" but I love it! "Goin' to a Gaggle" takes us to the Crescent City with a NOLa piano beat.

While the closing song "Google Me Baby" is fun, it seems to me it will gave a short shelf life when the next big Internet phenom comes along. A bit too "topically trendy". For me.

Though Davies is a 30-year veteran of the blues scene, maybe others like me will discover her with this album. I'm glad I did.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

We all know Ms. Debbie Davies, her history and track record speak for itself. She is a living legend and a connect point to some of the Blues worlds greatest artists. As a young lady she rejected the stereotypes that were well laid out for women and pursued her guitar playing, and made it electric to kick it up a notch. Playing with Albert Collins as a member of the Ice breakers and the likes of John Mayall she has kept moving the artistic bar forward.

So with that being said how does one approach "After The Fall", her 11th solo recording, on a new label (M.C. Records) ? I suggest we try to rid ourselves of any preconceived notions, a look at this work with brand new eyes. Let's see her as she is, a `new' artist with a new label, and see if it still holds up to our expectations, as each of her previous releases have done.

A new label, a new release, a new Debbie Davies . . .

Straight off the top "Don't Put The Blame On Me" rocks out and sets the record straight as to what is going on and where the blame should be placed, and how to `man up' in any given situation. Jeremy Baum adds keys and B3 that fill out the sound and set the stage for what is to come.

"After The Fall" is a life lesson for all of us. Ringing with truth and played out in a lean and mean manner Ms. Davies speaks volumes with her guitar work emphasizing the situation and offering sound advice and warnings we should all heed.

Working with Don Castagno, who shares the songwriting duties the picture is one of life's lessons. The highs and lows, hope, despair loss friends and the sheer pleasure of being with friends and playing music. A nice turn of a phrase is Dons' "True Blue Fool" which Debbie makes solid with heartfelt singing and excellent Blues guitar work.

Debbie surely plays a mean axe. The selection of tracks is nicely tuned so that it covers a variety of grooves and changes. She's getting better all the time. Bearing in mind she's been always good this one leaves you to either play it again or press her for the next one like this.

Debbie Davies is my favorite blues woman.. Her guitar playing is second to none, male or female. Her voice is smooth as silk, I love Rory Block and Bonnie Raitt, but if I'm on a desert island and can only have one CD I go with Debbie. This album rocks. Every song is great. There is also great variety from song to song. No cookie cutter formula, each song has it's own unique groove.

This album contains songs that were all penned by Davies. She is a remarkable blues guitar slinger and a very fine singer as well. This album slips out of the strict "blues" genre a bit on a few tunes, but it all works very well. She has been playing for years with such greats as Albert Collins and Coco Montoya but since she has been playing on her own for the last fifteen or so years has not really received the acclaim that she so deserves. The talent is definitely there!

Some blues guitarists seem to look at their craft as an Olympic sport, i.e. how many notes can they play. Can you spell b-o-r-i-n-g? Debbie is more concerned with playing the right notes at the right time. I love hearing her as she supports the song rather than overwhelm it. Sings pretty too and nice song selection. If this is your first DD album it'll make you want to go back and get some of her older ones.

Not Debbie Davies best by any stretch of the imagination. This disc is a real mixed bag! Debbie is an excellent guitarist and there are several excellent tunes on this offering. However, there are also several very sub par ones as well. This offering is just not up to her usual standards. Ms Davie's is appearing at a local Blues club in the very near future and this offering isn't going to keep me away from the show. I'm looking forward to seeing her perform live and displaying her incredible talent. I've been an avid fan for many years. I'm hoping that the next offering has some stronger song writing efforts and we get to enjoy something a little more in keeping with the quality of previous offerings.
