Cody Hughes Davidson Band is Hanging It UP

The band I have been blessed to play with for the last 2 years has decided to take a break from the stage. Cody and his wife have recently had their first child and he wants to make sure not to miss a moment with his new son. I do not and can not blame him for putting his priorities and heart at home with his new family and wish him the best. It was a wonderful 2 years and I had a great time meeting so many new people and playing all around this great state. There's talk to possibly still record our second album since we have more than enough songs written to share, but that's yet to be confirmed. I'll still be posting my random stories here as I go along enjoying the music and surrounding scene. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy a few free weekends off and start getting my ear to the ground for any other local bands looking for a harmonica mandolin guy.

I was clicking around on our myspace checking future road dates and came across a song I forgot I recorded with Cody. We wrote it, slapped it together in the living room, and finished recording after a couple of takes. At the time I thought it was fun and didn't really pay much attention to it since it was so thrown together. Looking back I'm happy we did it and need to get back in the rhythm of jamming with Cody acoustic to hear the core of things. Not too shabby after forgetting about it for a year. Click on the thing below and it should take you to our myspace where you can click on "Paperweight" for a listen.

Speaking of acoustic duo fun, Cody and I are playing acoustic at the Casa Del Sol in Midland this weekend. Some bigger shows coming up the next few weekends so it should be fun to get some non full band perspective. Hope to see ya'll along the way.

Dottie Hill Music Fest Sat. August, 7'th Midland,TX

Sorry for the late heads up but it has been a busy week for me. Apologies all around nonetheless. Tomorrow is a great concert event celebrating the life of Dottie Hill and raising money for the American Cancer Society. This is the 5'th annual festival and will not disappoint. There is a chili cook off all day, a silent auction in the early evening, and of course great live music all night long. Starting things off is an acoustic song swap of some up and coming local talent, Next will be Jackson Lee Brooks Band kicking things off full band. Cody Hughes Davidson Band, that's us, takes the stage at 9(?), followed by the talented Emory Quinn. Capping off the rest of the evening is the always crazy life show from Mike McClure's Band. Come early and stay happy. I hope to see everyone out there.

($15 at the door 21 and up at The Hog Pit Midland, TX. Specific info on the Dottie Hill Music Fest Facebook page. All proceeds to the American Cancer Society)
