An evening with Andrea Davidson and Alex Wright
$8 advance / $10 day-of-show
8 pm Andrea Davidson
Andrea Davidson is truly a unique independent pop singer and songwriter. She is well-known nationally and internationally for her ability to captivate audiences as a multi-instrumentalist and powerful one-woman performer.
Andrea’s gift to play her muted strat while simultaneously controlling drums with both feet, beatboxing, and playing bass are instrumental and production skills that must be seen, listened to, and appreciated. Add her effortless range and authentic vocal characteristics to the instrumentals and the performances are simply unforgettable.
With a deep commitment to music’s ability to bring people together, uplift, and heal, she has won an International Song of Peace Award and opened for the Dalai Lama as he toured the world to promote world peace and compassion.
Understanding music’s importance to childhood development, Andrea has worked as a committed Artist in Residence in Kentucky and has taught music to underprivileged children in South Africa. This year she will debut her Voluntour project to benefit music and the arts in K-12 schools across the USA.
With major-label publishing, production and record deals, Andrea has spent recent years hyper-focused on honing her craft in Nashville, TN. After 2 1/2 years of solo writing, getting a song placed in the hit TV series "Nashville", co-writing with multiple acclaimed songwriters, and stepping into the studio with grammy-award winning producer Jay Joyce, Andrea is currently thrilled to begin sharing her latest album “Shadow Painter” starting with a limited release this Spring. Its full launch is expected the Summer of 2018 and throughout Voluntour.
Additionally, if you are lucky enough to find it, check out Andrea’s “Rawferrings.” It’s a highly sought-after collection of unfixed, unmixed voice memos and demos giving you an inside look at the raw development of her musical and vocal artistic creations.

9 pm Alex Wright
A multi-instrumentalist with a voice that conjures up comparisons with Ryan Adams and Van Morrison among others, ALEX WRIGHTʼs highly anticipated second studio album, Starlight Navigator (Jan. 2014/Jim White, producer) released to considerable acclaim across all mediums throughout his home city of Louisville, KY. Tagged “a live show not to be missed” with his band The Maven Down, he garnered top album picks from both 91.9 WFPK and the LEO Weekly plus Singer/Songwriter of the Year from the Louisville Music Awards. His self produced Third Album, What is Real, was released in June of 2017
Performing in churches since age four, Alex grew up around music with his family in eastern Kentucky. He continued making music with friends and family into his teens in Appalachia, learned to harmonize with anyone and came to appreciate the simple joy of playing music around a table. Those early musical influences of gospel, folk and rock have become a hallmark of his songwriting and urban roots sound.
