Platinum-certified Country artist, songwriter and Producer Dan Davidson has kicked off a new chapter of his work with the release of his 80’s-infused new single “If These Streets Could Talk.” Blending the sounds of 80’s synths and electric guitars with a spacey pedal steel and mandolin, Davidson melds Country and Pop sounds on the track. It also suggests the direction for his next record, Nineteen Eighty Something, slated to arrive later this year.
I’m SO excited to get this out to the world. This single marks the beginning of probably my most creative record to date. It pulls in vibes from the 80s explores a totally new side of my writing. I think it’s an artist’s duty to the fans to try their best to not repeat themselves – and I kept that in mind while writing this song with my friends Tim Hicks and Dave Thompson!
After nearly a decade of playing with Canadian Indie Rock band Tupelo Honey, Dan Davidson made his entry onto the Canadian Country scene in 2016 with the release of his second single “Found” (co-written by Clayton Bellamy of The Road Hammers). It went on to become certified Platinum in Canada. Since then, the artist has seen 7 CCMA Award nominations, and 10 ACMA awards.
Recently performing at the UK’s C2C Festival, Davidson is gearing up for a big year ahead with more international touring and summer festival plays. After a run of summer dates and closing out Boots & Hearts Music Festival in August, Davidson is headed back to Australia to perform two nights at Aussie country festival The Gympie Music Muster.
