Overview

Add Andy Davis name to the list of contemporary piano-popsters - Ben Folds, Five For Fighting's John Ondrasik, among them - who bridge the worlds of pop and rock via the ivories. Davis may be the more versatile and accessible of the bunch. He fills his debut Let the Woman, with engaging, literate pop songs and proves himself an adept guitar slinger as well. His smoky soul-tinged voice - think Jackson Browne with some grit and a pretty falsetto - is hooky enough that it almost out-muscles his compelling wordplay on songs like the damaged "Believable Doubt" and the defiant "Our Love Is Not Their Business" (the obvious metaphors of "Black Keys" may be the only misstep here). -- Producer Mitchell Froom's stewardship is note perfect - he conjures up Daniel Lanois-worthy atmospherics in "Beautiful Day for Bad News" but keeps the focus on Davis's vocals and drama-laden hooks. There certainly are others mining this turf, but by mixing soul, classic British pop and confessional singer/songwriter styles with craftsman's ethic, he suggests a budding Elton John in the making.

Nashville-based singer-songwriter Andy Davis may appear to be just another guy with an acoustic guitar singing about his woes stemming from past relationships gone sour, but to lump him in the category of whiny musicians not worth giving a chance would be a mistake. Ever since his debut album "Thinks of Her" was released in 2004, I could tell that this guy was destined to make it to the top. The album is a mix of previously released tracks that have been re-recorded and brand new tracks that haven't been heard anywhere else. One of my personal favorites, "Earth and Venus", opens the album. In it, Davis sings "wherever you are, you're never close enough don't be afraid of love". This is wide open to interpretation, but the basic message is that we can't feel close to the one we love unless they love us in return. The title track, "Let the Woman", finds Davis singing about his longing for the woman of his dreams to magically appear in his life, playing on the frustrations we all experience in finding the love of our life and living happily ever after. "Good Life" is quite a change of pace from Davis' normal material, catching the listener by surprise with catchy opening riffs played on an electric guitar and lyrics declaring the joy of living life without worry and despair. The album closes with my personal favorite, "Union & 3rd". It's hard to tell what this song is about exactly, but listening may tell you it is a story about two young lovers that found each other unexpectedly in a large city and the tale has been fast forwarded over a few months to the point where one can think "looking out your city window, how'd we ever find each other here?" Davis' mix of raw emotion with polished vocals and solid instrumentation make this album one any lover of honestly well-done music can appreciate.

From Thinks of Her to Let the Woman, you can tell that Andy has grown so much in his music. My favorite tracks are "Union & 3rd" and "Let the Woman". The new version of "Black Keys" is also fantastic. I urge anyone who enjoys music to buy this album, and then buy lots more for Christmas gifts. Click "Add to Cart".... you know you want to.

All I can say about this album is Andy Davis didn't disappoint with this one! I was genuinely hoping for a great release with this album.. and trust me I was not disappointed! He starts the cd off with a familiar track Earth and venus which I love.. and my favorite new track has got to be Let the woman! His lyrics, music and vocal ability amaze me EVERYDAY! Love this album and would reccommend it to EVERYONE!! :)

The long-awaited album, Let the Woman, is here, and Andy Davis did not disappoint. Andy has a knack for creating catchy songs that are filled with passion and emotion, and this was no exception. He's taken a step forward from what we're used to...the title track, "Let the Woman," is a lot edgier but still filled with the AD standards we've come to love. His beautiful piano skills are prevalent throughout with a new rendition of "Black Keys," a hauntingly beautiful song with a simple melody and evocative lyrics. This is easily one of the best independent albums released this year. If you're a music lover, this is a must-have for your collection.

Fantastic album! Andy continues to grow musically with every release. His sound is continually dynamic and powerful!

Andrew's music hits universal keys and strikes global cords. He extracts the superior blood of each genre and era, transfusing an organic "Sinatra meets Mayer" sound. As "cookie cutter" artists come and go - Andrew is laying the foundation for the new generation of musical geniuses.

Andy's lyrics are intense and his music is gripping...I can't get them out of my head. I've been listening to him for a little while now, and his latest release is so much better than I thought possible...considering that it's difficult to improve when he's already released such great work on the Fine China EP and Thinks of Her. I highly recommend those, too :)

Andy has really outdone himself this time. Let the Woman is one of the best cd's I've heard this year. He has brought music to a totally different level with this cd. Everyone needs to buy it now!!

so i didnt think andy could improve on his style and last cd....and i was one of the ones who was left missing a little after the ep.....but let the woman is amazing....a good selection of his previous best---with the exception of my two personal faves hurts to watch and please turn red---bud ANDY has stepped up to the plate and released a full album of pure unadulterated AWESOMENESS!

I would definitely recommend that everyone go out and buy this CD! Andy's style is amazing throughout the whole album and includes one of my favorites "Earth and Venus." Every track is worth listening to a hundred times. "per day."

This is another outstanding album from Andy Davis. It includes a few new versions and re-releases of the highlights from Fine China, including "Earth and Venus", "Brown Eyes," "Good Life," and "Black Keys" and a live version of "Fine China". The new songs continue to exhibit Andy's ability for writing creative, poigant and real lyrics about life and love that practically anyone can relate to. Overall, this is well put together album with a fresh, original sound and would make a good addition to anyone's music collection. And if you like this, check out Andy's two early albums, Thinks of Her and Fine China.

Ever since he released the Fine China EP I've been itching for his next album. If you dig piano driven tracks, catchy lyrics, great vocal range, and the occasional acoustic melody then BUY THIS ALBUM. "Let The Woman" gets two thumbs up.

I picked this cd up in the store and it's amazing. I found that he has another cd online so I went ahead and ordered it as well. Great songwriting and soothing voice.

Once again Andy Davis has released an incredible album. As a fan of Andy's music, I couldn't ask for a better follow up to his debut cd "Thinks Of Her". The new renditions of old favorites such as "Black Keys" and "Brown Eyes" and new songs like "Believable Doubt and "Union & Third" will leave you the listener wanting more. Every fan of the singer/songwriter genre and all around great music should pick up a copy of "Let The Woman"!

Andy Davis does not dissapoint in this latest CD. His lyrics are honest and inspire emotion in every song. Brown Eyes is upbeat and hopeful. Black Keys is sadness done beautifully. It's another great set of songs.

As a big Andy Davis fan, I've been anxiously awaiting this release, and the wait was well worth it! While he creates a new sound for himself, he includes new renditions of his classics and fan favorites "Brown Eyes, Black Keys, Earth and Venus". Musically and melodically, "Beautiful Day for Bad News" is one of the...coolest songs I've heard. I don't know what else to say except that he exceeded my expections. :)

Andy's music is meaningful and heartfelt. He is truly a great artist.
