Students at Alice Lloyd College will be privileged to see a performance by Louisville musician Andrea Davidson on Tuesday, October 11th as part of the Caney Convocation Series. Ms. Davidson’s music has been described as a combination of styles —a little bit Bob Dylan and The Beatles with some Marvin Gaye, Ray LaMontagne, and Patty Griffin to boot. That’s quite an impressive list of artists to have one’s music compared to, but Davidson’s honest, soulful, and intensely rich voice is sure to produce a memorable musical experience. She is a songwriter, penning most of the music she performs and records, and has released two albums titled Pick Your Poison and Retracing Steps. Davidson is also a humanitarian having traveled to South Africa to teach music to a school of underprivileged children and plans to use her musical gifts to inspire social change. Of this merging of an artistic and altruistic pursuit, Davidson says, “There have been countless amounts of outstanding songs and enlightening conversations that have played a part in what I write. However, I’ve been most influenced in my life by the giving and receiving of love and compassion.”
Be sure to attend this edition of ALC’s Convo Series at 1 PM tomorrow, October 11th, in the Campbell Arts Center. In the meantime, find out more about Andrea Davidson by visiting her website: http://andreadavidson.net/.
