    The Ashley Davis Band - When the Stars Went Out

    www.ashleydavisband.com

    Ashley Davis’s latest album, When the Stars Went Out, is her most challenging and creative yet. The first album Davis composed in partnership with her touring band (The Ashley Davis Band) it blends the skill and influences of renowned multi-instrumentalists Dave Curley, Colin Farrell, Will MacMorran, and Duncan Wickel. Ashley’s long-time producer Gawain Mathews led production with the band. While the album’s country roots style documents an expanding American folk music tradition, the details in individual lyrics carve out a personal space of emotive expression: “If you’re from a roots background,” Davis explains, “you start to crave that space, the quiet and the purity of it.”

    The AD Band also embraced the added challenge of recording virtually, under lockdown, which became an experiment in modern songwriting. With each track recorded from the artists’ homes, there was a natural volleying of creativity as the songs were built piecemeal from distant places. As the album grew, so did its virtual network as many artists from the American Roots, Irish, and Irish - American music world lent their talents to the project. Some of the names from that group are: Heidi Talbot, Tim O’Brien, Tony Furtado, Kevin Crawford, Mick McAuley, Shane Hennessy, and Grammy-award winner Shawn Colvin.

    When the Stars Went Out is an album of diverse personalities, linked cohesively by Davis’s poetic, powerful vocals. It is also a living, singing archive of the pandemic, of sharing creativity together while exploring those tender, pensive moments of isolation.

    When the Stars Went Out will be released on 1 September 2020, with the option of pre-order and downloads from August 1st.

Verse 1 What are words when left inside a heart I wrote to you, I always played my part I go to bed each night and think You'll be beside me in the morning light But all that's left there is the spacing For the words that maybe you would write But after all.... ​ Chorus Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet When I left a place for you to tell me Everything that's wrong inside your head But dolorem ipsum is what you left instead Now the pain itself fills in the blanks And in the end there's nothing to to be said ​ Verse 2 You would like to be a hidden star Covering exits all around your heart The past is still your alibi When you were saying love is just a lie So take a drink, call out a tune And know that you didn't even try But after all.... ​ Chorus ​ Bridge But after all, after all you say now what have we got to lose? Yeah after all, after all you say this life is what we choose ​ Chorus ​ Tag Yeah the pain itself fills in the blanks And in the end there's nothing to to be said Quid novi Quid novi Quid novi ​

A shadow falls around and under I saw a cloud, I heard no thunder My head it hangs low as I wonder Oh how will I live out my days ​ How can a cloud no water streaming Like some lone voice that isn't speaking A deathly cold heart still a beating How will I live out my days ​ The only road I had to take it Search to find a doorstep still vacant A bit of news paper makes a blanket Is this how I live out my days Oh how will I live out my days ​ Stars are bright the moon is lonesome As it falls into the open Through the trees my heart is breaking Oh how will I live out my days ​ You were gone in a moment Like the dew in the morning Will I find you out a walking Oh how will I live out my days ​ Oh how will I live out my days Oh how will I live out my days Oh how will I live out my days ​
