    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.

about

An original song by Ashley Davis & Shane Hennessey. A clever twist on the text place holder: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

lyrics

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
