New Jazz Single From Martha Davis: “Mr. Grey”
Written by admin on January 27, 2010
In the song, Davis consoles a man attempting to drown out his sadness from losing his love. “Mr. Grey” offers the old movie atmosphere of the minimally-populated but somewhat smokey bar where men with fedoras take in a few martinis while imagining the pretty singer on stage is empathizing with them and their troubles as if they are the only two people in a small room. Martha Davis is not new to jazz, as much of her more recent work (including the acoustic recordings of 80s-era Motels music) carry a strong influence by the genre. While longtime fans of her work know how Davis can belt out a sad song, she does the opposite with “Mr. Grey” as her singing talents combine with what feels like true compassion for the lonely figure she is singing to. “Mr. Grey” is available for download via Amazon, but be warned: listening to this track will leave you in anticipation for much more old-style jazz from Davis — which might have to wait until her children’s album project is complete.
