New Jersey-based artist Moot Davis undertook quite the journey to complete his newest album, Man About Town, travelling from Auckland to Austin to Nashville, but in the end it was all worth it – he was able to make a album that, in his words “wasn’t altered to suit anybody’s taste but mine.” Check out his smooth new single “Fade to Gold.”
Moot Davis burst onto the country music scene in the mid-2000s. With his self-titled debut, Davis delivered a set of timeless honky tonk that brought comparisons to Hank Williams Sr and prompted Entertainment Today to describe Davis as “primed to be the leader in the new insurgent country music scene.”
Another big moment for Davis was when his song “Whiskey Town” landed a spot on the soundtrack of the movie Crash. That and nearly 20 other placements in movies and television shows have brought his music to a wide range of listeners.
“Fade to Gold” is a easy going country tune reminiscing over a lost woman. Moot Davis‘ rich vocals mesh nicely with mournful slide guitar as he weaves a narrative about a woman “who fell in love with a bullfighter over in Spain.”
