Davis, High Valley dish out new sounds

Friday, March 23, 2018 – Jordan Davis of "Singles You Up" fame and High Valley are out with new discs today.

For the Louisiana-native Davis, this marks his debut. "Singles You Up" was the first single from his disc, "Home State," out today on MCA Nashville. Davis helped write the song. He has described his interests as ranging from John Prine to Sam Hunt, but adapts a more of a Hunt and Thomas-Rhett type vibe to his music.

High Valley, the Canadian duo of Brad and Curtis Rempel, is out with the seven-song EP, "High Valley: Farmhouse Sessions." They released four albums in Canada before making their U.S. debut with "Dear Life" in November 2016. The new disc, recorded in their farmhouse outside of Nashville, contains material from their U.S. debut done acoustically and has a more down home, traditional country flavor.

But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
