Can't Get There from Here
A nice slice of Americana, Can't Get There From Here is nothing short of a beautiful piece of work. Singer, songwriter, great guitarist and extraordinary storyteller, Davis Coen manages to blow away the fog and tell it like it is. Folk, blues and country blend for a sound that is warm and comfortable as my old denim. Bottom line...Davis Coen is the real deal. Twenty-nine and based out of Charleston, South Carolina, Coen sings what he knows, directly from the heart. While better than half of the CD's tunes were written by Coen, he manages to take possession of the well-chosen covers, giving them his own twist, while showing the utmost respect for the original authors. Davis shows a deep love and knowledge of the Blues. This is much more than a musical style: it is the essence of life. Nothing profound here, just life on life's terms. This is real, real powerful and directly from the heart. It's also easy on the ears. Who could ask for more? Can't Get There From Here is about as good as it gets. If you're looking for the latest fad, pass this one by. Davis Coen is here to stay. - Bill Wilson Billtown Blues Association.
