Nick Tressler Raised Rowdy Founder
Ok, so it’s March and we usually are chest deep in sports right now via the overabundant media coverage of March Madness, but with the world in lock-down and sports on hiatus, Alec Davis decided to do his own kind of March Madness. He decided to release a new song EVERY Friday all month long.
Alec is a former SEC athlete and Missouri native and his sound lives somewhere between old honky-tonk music, current country and southern rock. It is just weird enough to keep me turning back to it to pick up something I might have missed on a previous listen.
This week’s single is called You Would Be Mine” and it is likely my favorite of the four songs Alec is releasing this month.
“You Would Be Mine” speaks of the angst and inner struggle of approaching someone out at the bar or other meeting place and how often you put the cart before the horse and start thinking about how your life would be together. Sometimes that kind of planning ends in a fiery mess, but for the character in the track it ends up working out. “You Would Be Mine” goes on to tell that spark story of found love, but also about the life the couple created together.
I am not sure if the track is all written kind of in the idea space of a “what if” or if at some point it turns from thought to reality, but what I do know is, this track, as well as all the track’s Alec has been releasing recently, have a tone and vocal performance that is strictly Alec’s. So Here is his newest track a day before you can hear it anywhere else:
