Good morning, musical friends!
Today, I bring you the music of Karl W. Davis and The Sweetpeas! Their latest release, “It’s High Time”, is garnering critical acclaim in the U.S. and abroad, and marks a fresh beginning in the career of this fire-and-brimstone gospel/blues powerhouse. Karl W. Davis was born in Folkston, Georgia, a small rural community with deep roots in the blues and gospel sounds. The kind of influences you may hear on “It’s High Time” will remind you some of the soul and gospel greats, like Al Greene, Syl Johnson and Harvey Watkins Jr.
I gotta say, my fave track from this CD is “You Can’t Keep A Good Man Down”. With sexy, soulful vocals, combined with those fabulous horns, the female vocals are divine and Karl’s voice is right on point! This song, to me, epitomizes just what this artist is all about.
I played the Karl’s CD while I was making dinner and doing some chores and found myself dancing around and wishing my husband would hurry home from work! Lol!
Here’s what Karl says, “For me this album represents a brutally honest reaction to the end of a fifteen-year marriage. We wrote 20 songs over a two month period and the ones that ended up on the new release were the songs where the lyrics came entirely at one sitting. These were just the most honest. We decided to choose these six and give them the best production we could manage instead of twelve songs with a watered down effort. Since this would be our calling card I think this was the best way to make a good impression right from the start.”
