Sarah Davidson (album)
Fans of the TNT reality series Private Lives of Nashville Wives have some familiarity with Sarah, who’s one of the cast members, and know that her music is an integral component.
If, however, you have little knowledge, this six-song EP serves as a fine introduction. Even in six tracks, Sarah manages to show enough versatility as a vocalist and give listeners some insight into her personality.
The single “Drink You Up” is the likely standout, a sweetly romantic tune built around a lady who loves everything about her guy, even the rip in his jeans and his confident ability to stare at the sun without blinking (a trait we never considered when calculating one’s “cool” factor).
“Get Out” is slightly more delicate on the vocal side. Contrast those with the brash and bold “Bright Lights Big City,” basically the theme song to the series, and you do form a fairly clear picture of her range.
One particular cut, “Ride Around,” doesn’t quite measure up, though. It’s another one of those summery tunes about, you know, those “feet on the dashboard” (please, a moratorium on this phrase) days that 20-something artists just seem to relish.
Overall, this is a solid effort that should garner Sarah some attention outside the realm of reality TV.
