Scotland’s Ben Davidson @BDavidsonmusic returns with the pure pop of “Learning To Let You Go”

BEN DAVIDSON, “Learning To Let You Go”

Ben Davidson is someone who can sing just about any pop song and bestow a crisp, shiny quality on the song that is a tribute to his effortless style.  The Scottish singer, also known for his Broadway roles in the UK, is back with “Learning To Let You Go”.  Like recent predecessor singles “The Chain” and “Fallin’ In”, which will also be featured on his upcoming album, “Learning To Let You Go” tells a familiar story that is part of most people’s lives.  Ben’s crystalline performance makes it all fresh, and the production throws back to a simpler time when pop music was less about dazzle and effects and more focused on a relatable story, melody and rhythm.  “Learning To Let You Go” is solid and appealing, and I’ll look forward to hearing more new music from Ben in the coming year!  Add “Learning To Let You Go” to your Thoughtful Pop playlist using the Spotify link above.

Lost in the moment: UK singer Ben Davidson @BDavidsonmusic returns with “Fallin’ In”

BEN DAVIDSON, “Fallin’ In”

You never know who was once in a boy band, and British pop music fans know Ben Davidson from his time in Most Wanted years ago.  But one thing is for sure – having that experience often generates fine singers, even if not necessarily in the style of that band.  Ben is a true pop/rock balladeer with “Fallin’ In”, another Daniel Volpe production for Energise that captures the essence of being lost in the moment where you really don’t know where you’ll be heading next.  Ben’s crisp voice leads a sublime undercurrent of classic guitar, piano and drum work.  “Fallin’ In” has many tender moments as well as a bright, anthemic quality that pervaded his previous single “The Chain”.  Watch for the remixes of “Fallin’ In” later in the week.  In the meantime add “Fallin’ In” to your favourite rock-flavoured love songs playlist on Spotify using the link above.

Honest-to-goodness Pop is delivered by Ben Davidson @bdavidsonmusic with “The Chain”

BEN DAVIDSON, “The Chain”

Every now and then, we just get a taste for pure pop music, nothing more – and someone like Sam Smith or Adele has that down in spades.  Ben Davidson is a new UK singer whose debut single out today for Energise, “The Chain”, albeit with an electronic backdrop, holds similar pop promise.  It’s written by that dynamic trio of Charlie Mason, Daniel Volpe, and Thomas Lipp, whose songs have graced these blog pages many times.  It’s a fine song choice to show off Ben’s range without going over the top.  Although it has punch, the arrangement could use a few extra wow moments to take it that much further but nonetheless it’s really all about Ben’s voice and “The Chain” succeeds overall.  Listen and add it to your playlist using the Spotify link above.  The EP contains another new song (“Letting You Go”) as well as several remixes of “The Chain”.
