Biography

THE MEMPHIS REVOLUTION

Memphis' legendary music scene has been home to many notable entertainers. The sounds that stewed in the Stax and Sun studios from the 1950s through the 1970s defined what came to be known as the genuine Memphis sound. Since the late-70s, however, the number of hit songs emerging from this locale have declined.

Enter Beau Davidson, a native Memphian who combines Memphis soul with Hollywood flair. Raised in the traditions of gospel music and those embodied by Elvis Presley, Al Green, Booker T. and the M.G.'s, and Otis Redding, Beau has written a repertoire of music reminiscent of the old Memphis sound infused with modern inflections that uniquely unify his many disparate influences.

Beau began studying voice in Memphis with Bob Westbrook, who coached him and Justin Timberlake at the same time. He then pursued classical studies at Northwestern University, moving to Los Angeles shortly after graduation. His first live show in Los Angeles was held on November 11, 2005 at the reknowned Key Club on the Sunset Strip. Over the next few months, Beau will be appearing throughout Los Angeles and at various music festivals across the country.

Beau is now poised to take the music industry by storm, recording much of his music at Chartless Studios in Malibu. Through his talent, Beau is effectively crafting a classic sound with an individualism that celebrates the merits of musical authenticity while embracing commercial appeal.

"Without a song, the road would never bend. Without a song, a man ain't got a friend. Without a song, the day would never end, so I'll keep singing a song."

Lyrics

More Than I Can Give

Written By: Beau Davidson

Oh she loves me
and oh how I love her
never thought I'd find someone else above her
she is lovely
oh what a pleasure
The lazy days and nights I know I'll treasure
so forgive me if I'm wrong
but I don't think I'm the one

Cause she wants more,
more than I can give
In spite of everything
and I know I'm not to blame
and I know that what she wants from me is more than I can give

She held my heart
in the palm of her hand
but a heart must be carefully handled
I thought I gave her
everything within me
my heart gave what it could but now it's empty
so forgive me if I love her
but I don't think I'm the one

Cause she wants more,
more than I can give
In spite of everything
and I know I'm not to blame
and I know that what she wants from me is more than I can give

Well I guess love is not enough
to save us from our fate
is two years not enough
or how much longer must I wait?

Cause she wants more,
more than I can give
In spite of everything
and I know I'm not to blame
and I know that what she wants from me is more than I can give

She's Not You

Written By: Beau Davidson

She sits down at a table for two
She plays with ringlets in her hair
She sighs and smiles in succession
Her beauty never doubted anywhere
But she...

She pours her wine like a feather
Her hands are soft, her lips are sweet
She tells me things I long to hear
She could make my heart complete
But she's not you

The smell of her sweet perfume
The sound of her laughter in my head
The way she looks at me at night
The tender words that she has said
But she...

She never cries without reason
She never breaks my heart in two
She doesn't have the same expressions
She never holds me like you do
And she's not you

Well she has a way that I can't define
But she never makes me want to lose my mind
I try to find reasons why I need her more than you
But I know in my heart, God help me, she'll never be you

And she's not you, oh no...
She's not you
