The thirteen songs reflected on Orville Davis debut CD, Howl At The Moon, reflect many experiences of his life. On stage, he's like a mustang running skittishly around the corral, long mane flying, wanting to burst loose and run with the wind. There are no pretensions. He's exactly what he appears to be - restless energy and intensity one minute followed by a joke and a laugh the next. Orville Davis is no hat act. He has not popped out of some die-cut mold like so many outlaw wannabe's. This man delivers the goods with a forthright and honest voice.
"I Keep Sayin' Never Again", "Trouble With The Law", "A Little Bit Dangerous", "Wanted: Total Stranger", and "Midnight Drive-in Show", paint a vivid picture of many experiences Orville has been through; while "Song To You", "Bare Walls", "One Last Dance", and "Blue Angel", express the pain of heartache. One of the most popular songs on the album is the title track, "Howl At The Moon", which, when performed in concert, literally leaves the crowd howling!
"Orville delivers all the songs on the album with the music savvy of a "Honky Tonk" master singer, and to realize he also wrote the songs makes your mind drift to the days when men were men and country was country!" (Rob Burrows, WFDU-FM country music producer/ on-air personality)
Country music superstar Suzy Bogguss proclaimed that "Orville sounds like a W-i-l-d Child!"
Freelance journalist Mark J. Petracca "was blown away by Orville's straight forward, no bulls**t music." Listen to his music and "share his life experience a few tears, a little laughter and a whole lot of tenderness. Orville Davis is the real deal."
Orville Davis is "the rockin'est, howlin'est, honky-tonker to come down the pike in many awhile." Orville Davis is the one to deliver "Honky Tonk with Attitude." You will find all of this on Howl At The Moon.
