Suprise Me Mr. Davis

Biography

One winter, when Nathan Moore was visiting avante rock band, The Slip, in Boston, the largest snow storm since '78 hit. They were all trapped. With little more than food from the convenience store on the corner to survive on, they began playing with the new recording software on the Barr's home computer. "Surprise me," became a catch phrase that week whenever someone would get that glimmer in the eye and disappear into the headphones. If anyone asked, "what should I play," the ineveitable answer was "Surprise me!" Toward the end of the week, Nathan received a message on his cell phone from the enchanting voice of a sweet older lady with a rich accent saying, "Mister Davis, you're having fun with that recording!" (click here to hear her.) It was a wrong number but the boys loved the sound of her voice and even imported the message into the track "Snowed In". She had called someone named Mister Davis.

 Frogville was lucky enough to put out the very first SURPRISE ME MR DAVIS experimental album. The second SMMD project was recorded on their dime at Breakglass studios up in Montreal and captured some magical performances over a 3 day tracking/ 1 day mixing session on 2" 16 track down to 1/2" analog tape and wanted it to come out on vinyl only, that never quite happened but several tracks made it onto a EP entitled "Only In Montreal" which came out in a Limited Edition put out through the Slip's merchandise and count yourself lucky if you have one. Currently the band has so much new material, they are going back into the studio (2008) and plan on shopping  the new project to the majors/mini majors market, and as they are free agents under no contract, we wish them the best of luck; we think Surprise Me Mr Davis is a cross between the Beatles and the Stones with a completely modern take, and when the world catches on they will be HUGE!

Both albums are currently Out Of Print, but the first album entitled "Surprise Me Mr Davis" IS available by digital download through iTunes, Rhapsody and all the major digital outlets, here is the link to it on iTunes.
