"Polished, Intelligent... an Emotional Winner"

Like contemporary musical storytellers cut from the mold of say John Bucchino, David Friedman and Stephen Schwartz, the songs of Scott Evan Davis are catching on like fire in cabaret circles. With this debut album, Davis has enlisted the help of some of cabaret and Broadway’s most popular habitants to present an album that is so polished, intelligent and, quite simply, an emotional winner. Ironically, thanks to the cast he’s assembled, it rather sounds a bit like a night at Jim Caruso’s Cast Party with so many regulars on hand. That aside, the cleverly titled opener, “Cautiously Optimistic,” perfectly sung here by Julie Reyburn, sets the stage for the pensive, sometimes sardonic songs on this quite versatile disc that is sure to get attention. Each song is invigorated with a passion that is compelling.
