CD Review: Moot Davis Gets "Hot" On His New Album

Country crooner Moot Davis returns with his fourth album "Goin' In Hot," which will be released on April 15th through Crow Town Records. This album when through it troubles and tribulations of being made. Just days after Davis completed the final mixes for the album, the studio where he recorded the album and housed the music had burned to the ground. Luckily his music was not completely lost as the album's engineer was about to recover the songs from a melted computer's hard drive. Also, this album reflects Davis' recovery after the end of the a long-time relationship.

The thirteen song album beings with the title song which finds Davis continuing right where he left off as his strong, smooth vocals showcase a countrified version of Chris Isaak. He has fun with his songwriting on "Food Stamps" as the chorus becomes irresistible not to sing along to. His sound gets a little more aggressive on the country-blues of "Made For Blood" and gets personal on the relationship ending "Used To Call It Love." The uptempo rockers "Midnight Train" and "Ragman's Roll" is where Davis and his band have the most fun performing as his voice fits the music perfectly. The album closes with the warmth of the acoustic slide-guitar gold of "Wanna Go Back" and the guitar buzzing "25 Lights."

Moot Davis is currently on the road promoting the new album "Goin' In Hot." He will be heading to his home state New Jersey in mid-April, before continuing his U.S. tour. For a complete list of live dates and to find out more about his new album, please visit
