Savage on the Downhill (independent)
“Every once in a while music comes along that you just know instantly that you are going to like. Amber’s melodies are more than complimented by thoughtful, interesting and honest lyrics, along with fine, understated musicianship that proves the old adage that “less is more”. The result is a set of superbly crafted, well-rounded, addictive songs that stay with you long after the last notes have ended, and make you hungry for more.” (Duncan Warwick, Country Music People Magazine, UK)
“What can I say about Amber Cross but that she will knock you over! Amber takes no prisoners!” (Ray Bonneville, Producer)
Hierarchy of Crows (independent)
Hierarchy of Crows, Davis’ fifth studio album, was recorded entirely in Hollywood, California starting back in 2014 during brief breaks from the road. There is a distinct, harder edge to the songs while still retaining his Honky-tonk & Americana roots. Moot moves into heavy riff-driven rock and roll with his fifth album, creating a lush sonic landscape of danger, loss, rebellion and wounds that will never heal.
