Davey Beige And The Blackdoor Band To Release Album ‘Beginner’s Mind’ On September 29.
At one time, over a dozen beige suits filled Davey Beige’s wardrobe. A majority of this historic menswear collection featured fawn safari suits, the genesis for his stage name. This was back in the day when he and his band The Peter Stuyvesant Hitlist were one of the must-see bands in town.
Davey’s name still remains, however the safari suits have been upgraded for rock’n’roll threads and brown suede boots.
With over thirty years of professional experience as a guitarist, songwriter, singer, teacher, columnist and performer, Davey has worked with many notable New Zealand artists including John Rowles, Bunny Walters, Fiona McDonald, Peter Urlich, The Topp Twins, Dave McArtney, Harry Lyon and Don McGlashan.
Supported by the all-star cast of The Backdoor Band, Davey’s new album ‘Beginner’s Mind’ is set for release on September 29.
The songs as well as the musical performances on it are influenced by his life in the Bay of Plenty, and a recent discovery of mindfulness – Davey’s commitment to living well and living in the moment.
|What Others Say About Davey Beige…
Great song! And especially funny if you’re in the right mood. Really loved your set at The Rogue Stage the other week. Please keep up the humour! – Jonathon Hagger, fan
Any student of acoustic soul will surely enjoy this learning experience. Beige plays alternative-tuned guitar and adds harmonica alongside a band of very experienced, gently-grooving cohorts, for an instrumentation that is right for the lyrically soul-full album that is ‘Fold in Two’. This album unfolds with time, revealing more of its well-recorded simple pleasures and developing its charm on repeat listenings. – Don Late, NZM
Humourous, yet poignant, great connection with the audience. His blues/jazz fusion style is the perfect accompaniment to his penned originals. Highly recommended! – Karin Vincent, The Rogue Stage
