REVIEW: Jon Davidson - Perfect Cliché

Hailing from Portland, OR, Jon Davidson is an awesome new voice in the alternative rock scene. As a very talented multi-instrumentalist, Davidson plays all the parts, writes the songs and leaves audiences spellbound with his latest album Perfect Cliché. Davidson has performed in 5 countries and over 35 states, so it’s not an understatement to say that he may be taking over the world of alternative rock right before our eyes.

The diversity on this album is definitely worth noting. Davidson demonstrates his talent through many genres from soft acoustic rock to grungier hard rock, and it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that his musical influences cover an even wider spectrum.

It Won’t Be Long is a track that sticks out as very radio friendly. Energy paired with powerful imagery gives this track a very mainstream feel and exemplifies the success that lies ahead for Jon.

Perfect Cliché, the title track is a little more laid back with an epic chorus that easily portrays why this track takes the title of the album. Once again, lyrically this song is off the charts.

For Davidson’s softer side, take a listen to What Can I Say?. The wide spectrum of Davidson’s music is demonstrated with this acoustic love song. Davidson paints a picture of love, obsession and a loss for words. It’s songs like this that show how Jon Davidson rivals all songwriters of the modern era.

The album also includes a couple of remixes, giving it a very well rounded appeal for play in all atmospheres for fans of all genres in music. The dynamics Davidson has at play on this album go from monstrously powerful, emotional, heartfelt powerhouse songs down to almost a whisper. Perfect Cliché is a musical masterpiece that is sure to be the source your next favorite song.

5 out of 5 stars
