Former Britny Fox Frontman Goes Country On New Single/Video
June 3, 2014
Former Britny Fox singer Dean Davidson has left his hair metal days far behind on the new country themed song “Wouldn’t Change A Thing”, the first single from the frontman’s upcoming ‘Different Roads’ album.
The Americana/folk/country album ‘Different Roads’ is slated for release on September 1st. “Me as an artist and the stories that make up the new album ‘Different Roads’ are simply about; where each song takes you that you may have experienced in your life,” said Davidson. “I’m not in this at all to be a celebrity. I’m in this because I’m doing what I love and I’m just being me. Just one man, one guitar, sharing his story through a song.”
The new musical direction is far removed from his Britny Fox days, when ‘Dizzy’ Dean Davidson and the band landed a recording contract with Columbia Records and released two MTV hits, “Long Way To Love” and “Girlschool”, which propelled their 1988 self-titled debut album to sales approaching one million copies. Shortly after the release of ‘Boys In Heat’, Davidson left Britny Fox to form Blackeyed Susan, but was without a label deal after the grunge invasion hit in the early ’90s.
The new album title ‘Different Roads’ came about when the first original title, ‘New York City Night’, and song of the same name, were originally included on the singer’s 2007 album ‘Drive My Karma’. “The new album delivers Americana/Folk/Country that’s organic and honest,” says Davidson. “I don’t write songs aiming to be a hit song. I just tell stories through songs — period. When I write the story of my life, I don’t let anyone hold the pen. It’s not about anything flashy. It’s just honest, real and simple.”
