Joining forces with Australian multi-Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence, The Davisson Brothers Band today release their new duet ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ via Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
Music stars around the globe and of all genres have been coming together for decades to make music and The Davisson Brothers Band are no different—with one exception. They created a transcontinental collaboration during COVID-19 using the video conferencing application Zoom. The result is a feel-good, upbeat song to inspire the world.
The Davisson Brothers and Amber Lawrence became friends and fans of each other back in 2018 during the time the band’s first single ‘Po Boyz’ hit the top of the Australian radio charts. The brothers have often been a guest on Amber Nights, Lawrence’s weekly iHeart radio show. After an interview this past March the brothers invited Lawrence to a song writing session and added in their good friend and American hit songwriter Rob Synder. With over 10,000 miles between them and a 15-hour time difference, the unlikely foursome connected on Zoom and the rest is history.
Chris Davisson explains, “We asked Amber her thoughts on writing about what artists are going through in regards to the COVID-19 lockdowns on live performances. She immediately said ‘Yes.’ She even had a title and lyrics in mind.”
Donnie Davisson adds, “She sent us back the song title ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ and we shared it with Rob and the wheels went into motion. We all got on the Zoom call and boom, this song came out of nowhere like a freight train! The melody just fell from the sky. It was a meant to be kinda moment.”
Written by The Davisson Brothers, Amber Lawrence and Rob Synder and produced by Dan Frizsell, ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ was a labour of love. Everyone at each end of the world did their part to capture quality sound to make it a world-class production. The collaboration included one hundred tracks, eight different acoustic guitar parts with guest musician Bryan Sutton, who wrote and played guitar, banjo, and mandolin parts.
“I’m thrilled that the end result of a Zoom song writing session is the recording and release of this amazing song - an inspiring memo that we’re all in this together, no matter where we are in the world," says Amber Lawrence.
“We cannot wait for everyone to hear this track,” says Chris Davisson. “We recommend everyone listening to this at high volume and a lot of bass! We wish nothing but good to everyone and we hope this brightens someone’s day when they hear it. That’s all this song was meant to do - bring positivity to the world. Please stay tuned for the music video as well.”
