Found Sound Holiday Revue Show

Melvin Davis – vinyl release show


The Shelter - Detroit

Chains of Love / I’m Gonna Love You

Gure Gauza

Legendary Detroit soul ambassador Melvin Davis has some new vinyl recordings ready for release – two brass-toughened, funky shufflers jumping right off the wax; what better occasion to release these singles than a Holiday Party hosted by one of the area’s most recently established record shops? Ferndale’s Found Sound Records hosts their first Holiday Revue this week at the Shelter, headlined by the tireless soul dynamo. Davis’ classic “Chains Of Love” is given new life for its vinyl debut, rhythms kicking harder, and strutting evermore stylishly to those fiery guitars and brass as he belts heartily over the roiling grooves.

Listen: "Chains Of Love" by Melvin Davis

Cymbals and tambourines, sunnier guitars and softer-drums give a poppier saunter to “I’m Gonna Love You,” sweetened with soulful backing vocals and Davis’ earnest incantations, with the forceful brass and edging bass steadily building the ballad up higher and higher. Sounds like the perfect way to let off some Holidaze stress...And bond with vinyl enthusiasts via Found Sound for their 1st Holiday Revue!


Found Sound Holiday Revue is December 20th at the Shelter in Detroit (431 East Congress) with doors opening at 8 pm ($8). Melvin Davis headlines, with openers Laura Finlay, Pink Lightning, Pat Lewis, Gabriel Brass Band, the North Pole DJs and MC Frank Woodman. More info:
