Suzanne O. Davis re-creates the sound and vibe of a 1970s Carole King concert when Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 8 pm.
Tickets are $29-$49.
Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of piano and vocals, just as they were. Davis's performance will take you on a journey back to those great recordings.
Tapestry not only presents the record-breaking, Grammy winning album of the same name, but is a retrospective of the iconic songwriting team of Goffin and King, and her hits that continued into the 70's. This prolific team wrote chart-topping hits for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vee, The Beatles, James Taylor, the Drifters, Donny Osmond.and the list goes on.
Suzanne O. Davis is very fortunate to be known as one of the busiest and most talented musicians in Ontario. Her career's journey has taken her across the globe from the Middle East to Texas to Cuba performing as a keyboardist, vocalist, and tribute artist. Her versatility keeps her in demand, and involved in all aspects of a musician's life. Music has always been a driving force in her life as a vocalist, flute player, pianist, teacher, and high energy performer.
Not only does Suzanne channel the characteristics of Carole at the piano, but her comfortable stage presentation really endears her to the audience.
"I really like to have fun and talk 'with' the audience about the history of the songs," Davis said. "I think people want to feel that we're all sharing these moments together.and we are."
She also feels that the importance of this show is not to be an over-the-top flashy spectacle, but an organic and respectful salute to a musical icon that has had so much influence on popular music.
"The real Carole King fans are loving the show, totally appreciate that we keep it real, and get the fact that I bring the vibe of Carole with me onstage", says Suzanne. "The band and I feel that from the audience within the first song. Performing the Carole King catalogue is a perfect match for my abilities and experience. When I play and sing this music at the piano, I feel like I've really found my spot."
Suzanne has certainly played enough shows to know when it's really working and hitting home with the crowd. "The audience seems to want to go with me on this musical journey during these concerts. I've waited several years to be able to have the time to put this show together, and the time is right, and the time is now."
