After releasing three albums of self-penned songs Tanya-Lee Davies turns her attention to a long time love affair with the boy/ girl duet & has recorded a sonic shrine to the co-mingling of the male/female voice. Fourteen men, one girl, some of Melbourne's most glorious musicians traverse highways and heartache, love gone wrong and right, tears and joy, thrills and epics spills; written by some of the worlds favourite tunesmiths.
The Duetting Damsel
"There's been some great albums released in 2018, but one I keep coming back to is 'The Duetting Damsel' by Tanya-Lee Davies, this album has been a constant companion. A range of classic compositions, rub shoulder with the relatively obscure and the pleasingly unexpected. 'The Duetting Damsel' is an absolute delight. Fourteen slices of sweet heartbreak and desperate love from a dynamic damsel."

My latest offering The Duetting Damsel has arrived.
She's crawled across desert sands, climbed mountain ranges and courted fourteen men to get here. I've always loved the male / female voice as dancing partners so I've built a shrine to the sonic bliss of the boy girl duet. Fourteen love gone wrong songs, love going right songs, heartache and joy, tears and highways, thrills and epic spills.
Here are a few teasers from the duets album... Andy Baylor and I doing one of Hank Williams' most melancholy and beautifully bereft songs, a Beatles tune I sang with Steve Lucas and This Old Heartache a Lucinda Williams song that I recorded with Matt Walker in his studio in Upwey. Lucinda out did herself the day she wrote this one.
The band behind the songs behind the men behind the girl are Sam Lemann, Rick Plant, Ash Davies and Monique Di Mattina. You'll hear Andy Baylor playing fiddle on our track too.
You'll also find a few songs from various albums. Wavelength and Beautiful Thing are from Superdarling
Wondering is from my EP Bloom.
