I wanted to find a way to offer a glimmer of hope and stay connected while we are all hanging out at home. The album is a passion & the video was kind of shot, 'Pandemic Style' earlier in May.
PORTLAND, OR, June 01, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- You know her as Martha Davis of the award-winning band, The Motels. While in lock down and off tour during the pandemic, Martha embraced self-isolation and focused in on releasing her stirring new Jazz Album, 'I Have My Standards'.
"I have been talking about releasing 'I Have my Standards' for years." stated Davis. "I debated on whether to release it during the Pandemic. But after long consideration of the impact and challenges Covid was having on the music industry, it was the best opportunity to stay in touch with my very patient fans." Davis continued. "I wanted to find a way to offer a glimmer of hope and stay connected while we are all hanging out at home."
From the 1970's through 2010, Martha has been writing the songs compiled on the new album, including the song 'Mr. Grey', which is also the official premiere video being released today.
Davis remarked, "The video was kind of shot, 'Pandemic Style' earlier in May. No one together in a studio or room, shot with whatever equipment was on hand and beautifully created & executed by my amazing friends Teresa & Fred Dekker. Not to mention Billy Reed and his amazing skills creating the album cover. This video could not have been possible without so many, who supported my decision."
Recorded over quite some time, with long-time friend Marty Jourard of The Motels on Tenor Sax & Piano, Allen Hunter on upright bass, Paul Pulvirente on drums, Felix Mercer on clarinet and of course Martha Davis with her sultry vocals. 'I Have My Standards' was engineered by Felix Mercer at Super Digital in Portland, OR back in 2010 and last month, Mastered by long-time friend Craig Anderton.
The digital download and streaming music releases today on familiar sites such as iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and more. Davis is also releasing the vinyl version of 'I Have My Standards' through her new record label, Remarkable Records, expected by the top of August.
