Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams
Sad But True: The Secret History of Country Music Songwriting Vol. One

[ Universal Music / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 30 April 2021

Marlon Williams; the effortless hope, and clarity of a 21 year old wunderkid and Delaney Davidson; conjuring dust, silk and the sharp end of the stick, an international touring song writing machine.

The meeting of Williams and Davidson is an interesting and compelling mixture of the "Sad But True" cliché, twisting and turning the concept on its head and feeding them back into the Folklore machine with a seemingly random precision.

"...they spin a heady concoction of truth-seeking, love-lorn, foot-stomping stories, accompanied by guitars, piano, the occasional banjo, bass, drums, and some beautiful pedal steel...an irresistibly honest album that's anything but saccharine."
- Lydia Jenkin, NZ Herald
