Hardened and Tempered

Sad songs dress pretty.


The Trailer Sessions is Hardened and Tempered’s debut album, produced by Grammy award winning producer and Austin City Limits Hall of Fame member, Lloyd Maines. Influenced by Davidson’s time living in a trailer on the Texas-Mexico border, The Trailer Sessions explores the mythology of the open road and the haunting relationships between person and place. The songs imagine stark landscapes and protagonists at lonely moments when they must decide, should I stay or do I go? Maines shares his instrumental virtuosity and brings together a small cast of some of Austin’s finest (Richard Bowden, Jane Gillman, Riley Osbourn, Terri Hendrix, Bukka Allen, and Pat Manske), weaving new characters of sound into the stories to reassure the listener that, with music, no one is ever really alone.
