April 7, 2017; Liverpool, NS: Queens Place Emera Centre and the Region of Queens Municipality are pleased to announce that Kentville, NS native Kevin Davison will take the stage to open for Tom Cochrane and Red Rider this June 28! The June 28th show at Queens Place Emera Centre is the only show Cochrane and Red Rider will perform in Nova Scotia.
Davison’s star continues to rise on the music scene and it may be noted that he is ‘Making Music and Saving Lives’. Jumping into the music scene with both cowboy-booted feet in 2009, he found himself in Nashville within a year in recording sessions with some of the best musicians in North America. With a career as a paramedic in his small hometown of Kentville, NS under his belt, Davison has recently made the switch from full time paramedic to a full time musician. He has dedicated his life to helping others while always carrying a tremendous passion for music.
Life’s journey has brought him to a place in time where music is taking a front seat. Davison has been nominated twice by Music Nova Scotia and the East Coast Music Association for country recording of the year, over the past few years. He was also nominated last year at the Josie Music Awards in Nashville, and was also chosen as one of six country acts to participate in the Atlantic Discovery Program in 2015 with the Canadian Country Music Association.
Davison has had a whirlwind year, from performing at the late Constable Wynn's funeral in Alberta for 8,000+ first responders, the Prime Minister and a tv viewership of over 5 million; to hitting the Cavendish Beach Music Festival stage in Charlottetown, PEI and the first annual Canaan Country Music Festival with Brett Kissel.
His first single from his latest album, Only Human (released April 30th, 2015) was added to over 45 mainstream stations nationwide, and he has been featured on numerous radio stations, and television broadcasts - from Canada AM to CTV News and what seems like everything in between.
In February of this year (2017), Davison released the highly anticipated video for his single "When Those Sirens Are Gone." After six weeks, he received hundreds of messages from first responders around the world about the seriousness of PTSD, and has a whopping 225,000 views on YouTube.
Davison will be traveling from coast to coast in Canada and to the USA for shows in 2017. "I love where my career as a musician has ended up. I can play high energy country shows and still, at times, talk about my long career as a paramedic. I really have the best of both worlds", he said.
