Thursday To-Do: Elise Davis

ELISE DAVIS
9 p.m., Juanita's. $6.

It's not 15-year-old Tanya Tucker singing “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone),” but when 19-year-old singer/songwriter Elise Davis sings, “I tried my whole life to be someone who you would love,” a blip of skepticism passes through. Really? Your whole life? But then again I've got Davis' bio. Judged only by her rich voice and breezy, open-road arrangements (courtesy of the fellas at Blue Chair Studios, who've put out a diverse handful of some of Arkansas's strongest releases in the last couple of years), Davis sounds mature well beyond her years. And judged even by her resume — two albums already under her belt and a third, “Another Lonesome Romance,” releasing on Thursday — she's farther down the road to Sheryl Crow-dom than virtually all her 19-year-old peers. Fittingly, the show is open to all ages.
