New Online Series "Sun Studio Sessions"

I went there a couple of years ago and I loved it

In 1953, Memphis blues singer Junior Parker recorded "Mystery Train" at the fledgling Sun Studio. Two years later, Elvis Presley recorded the same song there. Last week, a new version of "Mystery Train" featuring Vermont roots-rocker Grace Potter with her band, the Nocturnals, performing live at Sun, surfaced on the Internet.

The performance launched "Sun Studio Sessions" (, a new online video series created by music blogger Jeff Davidson (

"Grace and the guys were the first to come in. They have such a great connection with each other, I wanted to catch that," says Davidson. The series will also feature Adam Levy (guitarist for Norah Jones), Brooklyn-based singer and acoustic guitarist Amber Rubarth, Memphis blues-pop singer Amy LaVere, English troubadour David Ford, and Boston roots band Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles.

Though the series emphasizes upcoming artists, Davidson e-mailed an invite to U2's management (U2's "Angel of Harlem" was recorded at Sun Studio 20 years ago). So far, he hasn't gotten a reply.

Each session is edited into segments between four and seven minutes, with a new clip airing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, all free to watch.

As a music fan, Davidson is thrilled to be a part of Sun Studio's considerable history and maybe even add to it. During the Nocturnals' session, Potter was inspired to write a new song, "Jesus Was a Runaway." It was recorded then and there, giving the series an exclusive, and Sun Studio once again produced a new song.
