In early 2008, after several years spent in Washington D.C. bands like Q And Not U and Georgie James, John Davis decided he was ready to go out and start writing and recording albums on his own. John began work on the songs that were to become the first Title Tracks album in January 2008, as the unhappy fate of Georgie James became clear. By the time that Georgie James officially split up in the summer of 2008, John had an album’s worth of songs ready to go and began playing shows with a new group behind him by the end of that summer.“It Was Easy” is the debut full-length from Title Tracks, John’s solo project. It contains nine original songs and two covers (Bruce Springsteen’s “Tougher Than The Rest” and The Byrds’ “She Don’t Care About Time”). The originals run the spectrum from the taut, angry “Every Little Bit Hurts,” “Found Out” (both of which, in different recordings, were released as a single on Dischord Records in April 2009) and “Piles Of Paper” to the sunnier “Hello There” and “Steady Love” to the melancholy “At Fifteen,” “No, Girl” and the title track.
