The distance between a sure bet and a Mystery is adventure fueled by trepidation. Award winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Davis works the lesser-worn corners of the American musical fabric through an unconventional lens. Slide banjo? Yep. Detuned guitar made of metal and an electric cigar box? Ok, let’s do this. From “searing slide guitar” (Country Weekly) in the Southern country-blues vein ala Duane Allman, to grooving poetic tunes that swing from fingerstyle folk-grass to gritty Americana and soulful Rock N Roll, Davis has been described as a “truly phenomenal songwriter” (About.com). He draws from his rural Kentucky roots as much as his love for the Western landscape and the colorful characters that inhabit them. The rootsy nature of these transmissions is compounded by fervent texture experts that steer the dynamic touring band, Aaron Davis & The Mystery Machine.
