John William Davis
“Wandering through the halls during a music conference last fall, I was drawn like a moth to a flame by some funky finger picking, striking melodies, and clever lyrics . . . John William Davis is a writer who deserves more than passing comparison with the likes of Randy Newman and Tom Waits, albeit with slightly stronger connection to blues and folk roots than either of those guys. Davis has the same kind of eye and ear though . . . An ability to take snapshots of the world around us and the peculiar characters who inhabit it with clever, razor sharp wordplay . . . I’m finding him as my favorite songwriter at the moment” Mark D. Moss, Editor, Sing Out! Magazine
“The number of people I'd recommend to your house concert series I can count on both hands. I've recently added John William to that admittedly small group.”
Jack Williams, South Carolina songwriting and guitar playing legend
Opening: Dylan Sneed
"Like a sober Townes Van Zandt." - Columbia Free Times
"Sneed is a terrific songwriter who knows how to turn a phrase and plays a mean acoustic guitar." No Depression
