INTRODUCING DREW DAVIES
ABOUT DREW DAVIES
“Why can’t we just be cowboys, riding through the deserts of the Wild West, on steel horses?”
In this strange, dystopian and technicolored era where experience and authenticity are top dollar, Drew Davies delivers as an original sonic explorer…Having toured the continent of heavy metal and gained underground notoriety, Drew Davies staunchly claims new territory as he begins the writing of Holloway Nights.
There is a heavy tenderness about his new work, even with his son-of-a-bitch wild screams and the occasional power chord; the lo-fi beats, dusty funk licks and Roland Juno join forces to create something as intimate as it is expansive. Occasionally breaking through his grand analog ensemble is something hopeful and almost tangible - a wholesome sound imbued with the musical traditions and legacy of his family and the rural communities of Yorkshire.
Like the steel city where he was born, this music is being forged well and made to last…Just like on his first musical odyssey, Drew Davies is guaranteed to resonate. Come join him on this journey...
