Guy Davis once said, “I Like antiques and old things, old places, that still have the dust of those who’ve gone before us lying upon them”. Blowing that dust off just enough to see its beauty is something Guy has excelled at for over 20 years of songwriting and performing. It’s no wonder his reverence for the blues masters who’ve gone before him has been evident in every album he’s ever recorded or concert he’s given.
Guy has had his musical storytelling influenced by artists like Blind Willie McTell and Big Bill Broonzy, and his musicality from artists as diverse as Lightnin’ Hopkins and Babatunde Olatunji. However, there’s one man that Guy most credits for his harmonica techniques — that man is Sonny Terry.
Guy Davis has spent his musical life carrying his message of the blues around the world, from the Equator to the Arctic Circle. His work as an actor, author, and music teacher earmark him as both a Renaissance man and a true ambassador of the blues.
