Embarking on a decade-plus journey that has resulted in a collection of justly-earned, highly introspective songs, Davey crafts pure Americana that is not of the social and political consciousness, but drawn from the deep well of experience and human emotion - no hackneyed story lines, no insincere polish, just an unflinching poet's look at life with the characters woven in seamlessly. Armed with his Gibson guitar, a battered straw cowboy hat and a no apologies rust-belt work ethic, Davey puts rubber to asphalt, entertaining attentive, diverse audiences at listening rooms, coffeehouses, nightclubs, festivals, colleges and universities throughout the Northeast, Midwest, and Atlantic U.S. - performances that result in engagement and communion between performer and audience through story and song. The hard work has paid off with recognition by way of a New Folk Finalist Selection at The 2013 Kerrville Folk Festival, an Official Showcase Selection at the 2011 Folk Alliance Conference, a 2015 NERFA Suzi Wollenberg DJ Showcase Selection and coveted opening act slots for Amy Speace, Tracy Grammer, Eilen Jewell, Cheryl Wheeler, Elizabeth Cook, Suzanne Vega, Eric Andersen, The Kennedys, and Kim & Reggie. Davey's songs are born from a work ethic instilled by a factory working father; steeped in time, then written like a conversation with your next door neighbor and as comfortable as a well-worn pair of shoes. These are the stories of American life. Songs of labor, love, laughter, sorrow, life and death, baptized in waters drawn from a deep and timeless well. His is a journey dedicated to the craft of drawing the line that connects our common humanity. With each tale another slice of life examined.
