GUY DAVIS

08

JAN

2016

Guy Davis is the son of legendary actors and civil-rights activists Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Since the release of his first few critically acclaimed albums during the 90’s, Davis has been considered a major blues talent and champion of the traditional roots blues sound; often incorporating banjos, 12-string acoustic guitars and mandolins to his compositions. Guy has continued the important tradition of storytelling and is among a group of artists contributing to the much needed role of folk music in the blues genre that has been lacking since the days of masters like Leadbelly, Josh White and John Hurt. Guy is also a journeyman who has followed in the family business to fulfill his passion for acting on major Hollywood films, television and Broadway. Following the release of his new album, Kokomo Kidd, he was featured on the cover of the Living Blues Magazine.
