ROY DAVIS: Grey Town

ROY DAVIS: Grey Town

Davis writes simple tales of broken-hearts and big dreams. While he sound is closer to Ryan Adams or Clem Snide's Eef Barzelay, Davis cites The Rolling Stones, Adams, The Drive-By Truckers and Nirvana as major influences. You can hear that in his emotional honesty of his songs. The album stays on a low musical country/folk simmer, forcing you to feel the words and his emotional turmoil. Just 21, Davis showcases a songwriting talent and a weariness beyond his years. -- Jeff Weiss, Miles of Music (self-released)
