The Birthplace of Country Music presents RTE 23 Listening Room Concert featuring acclaimed singer/songwriter Daniel Davis. A Wise County native and graduate of The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, Davis is well known to music fans throughout the region as principal songwriter and front man for Folk Soul Revival, one of the area’s most respected and beloved acts.
Blessed with a balladeer’s soulful vocals, Davis has a knack for penning poignant, evocative songs with roots planted firmly in the mountains of his birth. Blending the classic sounds of Yoakam and Nelson with more contemporary singer/songwriters like Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle, Davis’s craft is singularly Appalachian in both timbre and style. Over the years his music has been central to the sound of Folk Soul Revival, yet he sits on a collection of songs that have gone unrecorded by the band. The RTE 23 Listening Room will provide a sound stage for this assemblage of unreleased material and offer a new perspective on this authentic and multi-talented artist.
Davis achieved second place in the Merlefest’s prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest in 2013 for the song “Homesick.” With Folk Soul Revival Davis has released four albums, with a fifth now in production, and performed at a number of major festivals and esteemed venues throughout the Southeast including Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Floydfest, The Carter Family Fold, Asheville’s The Grey Eagle, and The Basement in Nashville.
