Gorton Center LIVE Presents- Andy Davis In Concert
Join us for a beautiful evening of music “Ravinia Style” with Andy Davis. Louisiana-born Andy Davis broke onto the scene in 2004 with a charming, acoustic debut called “Thinks of Her,” that quickly spread among college campuses nationwide. Based in Nashville, TN then, Davis quickly hit the road opening for artists such as Jakob Dylan, Colbie Caillat, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, needtobreathe, and more, collecting fans one city at a time.
Since then, Davis has released six studio albums, including two produced by Mitchell Froom (Randy Newman, Crowded House, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow), one of which was made possible by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $41,000 in 30 days. Davis was also a founding member of the “Ten Out of Tenn,” a critically-acclaimed collective of Nashville singer/songwriters (Griffin House, Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones, Andrew Belle, etc) who joined forces in super-band fashion for a collaborative tour, documented in the award-winning film, “Any Day Now.”
A multi-instrumentalist with old-school charm, a 12-year track record, and a pulse for the often irregular heartbeat of human relationships, Andy Davis continues to engage longtime fans and win new ones.
Andy Davis: He’s young and got a heap of skill for his young age. Davis’s voice easily transitions from back country grit to polished pop falsetto. Andy’s acute pop-sensibility and dedication to storytelling shine through with alarming brilliance on his latest album Let the Woman, which was released and promoted in conjunction with bigHelium and Barnes and Noble. It debuted at No. 4 in the Top 100 at Barnes and Noble for weeks. -American Songwriter.com
