Davin's music is more "black water" than "red dirt". That's probably because he grew up watching his father play guitar on lake banks in North Louisiana and South Arkansas. He came to Texas in 1978, at age 13. He was prompted to play guitar by his father with a $100 bribe. He got his first electric guitar with that money. Through the 80's, he played honky-tonks, covering Hank Jr. and Lynyrd Synyrd as well as top 40 country songs. His '95 recording debut caught the attention of Gary P. Nunn. Gary's "Roadtrip" CD included four of Davin's original songs. With a little credibility, Davin started running with other notable songwriter/entertainers such as; Larry Joe Taylor, Tommy Alverson, and Brian Burns and Jesse Dayton. "We helped the Texas Music scene get kick started from a dead 80's market, says Davin". Davin has had his songs recorded by many of those song-writing buddies. He has landed songs in movies, TV, and advertising campaigns. He has also sang jingles, played, and produced many other projects. 15 years later, Davin has 7 CD's under his belt. He plays over 100 shows a year. The shows range from solo acoustic to full band. Davin is also known for hosting a songwriter show in Old Town Spring, Texas, every Wednesday night, 10 years running!

I had a chance to listen to Davin this weekend at the Hill Country Bar in Meridan. A southern blues sound that is played with intense emotion. Our group travels and supports alot of music and Davin and Cletus put a hell of a birthday bash, we will continue to support Davin and the sound that we love to hear.

not being a huge fan of country music but loving the southern and folk sound, i couldnt help but to get turned on by Davin's music when he played in Conroe, Texas. His blues riffs and the emotion in his words keeps him out of music catigories and makes him a true musician. dont pass on an opportunity to see him or hear him!

Well, the first song I heard by this man was Magnolia...seein' how my name is Maggie, you know I fell in love with this artist. What I relly enjoyed about the song was the "get down" harmony at the end

We had Davin and his band at a private party and we thoroughly enjoyed him---so enthusiastic and heartfelt as an entertainer. His latest, Palmer Lake,is outstanding. You will want to listen to it over and over!

This guy will amaze you. He is fun and entertaining at every show I have been to. He will take you on a road trip with his songs. I like when he takes me to New Orleans, musically that is, to a house of questionable reputation and lets me see with his voice the kind of ladies doing the kind of things I like to see them do. Yes this boys can drag you throught the swamp and make you smile. As a one man show he kicks ass.
