Darrin Davis

“One of the most exciting and engaging acts to come out of the Toronto scene today.” Caroline Brooks, Juno-award winner, The Good Lovelies

Fireside Folk to warm your bones, the music of North Americana singer/songwriter Darrin Davis wraps itself around you like a favourite sweater, slowly drawing you in to a world of rich, earthy storytelling and fine musicianship.

Paired with his classically trained, honey-voiced wife and bandmate Amy Jefferies, the couple harmonizes with an intimacy that whispers of many winter nights cozied up in a cabin, singing old folk tunes by the fire. BD Hughes of the Toronto Independent Music Awards describes their sound as “a unique mix of folk, rock, roots, experimental alt-country and jazz, all infused with brilliant songwriting and beautiful harmonies.”

With echoes of Guy Clark, Jason Isbell, Patty Griffin, Sturgill Simpson, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch combined with vanguard jazz instrumentalists such as Coltrane and Lester Young, this music is described by CBC radio’s Mark Rheume as “Astoundingly beautiful.”
