Whether Guy Davis is appearing on Late Night TV programs or nationally syndicated radio shows, in
front of 25,000 people at Madison Square Garden, or an intimate gathering of students at a Music
Camp, Guy feels the instinctive desire to give each listener his ‘all’. His ‘all’ is the Blues. Guy can tell
you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they’re days as track linemen, and of their
interactions with the KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York
suburbs, the only cotton he’s personally picked is his ‘BVDs’ up off the floor. He’s a musician,
composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman. The blues
permeates every corner of Davis’ creativity.
Throughout his career, he has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and
bringing them to as many ears as possible through the material of the great blues masters, African
American stories, and his own original songs, stories and performance pieces. In 1993 he performed
Off-Broadway as legendary blues player Robert Johnson in Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil. He
received rave reviews and became the 1993 winner of the Blues Foundation’s “Keeping the Blues
Alive Award”. Looking for more ways to combine his love of blues, music, and acting, Davis created
material for himself. He wrote In Bed with the Blues: The Adventures of Fishy Waters - an engaging
and moving one-man show. The Off-Broadway debut in 1994 received critical praise from the New
York Times and theVillage Voice. Of Davis’ live performance, one reviewer observed that his style
and writing “sound so deeply drenched in lost black traditions that you feel that they must predate
him. But no, they don’t. He created them.”
These days, Davis concentrates much of his efforts on writing and performing his Blues music. He
has released nine albums for Red House Records, all of which have garnered rave reviews and
praise, as well as earning awards and other special nods. Perhaps Charles M. Young summed up
Davis’ own take on the blues best when he wrote his review in Playboy, “Davis reminds you that the
blues started as dance music. This is blues made for humming along, stomping your foot, feeling
righteous in the face of oppression and expressing gratitude to your baby for greasing your skillet.
