At the crossroads of the cosmic stylings of The Grateful Dead and the vulnerable sonic truths of Todd Snider lies Ben Davis Jr.: a genre-defying songwriter with a psychedelic-alt. country four-piece brewed in the creative pressure cooker of Appalachian Ohio.
Before the Revelry, there was Ben Davis Jr. performing solo all over the Mid-Ohio Valley. It was Davis’ authentic performances all along the banks of the Ohio River that landed him a spot on the 2014 Nelsonville Music Festival bill after his first release, “The Day After Payday”.
Shortly after sharing the 2014 NMF bill with the likes of The Avett Brothers and Jason Isbell, Davis met fabled producer and musician Eddie Ashworth (Great White, Sublime, Qiet) while playing a gig in Athens, OH. That fortuitous meeting led to Ashworth recording and producing Davis’ 2016 EP, “Leaving Cincinnati”.
Fast forward several years, many gigs, and considerable periodic disillusionment with the music industry, and Ben Davis Jr. has refined and transformed his musical vision into something entirely new. He is now joined by The Revelry: Ashworth on wurlitzer and mandolin, Ben Ervin on lead guitar, Levi Westfall on bass, and Erik Miller on drums.
The Revelry is finishing up work on a new full-length, Suthernahi,a which features the leading single “Just Let Me In.” The song is a wistful cry for affection conveyed by poignant wurtlizer, atmospheric guitar work from Ervin, and Davis’ candid lyricism. The forthcoming album, due out later this year, promises to be Davis’ most potent, honest creation to date.
