With the November release of his solo studio album âRear View Mirrorâ (Yella Dog Records/2008), award-winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Davis breathes new life into roots music by keeping his mirror tilted towards the greats of the past while progressing into his own realm of Americana.
Based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Davis is a full-time performer and writer playing over 200 shows a year. Combining local gig residencies with tours through the Southeast, Rocky Mountains, and West Coast has created a great deal of opportunities for the Kentucky nativeâas a solo acoustic performer and with his rockinâ ensembles.
Past performances include opening slots and show bills with Wilco, Willie Nelson, Yonder Mountain String Band, Medeski Martin & Wood, Brian Wilson, James McMurtry, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Kaki King, Reckless Kelly, Ben Winship, Blue Turtle Seduction, Mickey and the Motorcars, The Woodbox Gang and Anne & Pete Sibley. He has also performed live on Wyoming Public Radio (NPR), KMTN, and KHOL in Wyoming, Revolution 91.7 in Kentucky, and other regional stations.
Being frontman for several bands over the years (The Docks, Boondocks, Global Review, Screen Door Porch, Grilled Cheese), Davis decided to tap the scene for some of his favorite musicians, who contributed great performances to âRear View Mirror.â Known for his studio work with the Rolling Stones and live performances with Miles Davis, upright bassist Bill Plummer walked the line in âLeavinâ the 9 to 5,â âFor Your Own Good,â and âWhat the Hell, Grandpa,â while mandolin master Ben Winship of Brother Mule and Loose Ties dished out licks on âPass it Onâ and âWhat the Hell, Grandpa.â The tight harmony singing of Margo Valiante is heard on eight tracks, as well as harmony from Seadar Rose and Michael Batdorf.
Opening track "1937," about life during the New Deal in Jackson Hole, received runner up honors at the 2008 Dreams Acres Music Festival Singer-Songwriter Contest in North Carolina. Alongside Brett Dennen and Xavier Rudd, Aaron also had one of his songs selected for the television series Road Trip Nation, which was featured online at MSN.com.
Chalked full of styles and textures from large, rockinâ ensembles (âMystery Womanâ) to stripped-down acoustic (âThe Cardinalâ), alt-country (âStill Drinkinâ Your Whiskeyâ) and rippinâ slide guitar (â1937â), the 12-track disc is a ride through roots-based Americana. Push play and youâll hear folk, rock, blues, country, jazz and bluegrass.
Always trying to reach the senses through lyrical groove and an expressive arsenal of sounds, his live show continues to create a buzz. While guitar is his bread and butter, Davis often layers his solo acoustic sound with a harmonica around his neck, and the occasional mandolin, banjo, kazoogle and foot percussion. Many have commented on Davisâs organic-sounding bottleneck slide and his uncanny use of alternate tunings.
In addition to vocals, Davis plays multiple instruments on the disc, including acoustic, electric, and pedal steel guitars, harmonica, bass, mandolin, washboard, jaw harp, kalimba, and an assortment of household percussion.
Other studio guests include drummers Andy Peterson and David Bundy, bassists Bryan Perkes and Marshall Davis, harmonica player John Kuzloski, pianist Matt Kramer (Global Review), trombonist John Kidwell (Chanman Roots Band, Jackson 6), percussionist Barry Lewis (Global Review) and saxophonist Jason Fritts (Global Review, Jackson 6).
