Dave Davies

“The riff machine. Svengali hooks… there is but one Dave Davies”

Lead guitarist and co-founder of the legendary group the Kinks, Rock N Roll Hall of Famer Dave Davies returns to the USA for a 2017 tour, highlighting his contribution to the Kinks legacy with his revolutionary guitar sound that changed rock `n` roll and his unique writing style.

Dave will be celebrating the release of his new album “Open Road” recorded with his son Russ Davies, as well as the upcoming film “Dave Davies: Strangers” and a new solo album due for release later in the year. He will perform a set of solo hits and Kinks classics, accompanied by his accomplished band.

Dave Davies is the pioneering rock guitarist who singlehandedly changed rock-n-roll when he sliced his little green Elpico amp speaker with a razor blade, creating the first heavy metal guitar tone and riff. This revolutionary guitar sound propelled the Kinks into stardom with the global smash hits ‘You Really Got Me’ and ‘All Day and All of the Night,’ followed by numerous other classics over the next decades.

“You Really Got Me and All Day and All of the Night were predecessors of the whole three-chord guitar genre,” says musicologist Joe Harrington. “The Kinks were one of the bands responsible for turning rock ‘n’ roll into rock.”

“As lead guitarist and co-founder of the Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock,” enthuses writer Bill Crowley.

“His distinctive guitar style went on to have major impact on several key guitar-rock styles, including heavy metal and punk. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Dave’s massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day.”

Since the early 1960s, Dave has worked on a great number of critically acclaimed records, ranging from solo hit song Death of a Clown, to experimental Kinks records like Village Green Preservation Society and Arthur and the classic song Lola in 1970. Dave further helped shape the sound of the Kinks with his singing and lead guitar on songs such as “Come On Now” and the anthemic “I’m Not Like Everybody Else”. Dave’s solo output continued from the 60s to the 70s and 80s with hits like, “Susannah’s Still Alive” and tracks on Kinks records like “You Don’t Know My Name”, “Strangers” and “Trust Your Heart”. The 80s saw the release of spiritually minded AFL-13606, which featured the wonderful “Imagination’s Real”. Other albums to follow were Glamour and Chosen People. Mainstream success continued with the hit Kinks albums Low Budget and State of Confusion, as they re-attained the commercial success they previously had in America in the mid-60s, before they were unfairly banned for 4 years.

In the 1990s Dave released the solo album, Bug and the compilation Unfinished Business. His songs have been featured in films by John Carpenter and Wes Anderson, who featured Strangers in Darjeeling Limited (the song has been covered by many artists including Norah Jones). One of Dave`s most popular Kinks songs Living on a Thin Line was used in the HBO’s “The Sopranos.”

His autobiography Kink was well received in the late 1990s. In 2010 he worked with son Russell Davies to create the hauntingly beautiful rock electronica album, The Aschere Project. Dave is currently working with another of his sons, Martin, on their second documentary film Strangers, as well as a forthcoming solo album in addition to another album with Russ Davies – “Open Road.”

A BBC documentary about Dave, Kinkdom Kome came out in 2011. Dave’s 2013 album I Will Be Me on Cleopatra Records, showed a return to his groundbreaking guitar sound and songwriting. In 2013 Dave Davies also returned to touring after a long hiatus. He had spent the past decade recuperating from a life-threatening stroke. In 2014, Dave released a meditation book called Heal about his recovery in which he had to learn to walk, talk and play guitar again. His amazing return to playing live and touring in the U.S. was a triumph both creatively and spiritually as he found new inspiration for his album Rippin Up Time. Released to great critical acclaim in 2014 on Sony’s Red River Entertainment label, followed up by the live album Rippin Up New York City also on Sony’s Red River Entertainment label.

A long-time inductee of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Dave Davies expresses the power, sensitivity, magnetism and creative expression of a seasoned yet spontaneous rock-n-roll visionary.

Writer Greg Antoniono best sums up Dave Davies` massive contribution to rock `n` roll:

“The reason he’s my favorite guitarist (not to mention singer and songwriter) is that he is the best at three difficult and different things: first, -soloing, which is typically the gauge of great guitarists, but he does something even harder than being flashy just for the sake of being flashy, he crafts solos that are melodic, powerful (when they need to be) and memorable that fit the song like they were written into it. Second, Dave plays riffs/chords behind the vocal (like “No More Looking Back”) that enhance the song – amazingly hard to do (name another guitarist who does it as well!), and third, his intro riffs and licks set up the song so you want to hear the rest of the song. He’s the most complete rock guitarist bar none. And this is in addition to coming up with the legendary power chords that gave us heavy rock and roll! And I’ve been playing for 41 years and I still am in awe of his creativity.”

Glen Phillips

Glen Phillips started Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986, when he was still in high school. He was as surprised as anyone when their low-key folk rock landed them on the pop charts. When the band members decided to go their separate ways, Phillips began a solo career with Abulum followed by Winter Pays for Summer, Mr. Lemons, Secrets of the New Explorers and Swallowed by the New. Always open to new projects and unlikely collaborations, he’s toured and recorded with Works Progress Administration, a band that included members of Nickel Creek, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Elvis Costello’s Attractions; Mutual Admiration Society with Nickel Creek; Remote Tree Children, an experimental project with John Askew and Plover, with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr.

His acoustic duo tour to support Swallowed by the Newstarts in October and will continue through the spring of 2017. “I enjoy the spontaneity of acoustic performance, where I can take the show wherever it needs to go and follow the lead of an audience instead of following a set list. There’s more talking, more stories, and more of a loose feel. The subject matter is on the serious side, but I feel like the perspective is ultimately positive. Life is about changes, no matter how we may try and pretend otherwise. This album is all about learning how to face change.”

She has performed in villages across South Africa and small clubs in Japan, at Carnegie Hall, and backed up by a full chamber orchestra, as well as in hundreds of clubs and theaters throughout Europe and the US. “She has developed a unique gift of knocking down walls with songs so strong they sound like classics from another era.” -Acoustic Guitar Magazine. The word has spread organically around her self-released albums, attracting glowing features from The Huffington Post, NPR, and BBC Radio. She has been hand-picked to open tours for songwriting legends Emmylou Harris, Kenny Loggins, Richie Havens, Marc Cohn, Loudon Wainwright III and Dr. Ralph Stanley and was awarded Grand Prize in NPR’s Mountain Stage New Song Contest. A live recording of Rubarth from Memphis’ legendary Sun Studio is currently airing on PBS.

Rubarth’s eighth album, Wildflowers in the Graveyard, is a collection of songs centered around a theme of fluidity of life-death-rebirth in nature and relationships. It opens with her raw vocals floating over a finger-picked guitar, “There are wildflowers springing up at the graveyard / An oak tree that’s been standing here so long / And dandelions pretty in the sunshine / ‘Til the wind blows and they’re gone.” All songs are self-penned and recorded in analogue straight to 2″ tape with engineer and co-producer Matt Andrews (Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, Dawes) in her hometown of Nashville. The record has a bold magnetic energy drawing you in to each nuance and detail, revealing layers with the elegance of a wildflower in a land of people busily setting off fireworks.

In addition to her solo music, Rubarth has enjoyed many collaborations in film and music. She has scored and composed songs for films including the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (with Paul Brill) and the award-winning documentary Desert Runners.

Dave Davies w/ Edward Rogers

During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable, the opposite of the late ’60s/early ’70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York’s Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the ’80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.).

The group (singer Corey Glover, guitarist Vernon Reid, bassist Muzz Skillings, and drummer Will Calhoun) first formed in the mid-’80s and honed their act at N.Y.C.’s famed CBGB’s. Living Colour found an unlikely supporter in Mick Jagger, who took the band under his wing, produced a demo for the quartet, and helped them secure a record deal with Epic (just prior, Glover had to take a brief leave of absence from the band, as he landed a role in Oliver Stone’s Vietnam War epic movie, Platoon). Living Colour’s debut album, Vivid, was issued in the summer of 1988, yet it would take a few months for momentum to build. By the winter, the band’s striking video for their anthem “Cult of Personality” was all over MTV, pushing Vivid to the upper reaches of the charts and to platinum certification. Living Colour also took home their first of several Grammy Awards, as “Cult” won Best Hard Rock Performance at the 1989 ceremony, and the band supported the release with a string of dates opening stadiums for the Rolling Stones’ first U.S. tour in eight years that autumn. However, after three full length albums, internal friction led to a split in 1995.

In the wake of Living Colour parting ways, all of its former members pursued other projects. With Living Colour out of commission for several years by the early 21st century, Calhoun and Wimbish teamed up once more with Glover in a new outfit, Headfake, playing often in the New York City area. A few days before Christmas in 2000, Headfake played a show at CBGB’s, and were joined on-stage by Reid, which led to rumors of an impending Living Colour reunion. The rumors proved to be true, as Living Colour launched their first tour together in six years during the summer of 2001. In 2003, Living Colour returned with a deal with Sanctuary and their most experimental release to date, Collideøscope. Two years later the rarities collection What’s Your Favorite Color? was released, followed by Everything Is Possible: The Very Best of Living Colour in 2006 and the all new Chair in the Doorway in 2009.
