MeeT The Band
"They're a three-man wrecking crew that infuse the Blues with Hard Rock to gratifying effect."
- The Rock Doctor
"The next generation of Pure, unadulterated Blues-Rock...this is only the beginning for this remarkable trio."
- Rock & Blues Muse
Formed in 2017 and hailing from Pompano Beach, Florida, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature an incendiary fusion of Progressive Hard Rock and Roots Rock that embodies the soul found within Blues Rock icons of the 60s and 70s. After a steady dose of touring the United States, performing over 300 shows in a two year span, the band has begun to carve their way into the national touring scene.
Dubbed as one of the "Top 50 Rock & Blues Artists You Must Hear In 2019" by Rock & Blues Muse, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties teamed up with Grammy Award-winner Paul Nelson (known for his work with Johnny Winter) to record Red Sun Rebellion set to release in February 2021 on Sony Orchard. The record unleashes a pioneering blend of retro soundscapes with modern Hard Rock progressivism, embracing influence from the likes of Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Rage Against The Machine, and Rival Sons.
Released in the fall of 2018, the bands second album Tales From The West was nominated for three Independent Blues Music awards and debuted at #20 on the RMR Blues Rock chart. The power trio has become a mainstay on the national club circuit and have performed alongside the likes of Foghat, The Guess Who, Blackberry Smoke, The Georgia Satellites, Bishop Gunn, Walter Trout, Eric Tessmer, Samantha Fish and Blue Oyster Cult.
