Shaw Davis is rapidly establishing himself in the realm of Roots & Blues Rock. Born April 4, 1995, the young guitarist has burst his way onto the scene and has already been named one of "50 Modern Blues and Rock Artists In 2019" by Rock and Blues Muse.
Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature an incendiary brand of Hard Blues, Psychedelia, and Roots Rock that continues to resonate with fans and crowds across the country. Backed by drummer, Bobby Van Stone, and bassist, Patrick Stevenson, the power trio has become a mainstay on the national club circuit and have performed with the likes of Foghat, The Guess Who, Blackberry Smoke, Samantha Fish, Chris Duarte, Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, Walter Trout, Popa Chubby, GE Smith, JP Soars, Anthony Gomes and Eric Tessmer.
Formed in the summer of 2016 out of Pompano Beach, Florida, the bands second album Tales From The West was nominated for three Independent Blues Music awards. Currently, the group is working on their third studio album with producer and former guitarist for Johnny Winter, Paul Nelson at the helm. The album is set to release in the Spring of 2020.
Their self-titled debut album was released on June 14, 2017 to a sold-out release concert at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, Florida and continues to receive steady airplay on blues/rock radio stations in the United States as well as the UK. The debut album also received an impressive review from Blues Magazine:
“We have a new young guitar hero! Shaw Davis of South Florida. Fierce, raw guitar licks… his guitar tears, barks and bites… We will certainly enjoy this guitarist in the future.”
In January of 2018, the trio released “Alive From Legacy”, a three-track live record intended to capture the energy of the band’s live shows. After its release, the live EP received an excellent review from Rock and Blues Muse:
"Dynamism, precision, and outright fury. It’s like a three-pronged sonic offensive – the guitar pierces, the bass rattles, and the drums batter. For fans of the heavier end of blues rock, it’s a beating your eardrums will gladly take.”
October 20, 2018 brought their sophomore album to life, Tales From The West, with more impressive reviews and airplay while debuting at #20 on the Roots Music Report Blues Rock Chart.
“They’re a three-man wrecking crew that infuse the Blues with Hard Rock muscle to gratifying effect.” -The Rock Doctor
“The hard-charging, rising Blues Rocker leads his trio through a blistering set that shows he never heard of a sophomore jinx. Tipping his hand that he’s charting a course of being a Road Warrior that lights up the night, this hard-hitting set defies fashion and conventional wisdom simply by being incendiary. Hot stuff throughout.”
