"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." - Rock and Blues Muse
“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.” - Blues Magazine
"They're a three-man wrecking crew that infuse the blues with hard rock to gratifying effect." - The Rock Doctor
Named to Rock & Blues Muse's "50 Modern Blues and Rock Artists You Must Hear In 2019"
Shaw Davis is quickly establishing himself in the realm of Roots & Blues Rock. Born April 4, 1995, the young guitarist has burst his way onto the scene and is already known for his raw and emotional style.
Backed by drummer, Bobby Van Stone, and bassist, Patrick Stevenson, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature their own brand of Psychedelic Blues and Roots Rock that continues to win over fans and crowds across the nation. As a national touring trio, the band has played over 300 shows, headlining festivals and opening tours, allowing them to build a loyal following throughout the country. Being influenced by the sounds of vintage, heavy blues-rock, they have opened shows for acts such as Foghat, Samantha Fish, Chris Duarte, Sean Chambers, Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, Matt Schofield, Popa Chubby, GE Smith, JP Soars, and Anthony Gomes.
Formed May of 2016 out of Pompano Beach, Florida, the young power trio has made multiple appearances on Blues Radio International and has been featured in South Florida Music Magazine for their crowd-pleasing performances. In 2017 the band participated in the South Florida Blues Challenge and won their Road To Memphis, representing South Florida at the 2018 International Blues Challenge. Currently, the group is touring on their third studio release, "Tales From The West".

"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.”

“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.”
– Midwest Records
"The next generation of pure, unadulterated Blues Rock...this is only the beginning for this remarkable trio." - Rock and Blues Muse
