Chris Davis, Americana Singer-Songwriter
Origin and Experience
Originally from the mining town of Commerce, Okla., Chris Davis has made a name for himself around the Midwest for his original songs and acoustic performance. Now residing in Edmond, OK, Chris has performed at the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree in Nashville (immediately following the Grand Ole Opry), the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, OKC’s premiere music room – The Blue Door, and various other venues throughout the region.
Musical Style and Influences
Performing both songs that he has written along with influential cover songs, audiences enjoy Chris’s musical sound, the message of his songs, and his overall attitude of having fun while making music. Take a good mix of Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, and Merle Haggard and throw in some Okie red dirt, and you have as close as you can get to a description of Chris’s music.
