Barrett Davis

Location: R.A. Fountain

Brevard-based recording artist Barrett Davis plays RAF for the first time tonight, and he’s bringing along a couple of excellent sidemen: Jonathan Gray on bass and Eric Henninger on drums.

Davis , who plays guitar, is noted as a singer-songwriter whose lyrics and voice would have been at home in classic bands like New Riders of the Purple Sage, the James Gang, or Poco. He’s touring to promote his new CD, The Ballad of Aesop Finn.

Gray just wrapped up a tour playing bass with Amanda Shires on her “Take It Like a Man” tour and was formerly with Jump, Little Children.  Henninger is owner of Attic Custom Drums in Brevard.
