Brock Davis is a miner for emotional truth. As a songwriter, he descends deep below the surface to return with songs of love, loss and redemption that are honest, real and often heartbreakingly beautiful. His music mixes the fingerstyle acoustic guitar of contemporary folk with the jangly Telecasters and swirling B3 organ of roots rock, liberally seasoned with the slide guitar and rural landscapes of country music.
Now based in Santa Cruz, California, Brock grew up in a small mill town near Vancouver, Canada and those small-town roots come through in his writing.
Brock’s a veteran performer who spent many years working the bars and clubs. He has just finished recording his latest album, “A Song Waiting To Be Sung” at Ronnie’s Place Studio in Nashville, TN, with some of Nashville’s top musicians. In the title song, he writes:
“These old hands have played a song or two
I look at yours and I wonder what they’ll do
My simple dream is lying in my arms, a tiny son
The greater scheme enfolds us in the mystery that has come
A circle culminating
You’re a song that’s waiting to be sung”
