About Davis Jones
San Francisco, CA
Born in Akron, Ohio, Davis spent his childhood listening to records from his father’s massive collection of rock, soul, and folk. These early influences emerged when he taught himself to play the guitar, and stuck when he began writing his own music in 2003. Davis’s songs blend the populist traditions of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie with the contemporary acoustic soul of Neil Young and Ben Harper. It is music boiled down to an organic essence, one based on revelations and shared experience, not showboating.
Davis has independently released five albums since 2004. His wide range of experiences and influences keep his style fresh and steadily evolving, from catchy folk to literate acoustic rock. You’ll feel right at home listening to his smoky, soulful voice—and you don’t have to be from Ohio to appreciate it.
