If you don't already know of Davey O. and his music, perhaps it's time. This Buffalo, NY based songwriter has embarked on a decade-plus journey, entertaining attentive, diverse audiences at listening rooms, coffeehouses, nightclubs, festivals, colleges and universities throughout the Northeast, Midwest, Midsouth and Atlantic U.S. Performances that result in engagement, participation and communion between performer and audience through story and highly introspective songs. Pure Americana that is not of the social and political consciousness, but drawn from the deep well of experience and human emotion. No hackneyed story lines, no insincere polish, just an unflinching poet's look at life. The characters woven seamlessly into stories of which the song itself becomes the soundtrack for the movie playing inside the listener's head. A multiple ASCAP Plus Award recipient, 2004 WNY People's Choice Award winner and a perennial Buffalo Music Award nominee, Davey's latest release, "Testing For Rust" has not only received critical acclaim, but has garnered international airplay, which has resulted in a Top 20 spot on the Folk DJ Charts for August 2012 and consistent Top 25 charting on the Roots Music Reports in NYS. For fans of Americana, Alt-Country and Contemporary Folk, an artist worth listening to, indeed.
