I'm not really a folk singer, just an old hippy who writes his own songs

Biography

Davy Cartwright "Davy is selling himself short; for it's my opinion that he's an extremely talented singer/songwriter, who's produced some of the most moving and thought-provoking tracks I've ever heard" - Bill Everatt talking about the 'Brittle' album on Radio Celtica's 'Underground Edition' (www.celticaradio.com). Some quotes from the critics "fine, rich voice - think Paul Simon or James Taylor when they were proper folk singers" Sound Nation "softly spoken singer/songwriter with a host of songs in his own unique style" Barry Folk Festival "distinct and wondrous style" Rumney Folk Club. "good enough for any folk festival I've ever been to" Drunken Scotsman in pub "writes better songs than Ralph McTell" drunken Welshman in pub. "reminds me of Nick Drake" Drunken Welshwoman in pub. Maintaining his habit of being several decades behind the times, made his public debut in July 2003 with fellow singer-songwriter and ace blues guitarist Paul Duggan from Barry under the name of Steinbeck's Old Brown Boot. Played together regularly for about 18 months and produced one highly unsuccessful album - "Long Time Comin' . Then in the Summer of 2005 joined up with Newport singer-songwriter Lisa Matthews as "Ivy Salad". They played together for nearly two years before sliding off the plate in their different directions.
