"Nick Davey"

Nick Davey began his musical pursuits in Derbyshire, England, in the 1970s, playing guitar with a cheeky little acoustic prog-rock outfit called Quince. In the 1980s, he took up vocals and harmonica duties with a London group called the Catford Dogs, before spending nine years in Poland developing his richly crafted brand of classic acoustic pop/rock through solo pub and tavern performances similar to the ones he's becoming so well-known for here in the Springs.
Davey, whose delivery and clever observations could easily be likened to those of a proverbial Billy Bragg / Neil Young love child, has been gigging locally since 2006 with another talented local songwriter, Jeremy Facknitz, as Cool for Cats. He's also built himself a nice little home recording studio (, and will release his first solo disc, a delightfully well-produced cache of "happiness and heartache" by the name of Knockout on Friday, Feb. 12, at a free kick-off party at Rico's Cafe and Wine Bar (324 N. Tejon St.).
And if Friday just won't do, there'll be repeat performances the following night at the Cucuru Gallery Cafe (2332 W. Colorado Ave.), and on Thursday, Feb. 18, at Benny's (517 W. Colorado Ave.).
