"Nick Jonah Davis"

'Davis has a lovely, bell-like clarity to his playing, which puts him right up there with Tompkins Square's other 2009 British discovery, Ben Reynolds.' - Uncut Magazine

"Nick Jonah Davis"

Nick Jonah Davis' playing after a short while becomes hypnotic as you watch his fingers glide over his fret board like some sort of Zen monk who has mastered the art of playing elegant finger-picked guitar. He makes it look effortless as overlapping, twisting and melodic guitar lines spill out over the audience, who sit there in silence desperate to grab hold of every nuance and note of his music. There are times when if you shut your eyes, it sounds like there could be three or four guitarists on stage such is the amazing, rich, textured sounds that Nick conjures up from his guitar. His music makes me think that I'm on some foreboding road trip across the Badlands of the States as opposed to sitting in a tea shop. - Left Lion Magazine


'Guitar Recordings Vol 1' - Tompkins Square Records 2009



Nick Jonah Davis's solitary exploration of the acoustic guitar draws on the modal tunings and freewheeling spirit of British trailblazers such as Bert Jansch and Davy Graham. His approach is further informed by the the expressionist guitarists of the Takoma tradition and the burgeoning contemporary psych-folk movement.

Guitar Recordings Vol. 1 is his debut release. Available on Tompkins Square Records, it was listed in the top 100 albums of 2009 by Uncut Magazine's Wild Mercury Sound blog.

Nick has played on bills with artists including Alasdair Roberts and James Blackshaw, and performed at the 10th New York Guitar Festival.
