Nicole Davis

BandRockSinger/Songwriter

Folk roots rock with an edgy alternative feel performed by crowd pleasing, strongly melodic singer songwriter and band, 42 West. Mostly originals, some covers. For my sound, think Sheryl Crow, Ryan Adams.

Biography

From listening rooms to rowdy bars, we've been putting smiles on the faces of our listeners for two years now.

Recent LA area venues include The Mint, Whisky, Genghis Cohen, Air Conditioned Lounge; have also performed in Honolulu, Park City, Nashville, New Orleans, Houston.

Influences: Coldplay, Amos Lee, Ryan Adams /Whiskeytown, Old 97's, The Wailin' Jennys, Johnny Cash, Nick Drake, Foo Fighters, The Fray, Badly Drawn Boy, Allison Moorer, and the emotions, frustrations, and fascinations of life.

People say I sound like: Sheryl Crow, Rickie Lee Jones, Aimee Mann, Mazzy Star, and 70's era singer songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Carole King.

Terminal Butterfly

TERMINAL BUTTERFLY- CAPO 2ND FRET


What does it mean when you don't say what you mean?
I just wanna love you, just wanna love you, just wanna love you

Smoke from the fire brings the promise of a light
Shining in the corner on a dark and cloudy night

I know you been so tired and I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight
I just wanna love you, just wanna love you, just wanna love you
I just wanna love you, just wanna love you, just wanna love you

You told me that you never wanna feel like you need someone,
But now you liked wanting wanting me

When you leave me on faith, I feel like my religion's hanging on
I just wanna love you, jut wanna love you, just wanna love you
I just wanna love you, just wanna love you, just wanna love you

I need to know that you wanted to,
wanted to want me like I do you

I just wanna love you, just wanna love you, just wanna love you
