Nick Jonah Davis - Of Time And Tides
Nick Jonah Davis is a guitarist from Nottingham, England. His early blues rock leanings led to the discovery of prewar blues, as well as modal British folk. Nick steadily absorbed these influences over many years of solitary improvisation. The post-Takoma acoustic guitar solo scene has provided a context for Nick's music, which might otherwise have remained a private endeavour. Live, Nick has shared bills in the UK and USA with the likes of James Blackshaw, Alasdair Roberts, Jozef van Wissem, Max Ochs, Ellen Mary McGee and Eric Carbonara.
Nick first ventured into the studio to record his brief album 'Guitar Recordings Vol 1, one of UNCUT/Wild Mercury Sound's Top 100 Albums of 2009. 'Of Time and Tides' is his more expansive second release, featuring evocative solo performances on 6 and 12 string guitar, as well as duets with guitarist Will Phipps and pianist Ed Earl. Nick tours the UK with Steffen Basho-Junghans in April 2011.
Nick also appears on Tompkins Square's acclaimed compilation 'Imaginational Anthem v 4 : New Possibilities' (TSQ 2448 / TSQ2455 -LP)
