Sharlee Davis and Will Devitt have taken their rootsy blend of folk rock, blues, country and acoustic pop/jazz to countless clubs, colleges, wineries and festivals throughout the Midwest. They have played such legendary listening rooms as The Bluebird Café in Nashville TN, Eddie’s Attic in Decatur GA as well as The Crossroads Music Festival in Memphis TN and The Mississippi River Music Festival in St. Louis MO.
They have shared the stage with k.d.lang, John Prine, Cowboy Junkies, Greg Brown, Tuck and Patti, Carrie Newcomer, Shelby Lynn, and Billy Jo Shaver to name just a few.
They have had their songs used in film and theater productions and recorded by artists in Nashville.
Inventive guitar, smooth harmonies and great songs all add up to a unique and electrifying sound heralded by critics and fans alike.
We are happy to announce the arrival of our new CD “nine” available NOW for purchase or mp3 download in our store.
This is our first studio recording in several years and unlike our live shows we were able to add other instruments, a process we really enjoy. A few of the songs featured on “nine” are: “Thieves” a.k.a. the stolen car song; a davisanddevittized version of the Train hit “ Hey, Soul Sister”: “The Unclouded Day” which was used in an independent film project and “Winter World”, a song that was included on the compilation CD “Music for Memory” , a fundraiser to help support the Alzheimer’s foundation.
We’ve also included a few standards sprinkled in between our own compositions, including Hoagy Carmichael’s “Georgia on My Mind” and a stripped down version of the classic torch song“Cry Me a River”.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support of this project and we hope to see you at a performance soon!
