Richard Paul Davis is joined by some of the finest musicians in Texas for his new album, although His trademark high lonesome and grit are here in full amounts as well.
Richard recently returned from Nashville and recorded a single and b-side with some of Nashville's finest session players and with Taylor Hick's former producer Will Smith. Richard has assembled a fine bunch of motley gents and sometimes ladies, called the Texas Red Legs that he is now touring and writing with.
On the dynamic and Heartfelt path like Frank Black Lou Reed Iron and Wine and Neil Young: Richard Paul is a songwriter that is true and honest. He swims deep below the surface to give the drowning listener a breath, and pushes them to surface, while somehow ending up at a campfire sometime later recounting the tale.
At every step there is some new devil dog or demon to haunt us or torment our steps.
Richard found his stride when he moved to Dallas, TX when he was drenched in the alternative and independent movement going through Austin and other cities throughout Texas.
With a defined vision and voice as well as determination to return to his American music roots, he has finished recording an album that conveys his vision and is accessible and genuine and also is devoid of pretense or arrogance. Richard sights as his inspirations Frank Black from Pixies fame, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Dwight Yoakam, all three of the Hank Williams, The late Buck Owens and John Lee Hooker. Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Erin Mckeown Cat Power and Iron and Wine round out his favorite artists.
