Elizabeth doesn’t define her genre. She’s in a world of her own, but if you must, she would identify with Americana, Old-school Country, Bluegrass, & Folk.

The distance between a sure bet and a Mystery is adventure fueled by restlessness. Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Aaron Davis works the lesser-worn corners of the American musical fabric through an unconventional lens. Slide banjo? Detuned guitar made of metal and an electric cigar box? You bet. From “searing slide guitar” (Country Weekly) in the country-blues vein à la Duane Allman with “a particularly interesting approach that mixes poetry, groove and roughness” (Lonestar Time) to a patchwork of fingerstyle folk, gypsy grass, gritty Americana and soulful roots-rock, Davis has been described as a “truly phenomenal songwriter” (About.com).
Nine releases and four bands into an independent recording career, the Wyoming-based/Kentucky-bred songwriter offers his 2nd solo album, The Meander [June 2019]. Far from a solitary project, the set showcases over a dozen regional musicians that Davis has toured and collaborated with, including Wyoming folk hero Jalan Crossland. The set billows and breaths with both minimalist compositions and ensemble intricacy, the latter fluidity being at the hands of the fervent texture experts of his touring brotherhood, The Mystery Machine—drummer Jason Baggett and 3-part harmony via bassist David Bundy and piano/organ/synth man Mike Patton.
Located in Chamber park at First and Main Street in downtown Lander.
