Lefty's Old Time Music Hall says
Renowned for his captivating live shows and ‘superbly crafted songs dragged up from the depths of the soul‘ (Desert Highways), award-winning singer-songwriter Rich Davies is gaining a reputation as one of Melbourne’s most authentic and engaging artists. With a poet’s heart and a rocker’s soul, Davies spent his formative years in the folk clubs of Scotland, steeped in the ethos and traditions of the genre. The evolution of his new second album, Ghosts, has seen Davies reconnect with that world, as he peels back the skin of rock’n’roll to expose Old-Time Folk, Americana and Celtic bones.

Rich Davies & The Low Road; fellow singer-songwriter Ayleen O’Hanlon on backing vocals & banjo, Stirling Gill-Chambers (The Bon Scotts) on violin & vocals, and Kat Ogilvie on accordion, lagerphone & vocals ; deliver a unique fusion of Folk and Americana, with a nuanced, heart-on-sleeve sound that brings Davies’ song-writing and voice to the fore. Equal parts fragile and fierce, spanning a sonic spectrum from tender ballads to upbeat foot stompers.

Described as ‘hauntingly beautiful’ by Patrick Emery (Beat Magazine), Davies has performed alongside Australian artists Jeff Lang, Mick Thomas, Dobe Newton (Bushwackers), The Drones, Paul Dempsey and Marlon Williams; international acts Snow Patrol, KT Tunstall, The Dandy Warhols and Beck; and has played a number of European festivals including Big Tent Festival and T In The Park.
