Davis Coen says
Davis Coen returns to Midtown Memphis' historic Overton Square neighborhood for a solo show at the relatively new and popular Madison Ave. bar/restaurant Local Gastropub.
The Memphis, TN~area contemporary country-blues guitarist/singer-songwriter’s most recent accomplishments have been daily airplay on XM/Sirius Satellite radio; inclusion as featured artist twice on Dan Aykroyd’s ‘House Of Blues Radio Hour’; and NPR’s ‘Morning Edition’ and ‘World Cafe’ programs. Also his music is credited on the DVD release of Martin Scorsese’s PBS special ‘The Blues’; the truTV reality TV show ‘Lizard Lick Towing’, independent films ‘Fress Cut Grass’ (2004) and ‘Mental Scars’ (2009); and on the DVD documentary about the music of the Hillcountry Mississippi blues matriarch Jesse Mae Hemphill, titled ‘Dare You To Do It Again’.

Coen has been touring the U.S. since his teens, either as a solo guitar and vocal act, or commonly accompanied by bass and drums configuration. He most commonly appears at clubs, bars, and festivals throughout the Southeast and mid-south; of recent note, twice billing at the historic King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas. He has also enjoyed a dozen tours of Europe, promoting nine album releases. He has shared a bill or opened for many of the classic blues artists who influenced his music; including James Cotton, Junior Wells, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Big Jack Johnson, T-Model Ford, and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. He has also shared bills with such non-blues performers as Leon Russell, Richie Havens, Mountain, Eric Burdon, Tito Puente and Toots & The Maytals.
