The Davis Brothers are an acoustic singer/songwriter duo based in Oklahoma City. They mix old-time country, folk, honky tonk and rock-a-billy to create a sound George Hamilton IV calls “Folkabilly.”

It’s hardcore country music at it’s best: songs about real life, about trains, lost loves, murders and redemption. But make no mistake; this is a sound that’s been accepted by a public hungry for substance in coffee houses, folk clubs and theaters all across the country.

Among their many musical influences, The Davis Brothers recount an early meeting with country music pioneer Ernest Tubb as a defining moment in their lives. Their music spans the gamut of Roy Acuff to Bob Dylan to Ernest Tubb to Woody Guthrie to Johnny Cash. In a world of pure commercialism, The Davis Brothers stand out as originals.

With tight harmonies that come only from siblings (yes they are really brothers) they produce a rich sound with an acoustic guitar, mandolin and occasional harmonica.

Not content to wait on things to happen, The Davis Brothers began a string of self-produced concerts in late 2000 featuring Grand Ole Opry veterans including Bill Anderson, Charlie Louvin, Jack Greene and George Hamilton IV. They not only produced but also fronted these concerts as a way to get their foot in the door of performing.

In early 2001, The Davis Brothers released a collection of country music standards on a self-produced, independently released album titled “Meet The Davis Brothers: Last of the Hillbilly Singers.” Drawing on their own musical influences, The Davis Brothers selected songs written or made famous by their own music influences including: Roy Acuff, Porter Wagoner, Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper, The Louvin Brothers, Don Gibson, Grandpa Jones, Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie.

As the continued to focus on their own sound, The Davis Brothers went on a song-writing binge that continues today. The first signs of these promises songwriting careers emerged in 2002 with another self-produced album “Song Folio.” Again, drawing from their influences, the brothers this time recorded 11 original songs that mixed the old-time country, rock-a-billy and folk sounds that meant to much to them.

On the basis of “Song Folio” The Davis Brothers have toured throughout Oklahoma, including a five-city tour with good friend George Hamilton IV. They have expanded their audience by performing in 2003 in Tennessee, Florida, Kansas and Arizona and eye future dates around the country.

Original and independent, The Davis Brothers manage their own careers, write their own songs and produce and release their own albums. They are a double threat to “cookie cutter” music.
