Give In Kind
Guy Davis perseveres as one of the few contemporary African-American musicians to embrace the acoustic blues . . . the feel of his originals is timeless.
Musician, playwright and actor Guy Davis's new album, give in kind, is a beautifully authentic acoustic blues album inspired both by a life of careful observation and by a respect for the timeless work of the great country blues masters. Davis' fifth release (all on Red House ), the album contains mostly original material with a dash of classic songs written by such greats as "Mississippi" Fred McDowell, "Big" Bill Broonzy, Leroy Carr and "Sleepy" John Estes. Guy's ruffed-up vocals and notorious guitar work sizzle throughout the new album.
