The John Martin Davis Band is an American Country/Folk band based out of Mobile, Alabama. The lineup currently consists of John Martin Davis (guitar, vocals), Daniel Davis (banjo, vocals), Dave Denton (Electric Guitar), Taylor Watson (Drums), and Daniel Maqueda (Bass).
Growing up in the small town of Brookhaven, MS, John Martin and Daniel have lived simple lives. After finding a home near the ocean the past 5 years, their music emulates a one of a kind mixture of a life on the sand and a sweet southern lifestyle unparalleled by any other culture.
The title of our new album is "Beginnings", being this is our first album. We were able to record our album at Duck Tape Studios with the Legendary producer, Johnny Sandlin. Being well know in the Muscle Shoals area, Johnny produced all of the Allman Brother albums and spent much of his career working for FAME Records in Muscle Shoals. Since we were up there and had the legend producing we thought it would only be appropriate to have the real Muscle Shoals musicians playing on it. Players included David Hood (Bass, an original "Swamper"), Will Mcfarland (Guitar, considered a "Swamper", guitarist for artist Bonnie Raitt), Bill Stewart (Drums, has played on many Allman Brother albums), NC Thurman (Keys&Organ, toured with artist such as Willie Nelson), and Donnie Carpenter (Fiddle, toured with artist such as Blake Shelton).
We have sent it off to be mixed by executive producer of all audio for the TV show "Criminal Minds", Scott Gordon. We are very excited about this album and believe it will set the path for our success.
