Christopher Davis-Shannon's music is the essence of honest simplicity. Steeped strongly in the piedmont and delta fingerstyle blues traditions, his performances bring you back to a time of juke joints and smoky blues clubs of the early 20th century south. A modern vagabond he has toured the country as a performer the past 3 years, performing from Las Vegas to New Orleans and throughout the South. Davis-Shannon performs a mix of blues and jazz standards, traditional spirituals and his own originals which are steeped in the age-old styles he holds close to his heart. His intricate guitar work and plaintive vocals are infused with soulfulness which cannot be faked, and a respect for his predecessors which is rarely equaled. Christopher Davis-Shannon’s act has already caught the attention of several beloved music promoters in the greater Philadelphia area, and shows no signs of slowing anytime soon.
