While on tour in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, sharing his brand of Blues to people far and wide, and a week before heading north of the Arctic Circle to a children's home in Greenland to perform for the visiting Queen of Denmark, Guy Davis was tagged with the moniker, "The Ambassador of the Blues". It seems fitting, for Guy is more than willing to take his love of this truly American art form to the four corners of the globe. Whether he's performing in traditional settings, like on the Main Stage in front of 15,000 people at a Folk, Jazz, or Blues Festival somewhere on the globe, or on nationally syndicated TV programs like "Late Show With David Letterman" or "Late Night With Conan O'Brien", or radio programs like "A Prairie Home Companion" or the BBC program with Paul Jones, or performing an assembly program at a school in the Basque region of northern Spain, or at an integrated school in South Carolina, Guy is anxious to give it his all. And 'his all' is his love of the Blues. While commonly called a "Bluesman", he actually thinks of himself as more of a Blues musician and entertainer in much the same way as the traveling musicians of yesterday were, such as Robert Johnson or Charlie Patten. Out of the respect he has for those who came before him and actually lived the formative life of a true Bluesman, Guy does not personally wearthe "Bluesman" label. Guy will joke that "the only cotton I've picked is my underwear up off the floor." Guy's influences are as broad and varied as his travels, from Blind Willie McTell and FatsWaller, to Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal, from Zora Neale Hurston, Garrison Keillor, to Ossie (hisfather) and Laura (his grandmother) Davis. He's a musician, composer, actor, director, and writerwho blends all of his experiences to convey his love of the music. He has received accolades and praise for his performance off-Broadway as the legendary Robert Johnson in “Robert Johnson: Trick The Devil.”, winning the Blues Foundation's "Keeping the Blues Alive Award”. Likewise, he received rave reviews for his appearance on Broadway in “Finian's Rainbow,” playing the part originally played by the legendary Sonny Terry in the 1947 production. He has been nominated for nearly a dozen Blues Awards, and has released nine acclaimed albums on Redhouse Records. He self-released an "Audio Play", two-CD collection of his one-man play, "The Adventures His latest recording, also on his own label, Smokeydoke Records, has been released in Europe by French-based label, Dixie Frog Records. It was produced by Italian harmonica ace, Fabrizio Poggi, who also performs on the album. It will be released in North America on September 10th on M.C. Records.
