In addition to playing live with Hayes Carll and Jason Eady, Scott Davis has appeared live with Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, Wanda Jackson, Sunny Sweeney, Jack Ingram, Turnpike Troubadours, Corb Lund, Jamie Wilson, The Trishas, Emily Bell, John Evans and many more. From 2013 to 2017, he was the touring bass player for The Band of Heathens. He handled bass duties on their critically lauded 2017 release, Duende. He can currently be seen playing regularly with Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis and as part of Robison’s Next Waltz web series house band. As a songwriter, Davis is credited on co-writes with Hayes Carll, John Evans, Jason Eady, Jamie Wilson, and Gordy Quist. He’s also written several of his own songs and released his first solo record, Considerate Vandals in 2016.
John Calvin Abney is a songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist sideman who’s spent nearly 10 years in the studio and on the road in instrumental service to the songs of other writers, including John Moreland, Samantha Crain, and, recently, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, along with a veritable swath of writers and musicians that quickly become friends. Recently, he has also spent time scoring short films and documentaries between session and show, and even picked up part time work cleaning and repairing old video games from the 80’s and 90’s at a local shop.
He writes when something moves him, when nothing moves him, whenever he can capture a spare moment, and when he senses something that sparks the myriad musical kindling that sits bundled in his thoughts. If his hands aren’t moving, his mind surely still is.
