Roy Davis and Bernie Nye, the songwriting team that brought us the critically acclaimed Deadweight (2009) and We Are A Lightning Bolt (2010), have teamed up with a group of Maine-based and nationally renowned bluegrass musicians to bring us The Coloradas. Their debut album is a collection of songs that combine traditional bluegrass and blues with modern-day stories of life’s many concerns. It was quickly praised by No Depression, nominated in the Portland Phoenix Best Music Poll’s ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Song’ categories, and released by German label Hometown Caravan. Soon after, they were sent on tour in Europe and haven’t stopped performing since.
Singer/guitarist Roy Davis has been a touring and recording artist since he was 20 years old. Six years and four full length albums later, he has evolved into a cutting lyricist and a compelling performer. With The Coloradas, he has traveled the US and Europe performing at festivals, clubs, and performing arts venues, while wearing the hat of singer, band leader, record producer/engineer, manager, graphic designer, and documentarian. He currently splits his time between Maine and Bregenz (Austria). For more check out http://thecoloradas.com or view the video below.
