The Lyric Theater will showcase the music of Daniel Davis on January 21. Beginning at 7 p.m., the concert will feature Jonathan Short.
An American Songwriter/Christian Artist. Born and raised in Southwest Virginia, Daniel Davis has spent a lifetime soaking up the stories and wisdom of the Appalachian Mountains. His songs and writing are filled with tales of love, loss, family, and values, in a down home style that only a true “country boy” could pen.
Daniel was the frontman and songwriter for the band Folk Soul Revival from 2008-2021, amassing a wide audience throughout the country while sharing the stage with the likes of Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earl, Chris Janson, Eric Church, Charlie Daniels, and Dr. Ralph Stanley. Davis’ tunes have connected with a wide array of folks along the way, earning the attention of fans as well as accolades including: being a two time finalist and winner of the Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at Merlefest and a finalist in the Tennessee Songwriters Showcase of 2020. His lyrics cut to the core of a listener with an equal blend of honesty, wit, and melody that leave no emotional stone unturned. As a product of small town living and a loving husband and father to two young boys, Daniel has no shortage of feelings and experience to draw from and continues to write songs to connect the fabrics of life that we all share. Most recently, Daniel has turned his focus toward writing and performing gospel songs and spreading the word of God through music. Daniel’s first gospel album, “Move Me” will be released in fall 2022!
