Tennessee born South Carolina raised singer songwriter Patrick Davis has long been known for his abilities as an accomplished songwriter with over 70 of his songs recorded by artist ranging from Guy Clark & Robert Randolph to Jimmy Buffett & Imelda May, but it may very well be his latest creative endeavor that ends up being the music for which he is most fondly remembered. After a decade plus inside the too often homogenized Nashville Music Row Machine Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir is Patrick’s rediscovering (and reaffirming) his faith in the sound, sincerity & soul of the timeless songs, artists & music that moved him to pick up the guitar (& pen) in the first place.
Built on Davis’ love for classic sounds & songwriting Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir, with it’s horns, backing vocalists and song structures, hark on the legendary recordings of Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, JJ Cale, Ray Charles & Bruce Springsteen while at the same time closely navigating the musical waters explored by today’s Tedeschi Trucks, Nathaniel Rateliff, Amos Lee, Jason Isbell & others. While Patrick’s songwriting, showmanship and band leading never change the members of PD’s Midnight Choir are an ever rotating line up of world class musicians and singers from PD’s extensive rolodex of musical friends & even family members… as his sister Megan leads the background singers & his dad Rusty plays lead guitar on select shows in the Southeast.
