Drew Davis Records Live Album at One-2-One

If you follow this website you already know we love us some Drew Davis. Honestly, how can anyone not admire such a charming and inspirational lady? Whether she’s helping us unwind from the week with soothing, soul-drenched melodies…shouting words of encouragement during a calorie frying 5K…or cracking our funny bone as Charles Maund Toyota’s official diva…we just can’t get enough of this lighthearted singer-songwriter.

It’s been nearly two years since Davis released her last full-length album, Lessons…and her loyal fans have been clamoring for more ever since. Thankfully, our Drew Davis fix is right around the corner.

On Wednesday, Davis brought her entire band and special guest Tje Austin out to One-2-One bar for her first ever live album recording. The release date is still up in the air…just like the mood of all those in attendance. However, Davis has assured us it will ‘definitely be this year’ and you best believe we’ll have the skinny once it drops. Check out the show highlights below.

Who is Drew Davis?

Drew Davis embodies the phrase ‘hunger for the hustle.’ The 27-year-old, singer-songwriter accomplishes more by lunchtime on Monday than most average individuals achieve by clockout time on Friday. Aside from laying down smooth and sensual slow jams, the #riseandgrind Miss Davis daylights as a personal Pilates and cardio training fitness instructor, runs a weekly Instablog @eat_sweat_groove and even does a little acting on the side as the official Charles Maund Toyota mascot spokesperson.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Davis prior to her June 21st show at east Austin’s Native Hostel and found that beyond being a super talented musician and fashionably photogenic model, she’s one of the kindest and most down-to-earth individuals I have had the pleasure of photographing.

Having enjoyed a musical career extending back into her early childhood, to say Davis is somewhat a musical savant would not be too far a stretch. Performing original music from the modest age of 11, Davis has had quite the noteworthy, if not enviable, journey of musical success having had many of her music used by influential television shows and films from the United States, Mexico, and France.

Davis’s performance on Wednesday was personally inspiring. Having been warned, a warning I respectfully laughed at, that there would be dancing during the show, I was unprepared for the sheer amount and level of skill these patron dancers would brandish. Not one to boast of my own dancing abilities, or lack thereof, I found myself mesmerized by the artistry of these talented men and women whilst being whisked away by the power and beauty of Davis’ incredible voice. She sang songs of love, loss, and heartache with such soul that I found myself reminiscing upon the failures of my past relationships while still remaining ever hopeful for the chance to love again. Few artists have ever so firmly set me in my emotions like the stories she sang.

Davis’ latest EP, Lessons, released in early 2016, is a masterful composition of vocal prowess and emotion-invoking lyrics combined with wonderfully executed keystrokes that leave the listener desiring more. I suggest that every Austinite take the opportunity to see Davis perform while she still calls Austin home.

You can see Drew Davis live Wednesday, June 28th at Whisler’s.
