Roy Davis & The Dregs exist in a space where the only thing that matters is the sound of guitars and drums hitting microphones, and an aching voice reminding you to feel anything at all
The sound is Americana Pop-Rock at it's best, shifting easily from country shuffles to heartbreaking ballads to two-step sing-a-longs. Think Bruce Springsteen's flair for simple poetry meets Neil Young & Crazy Horse after 3 beers. Add the modern touch of the Jayhawks' vocal harmonies, subtract any lyrics about churning butter or shotgun weddings and you've begun to get the picture
Though just 22 years old, they have shared the stage with internationally acclaimed acts Josh Ritter and Say ZuZu, and their debut album has received nods of approval from the music community and sales from across the globe
The latest album is called Deadweight, and it is a shining example of the new breed of Alt-Country bands.
