I've been listening to Benjy Davis for more than ten years and the music keeps getting better with each new release. If you are a fan of the Benjy Davis Project material you will love this solo debut project.

About Benjy Davis
Louisiana singer/songwriter Benjy Davis formed the Benjy Davis Project as a folk-rock duo in Baton Rouge in 2001. Originally, the group's only members were Davis and drummer Mic Capdevielle, although the outfit eventually expanded into a six-piece with the addition of Anthony Rushing (violin, mandolin, vocals), Jonathan Lawhun (guitar, banjo), Brett Bolden (bass; later replaced by Matt Rusnak), and Michael Galasso (harmonica, keyboards, vocals). The Benjy Davis Project built up a following while touring nationally as a support act to John Mayer, Better Than Ezra, and the North Mississippi Allstars, as well as playing such prominent local shows as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The group self-released its first album, More Than Local, in 2002, followed two years later by the Practice Sessions EP. The local label Bogalusa issued their second full-length album, 2005's The Angie House, and Real Records stepped in to handle their third, Dust, which appeared in September 2007. The Benjy Davis Project signed with Rock Ridge Music in 2008 and reissued Dust several months later, with new mixing and three bonus songs rounding out the package. By this time, the band had scaled itself back to the core lineup of Benjy Davis and Mic Capdeviell, and a number of studio musicians were called upon to flesh out the group's fourth album, 2010's Lost Souls Like Us. Less than 12 months later, Davis and Capdeviell returned with Sincerely, an acoustic album featuring stripped-down versions of their favorite originals. ~ William Ruhlmann
