Editors’ Notes

Berkeley bard Bart Davenport wears many musical faces; with Honeycut (who you can hear when booting up Mac OSX) he blends electro-funk and soul, while the more organic sounding Incarnations has him playing breezy strum ‘n’ bass. His solo live performances are usually performed with a four-piece baroque-pop band or just by himself with a couple guitars.

Frank’s “Blues Run the Game” into the chords for the Moore Brothers’ “Kid Ivy.” If you enjoyed Vetiver’s Thing of the Past, Searching for Bart Davenport plays like an intimate companion to that album.
