“Every now and then I hear something really special, that moves me with the raw honesty of it. I love when songs and singers give me a sense of lives being truly lived. The Davies Brothers give that.” (Luka Bloom)
Eoin and Brian Davies are identical twin singer-songwriters from County Clare, Ireland. Writing and performing as ‘The Davies Brothers’, their raw, honest songs, natural harmonic blends and intuitive on-stage chemistry will captivate any audience. Hailing from a small corner of the country that boasts a large, thriving music scene, The Davies Brothers have been majorly influenced by many artists that have close connections to the North West Clare area, such as Luka Bloom, Mick Flannery, The Walls, SON (Susan O’Neill), Steo Wall, SAL (Sara Ryan), The O'Connell Brothers and many more. Their creativity flows easily, inspired by a somewhat rough and wild way of rural living, a difficult upbringing, relationships, loss and a unique perspective on life garnered from their time living, writing and performing music in Cork City while also studying a BA in popular music (Vocals and Bass) at Cork School of music.
Sweet Salvation is the second official single release for identical twins and singer-songwriter duo The Davies Brothers. It is their first full band studio recording, produced by Christian Best at Monique Studios, Co.Cork in 2019 and released on all platforms on the 14th of January 2022. An intriguing folk track with striking almost harsh vocals, rebellious lyrics and a message of revolution, all tied together with silky sweet harmony and soft but lively instrumentation.
The upcoming year promises to be an exciting one for The Davies Brothers, whose creativity flows easily at home in North West Clare, inspiring music and lyrics conveying experience beyond their years. Over the past couple of years, they have enjoyed performing original sets in pioneering music venues across the country, including Kenny’s bar Co. Clare, Coughlan’s, Co. Cork, The Roisin Dubh, Co. Galway and Mike the pies, Co. Kerry, as well as supporting well known Irish acts such as Mick Flannery and Hudson Taylor and The Walls. They also played as headliners on the main stage of the IMRO short-listed Doolin Folk Festival back in 2019.
The brothers are currently recording their demo debut album at home while spending time recording singles in different studio settings to ultimately prepare for the production of their much anticipated and long overdue debut studio album. A debut E.P. is expected by the end of the year with the album soon after, no doubt you will be hearing a lot more from this versatile avid songwriting duo.
