Sunny and Ed Davidson are songwriting, brothers who share a passion for creating original conscious music with a style which is strongly influenced by roots reggae. Their music is both spiritual and political and they are supported to deliver their message in glorious three part harmony by female vocalists Maya love of Dragonsfly and Jutta Bannerman, daughter of Kari Bannerman, founder Member of Ghanaian Afro beat band Osibisa. Sunny and Ed have collaborated in various projects over the years, including Dragonsfly and Celtech, and have both played with Avalon Roots at different times. Between them they have gigged in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Israel, Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland and Sunny has toured Europe with world famous singer/rapper/musician/activist Michael Franti. They are now putting their work as a song writing duo front and centre. If you’re a fan of Xavier Rudd, Mike Love, Nahko Bear and others like them then these guys could be right up your street.
Joe Kelly…
It’s easy to consign the idea of the itinerant blues singer to myth (Robert Johnson) or caricature (Seasick Steve) but in 2018, Joe Kelly is as close as you’ll get to the real thing. Having spent the last couple of years calling a dilapidated camper van home and playing hundreds of shows armed with just a beaten-up guitar, a stomping foot and a harmonica, Joe decided that enough was enough, breaking free of the limitations of the one-man band and enlisting the services of a hand picked troupe of the finest local guns for hire, the ‘Royal Pharmacy’.
Debut single ‘Devil At Your Door’, an apocalyptic folk-blues with roots instrumentation and a contemporary edge proved an immediate hit with regional radio DJs earning the band a BBC Horizons grant and setting Joe up for a fruitful summer of festival appearances and an Italian tour.
