May Davis is an emerging singer-songwriter based in Revelstoke, BC. Her unique and unforgettable sound pulls from blues, Americana and old-time country western with smokey vocals that echo vintage crooners like Bobbie Gentry and Janis Joplin, but the unforgettable stories and songs she brings to the stage are all her own. In 2021, Davis released her first full-length album with a vintage music video for the title track, One Way Ticket. She has since released a live-off-the-floor video for her song Devil Who Walk and embarked on a successful summer tour. This summer, Davis headlined at Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival, Tiny Lights and Summer Sounds. This outlaw-folk musician has plenty more tricks up her sleeve for 2023 including new releases so buckle up and stay tuned!
Notable performances include Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival (2022), Blue Heron Festival (2021) , Lethbridge Folk Festival (2021), Guerrilla Gigs (2021) Revelstoke Street Festival (2019) and VIA Rail Artist on Board (2019). Opening act for Elliot Brood, Shred Kelly, Meghan Nash, The Breakmen, Le Vent Du Nord and Scott Cook.
