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 which she showcased on her fruitful May in July summer tour in 2022. Davis recently supported notable bands including Elliot Brood and Shred Kelly while headlining Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival, Summer Sounds and Tiny Lights. She has plenty more tricks up her sleeve for 2023 including the release of three saucy singles and a deadly music video on the wild horizon, so buckle up and stay tuned!
