Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Dyer Davis
As a child Dyers’ father, also a musician, turned him on to the music of the 60’s and 70’s. The artists that spoke to him the most were the blues-based rockers, especially the early Jeff Beck records featuring Rod Stewart. This instilled in him the importance of the blues as the key foundation of the music he was drawn to.
What surely separates Dyer from other blues rockers is his exceptional soulful voice, tasteful guitar playing, and strong writing ability. Davis is a natural performer with the charisma and chops to entertain any audience, either solo or with his high energy trio. In late 2021, Dyers long-time supporter, producer/engineer, Billy Chapin (Don Henley, Sister Hazel), reached out to award-winning producer, WildRoots Records Stephen Dees to consider co-producing and co-writing with them. After a couple of sessions Dees was completely won over by Dyers’ talent and engaging personality. So much so that Stephen invited Dyer to perform on the WildRoots latest release “WildRoots Sessions Volume 2”. Dyer delivers a stunning vocal on the track “The Bad Seed”, one of the top tracks off the album.
Now a part of the WildRoots Records team, Dyers’ debut recording “Dog Bites Back” features guests; Grammy nominated Victor Wainwright (keys), Billy Dean (drums), Stephen Dees (bass), and Patricia Ann Dees (saxophone), with Billy Chapin (guitar) and Dyers’ trio David Weatherspoon (drums) & Jacob Barone (bass) and special guests Stan Lynch (The Heartbreakers – drums), Doug Woolverton (trumpet), & Mark Earley (bari sax)
