"Nick Jonah Davis is one of the select band of living solo acoustic guitar players whose music is not only virtuosic, but genuinely exciting" - fRoots Magazine

'Nottingham-based Nick Jonah Davis is a formidable guitarist in the tradition of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, etc. Though there’s a clear comparison to be made with the monolithic John Fahey, perhaps there’s a more British sensibility to his playing. Making use of modal tunings to create a resonating whole, Davis’s spindly melodies sometimes hither and thither on top, whilst at other times forthright lines are prominent.The effect is always a thoroughly rich and nourishing, highly spirited series of wordless tales.' - Crushing Death and Grief

'Beautiful, sensitive, and nuanced solo guitar from the UK. Great composition and originality intertwined with traditional English and American Primitive guitar stylings.' - Grasstops Recordings

‘He adopts a glorious, deeply resonant sound, and spins out his finger-picked melodies into what become beautiful filigreed narrative pieces.’ - The Liminal
