Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist Aaron Davis has spent half of his life in Kentucky, the latter half in Wyoming, and another lifetime carving out a humble existence as an independent recording artist in the country’s least populated state. He’s chiefly known as co-founder of decade long alt-folk/alt-country band Screen Door Porch, for his eclectic solo ramblings and the accompanying project Aaron Davis & the Mystery Machine, and as a studio engineer-producer and session player at his Three Hearted Recording Studio in Hoback, Wyoming. Aaron was awarded a Music Performance and Songwriting Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts, “a merit-based honor for an artist’s work in their field,” which spurred his tenth release, Catalyst. Aaron (vocals, banjo, harmonica, guitars—acoustic, electric, resonator, lap steel) and the texture experts of The Mystery Machine work the lesser-worn corners of the American musical fabric through an unconventional lens.

The two met in Nashville playing for the same cover band in some out-of-town dive, and immediately discovered an affinity for each other.

Their sound, built on a taut configuration of cello, mandolin, banjo and guitar, speeds like a train past polite definitions of acoustic music into the grittier, rowdier spaces of the bluegrass world.
