With A Blend Of American Rock Roots And Folk influence, Canadian/American Artist Davie Simmons Seamlessly Creates Art That Appeals To A Wide Audience.

Known to some as the Canadian Celtic Cowboy, Davie Simmons churns out folk influenced rock. In doing so, he paints a vivid picture of what it was like to grow up in Canada during the swinging sixties.

Having been part of the music industry for more than 40 years, Simmons has the chops and the instrumental talent to cover a wide variety of sounds as well as write his unique brand of music that appeals to a wide variety of audiences.

While The Beatles were sweeping the world with their sweeping brand of pop music, there was a whole wealth of music developing elsewhere. This is where the musical sounds of Davie Simmons began in the rural countryside of Canada. A talented multi-instrumentalist with a wide variety of influences, Simmons began crafting his unique style of culturally driven “world music” if you will, incorporating guitar as well as the less mainstream Irish drum called a Bodhran.

The resulting experience is a vivid sound that blends rock and traditional music from around the world, but with the modern conventions of popular rock music. Some of his most notable performances include being on stage in a number of important musical locations including Edinburgh, Las Vegas, New York City as well as being featured on the Scottish Highland Games.

Recorded using songs that were recorded over four decades, “Soundtrack for Finding David” is an accumulation of years of experience. In addition, he combines talented musical and instrumental arrangement, and influences from  a number of cultures, culminating into one of the most unique musical experiences in years. Simmons has been considering to begin touring soon in the San Francisco area, a place that he has called home for a number of years. You can learn more about Davie Simmons, his new album and the artists he is collaborating with including his wife Angel Firestar.
