May Davis wants to buy a One Way Ticket to you in her latest single — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
A vintage love song captured in modern magic, the B.C. singer-songwriter’s latest track is nimble, enchanting number that rides the rails between blues, folk and jazz, with a backdrop of spry acoustic guitar and banjo, ropy bass, brushed snare and crossing-bell accents supporting Davis’s honey-and-sandpaper tones and playfully enticing lyrics. It’s a track that feels timeless yet totally fresh, classic yet completely alive and in the moment.
Hitting that sweet spot is just one of Davis’s specialties. We all have those deep, life moments where you feel like you are in the right place, at the right time, doing what you are meant to do. That is how sjhe feels when she performs. Her energy radiates from her in the form of soulful lyrics and raw, genuine vocals. Often compared to the likes of legendary vocalists like Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks and Norah Jones, Davis has been coined to have “the voice of an angel hit by a whiskey truck” and is sure to intoxicate audiences with her witty stage presence and folk-inspired Americana music. She released her first solo album Denim Blues in 2019 and recently became a recipient of AmplifyBC’s Career Development grant.
Produced, mixed & mastered by Shawn Stephenson at Becoming Sound, the track features Steve Brockley on drums and percussio, Jesse Lee on bass and Matt Johnston on banjo, with Davis on guitar and vocals. Listen to One Way Ticket below and catch up with her on her website, Facebook and Instagram.
