Elise Davis Announces Headling Tour & Support Dates with Donovan Woods
Following a very busy fall that saw Elise Davis open shows for Ray LaMontagne, SUSTO, and Lissie, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter has just announced a headline tour and support tour with Donovan Woods in 2019. Find a full list of tour dates below and on her website.
Earlier this year, Davis released her critically-acclaimed sophomore album Cactus, which was just named one of the The Bitter Southerner's 30 Best Southern Albums of 2018.
Men's Journal recently named Davis one of the "Hottest New Artists of Fall 2018" and said, "Lucinda Williams + Big Star + The Breeders = Elise Davis."
NPR Music's Jewly Hight just said, "Elise Davis is recognized in Nashville songwriting circles for her ability to capture serrated emotions. She's raised the bar even higher with her sophomore album Cactus, teasing out the tensions between youthful infatuation and grown-up confessions of dissatisfaction and desire in songs whose arrangements range from acoustic spareness to sumptuous orchestration." American Songwriter recently praised the album for its "catchy folk/pop tunes that feel as authentic and honest as her lyrical revelations."
The album's first single "Dont Bring Me Flowers," which was co-written with Maren Morris and Frank Romano, was embraced by NPR Music who said, "'Don't Bring Me Flowers' is downright buoyant, flirting with pop melodies and allowing more room for Davis to go big with her formidable voice."
The album has additionaly received support from BrooklynVegan, Billboard, Rolling Stone, and Wide Open Country.
