Australian Folk Music Awards Finalists (Artist of the Year, 2021) Rich Davies & The Low Road deliver a ‘foot stomping contemporary folk attack’ (Mick Thomas – Weddings Parties, Anything), featuring trad-roots instrumentation, 5 part gang-vocals, and emotive narrative-driven songs delivered with a ferocity any rock band would be proud of. Drawing from Davies’ Scottish heritage they combine their love of folk traditions – encompassing celtic, mountain music, and even shanty – with 60’s Folk Revival influences and a healthy dose of Springsteen-meets-the-Pogues attitude into a rousing sweat-drenched symphony of wild, visceral, contemporary folk’n’roll. They’ll charm you with wit, banter, and heart-on-sleeve story-telling, then the moment you let your guard down will bring you to tears with a heart-wrenching ballad.

2021 saw Rich Davies & The Low Road showcase the band’s charismatic and take-no-prisoners live performance for Folk Alliance International, subsequently releasing that performance as an EP (with accompanying YouTube clips). Davis also participated in the Global Music Match program co-presented by Sounds Australia and featuring artists from 17 countries. In 2020 Davies released a solo reimagining of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born In The USA’ album using the darker folk palette of ‘Nebraska’, aptly titled ‘Born in Nebraska’. Davies’ song Dirt Under My Nails has previously been recorded by The Bushwhackers and nominated for Song of the Year at the 2018 Golden Guitar Awards.

The Low Road are currently recording the follow-up to first album ‘Ghosts’ with Myles Mumford for release in 2022.
