Two years after Wild Moccasins drummer Avery Davis, 24, released his debut EP as solo artist -Us — and ahead of his performance at this year’s FPSF — the multi-instrumentalist will release his sophomore effort, Contact. The forthcoming five-track EP is full of dance-y, R&B-infused electro-pop and raspy falsetto singing, a departure from his previous work. Davis, who performs shirtless and with colorful makeup, notes that many of his earlier melancholy songs weren’t fun to play live. “I’m not sad anymore, so all of my new songs are happy.”
Davis recently played Day for Night and SXSW festivals. He wears a platinum and diamond cross pendant, white gold and diamond Riviera necklace, and 90-inch white gold and diamond necklace, all price upon request at Deutsch & Deutsch.
