Dave Davies To Release Album With Son Russ

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on February 9, 2017

in News

Dave Davies will release his new album, Open Road, on March 31 via Red River Entertainment.

Recorded in collaboration with his son, Russ Davies, who is an EDM producer and has recorded under the names of Abakus and Cinnamon Chasers.

Dave said “Working with my son was a delight and he made me realize a lot about myself… I feel an almost strange magnetic loving energy pervading through the whole work… I found it very demanding emotionally and I wanted it to have integrity… Even though Russ is my son we happened to both gel with the ideals, stories and motives of the work; the honesty, the purity of it, and its deceptive simplicity and wonder of it.”

Russ added “Working with Dave is a fluid process and we both seem to share some kind of psychic connection and understanding of how the song is forming and where we want it to go… with this album I really had the desire to produce this record in the most organic way I could, and try to capture some of the old rock spirit whilst bringing some new energy to the table. I feel we’ve created an honest and natural sound, un-perfectionist and rough at the edges, but with plenty of character and vibe – we are both proud of how the record turned out.”

Dave Davies is, of course, one of the founders of the legendary Kinks and has, on his own, released seven previous solo albums. Writer Bill Crowley said of Davies “As lead guitarist and co-founder of the Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock. His distinctive guitar style went on to have major impact on several key guitar-rock styles, including heavy metal and punk. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Dave’s massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day.”
