Father-daughter folk ensemble Davies West will be launching their debut album, The Big Drift, at Bella Union on Saturday 10th June.
The night will be focused on taking you through the stories from the album, from youth, to love and to loss.
Davies West are a Melbourne-based folk outfit comprised of a father, daughter and trio of long-time friends. Alexandra and her father Ross have been singing together since before she can recall. It all began years ago when her family bought a property on Davies Road West in Gippsland. Shivering, starlit sing-a-longs on an outstretched veranda.
This southern region of Victoria has played a prominent role in the entire band’s lives, from camping at Walkerville North to frolicking through the picturesque scenes of Wilson’s Prom.
Fittingly, they named their debut album, The Big Drift, after one of these nostalgic spots. It is a concept album that explores the journey and experiences that shape a lifetime.
Davies West will be joined for their launch by the emerging singing power trio (and some of their best friends), The Charlie’s.
