The Davisson Brothers Band has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles over many a country road, performing more than 240 shows a year, from rough bars and rowdy honky-tonks to beautiful concert halls and festival stages. Their endurance and intense drive can be accounted for by one simple fact…they come from the finest, hardest working people to walk the Appalachian soil.
It could be said that theDavisson Brothers Band has been two centuries in the making. Brothers Chris and Donnie Davisson, joined by their cousin Sammy Davisson and childhood best friend Aaron Regester, are the culmination of generations of the finest fiddlers, pickers and singers to emerge from West Virginia’s rich musical heritage. Music isn’t just born in them, it flows thru their bloodline.
The Davissons grew up in the hollers and farming fields of Clarksburg W.Va., population 16,000, a town founded in 1785 by their grandfather Major Daniel Davisson and his siblings. The musical legacy that’s been passed down through generations reflects the values of living simply, fishing, hunting, living off the land, and above all else, loving your family. These values are ever-present in the band’s music, laden with familial harmonies and pure mountain soul.
Immersed in so much music over the years, it is no surprise that the Davisson Brothers Band has become the premiere live band in the Southeast. Now, with a national push, the Davisson Brothers Band is poised to take their success nationwide as they gain exposure to a new legion of fans. Their story and their music is as rich as the soil under their feet. With the release of their single “Jesse James,” they are writing the next chapter in the history of the Davisson family, never forgetting what came before them.
