Rambler Records Signs John Davis

Rambler Records, an imprint of Brentwood-based independent label group, BHT Entertainment, announces the signing of acclaimed former Superdrag frontman, John Davis.
As the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for Superdrag, the renowned power-pop band hailing from Knoxville, TN, Davis will release his first solo recording this fall on Rambler Records and become the second artist to bow from BHT. Co-founding and heading Superdrag for over 10 years, his British-band influences garnered a considerable fan base in addition to MTV video airplay and two performances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. The band further gained significant exposure as the Davis-written “Sucked Out,” a single from their debut album, Regretfully Yours, became a Top 20 Modern Rock hit.
“John’s music gave us the courage to create Rambler Records and to sign him first,” says BHT Entertainment co-owner, Steve Thomas. “Artists like him come along so rarely that he makes everyone around him strive for a higher level of excellence. I’m honored to know him and to be associated with his recordings.”
After years of mainstream success and leading the noxious life of the stereotypical rocker, Davis experienced a powerful, unexpected conversion and re-embraced his rural Tennessee, church-going roots. He left Superdrag and moved to Nashville where he began working with respected producer, R.S. Field (Billy Joe Shaver, John Mayall, Buddy Guy), whom also shared a fondness for British Invasion bands. Davis’ work with Field led to playing on Allison Moorer’s highly applauded album, The Duel, and then an invite to tour with the country-rock star.
As the spotlight brightens on Moorer’s career, Davis’ will additionally be highlighted this evening as he performs with her on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Visit www.nbc.com/The Tonight Show.com for local listings.
