One of the most distinctive figures in the NZ musical landscape is Delaney Davidson. Over a series of albums and compelling live performances he has presented his often jarring yet beautiful songs like 'Some Strange Spook Outlaw Phantom'.
NZ Arts Foundation Laureate Recipient 2015, Winner of the 2013 New Zealand Music Awards Country Album of the Year, Three-time winner of the APRA New Zealand Country Music Song of the Year 2012, 2013 & 2014, Voodoo Rythym One Man Band World Champion Zurich 2011, Saddest Song World Champion Berlin 2010.
His inspirations range from Hank Williams and Howlin' Wolf to The Birthday Party, from Johnny Cash through Suicide to Buster Keaton. Reveling in the darker side of things, Davidson's lyrical content dredges up classic murder ballards, songs with a deep insight into the human condition, and hypnotic trance takes on old blues classics. All liberally laced with an abiding sympathy for human quirks, failure, foibles and triumphs. His rupled stage persona combines an unconventional and unforgettable voice with a wry and twisted sense of humor.
