The simplest pleasures matter the most. Whether it be the dawn breaking, pouring the first cup of coffee, or enjoying a tree as it sways in the wind, the little things distinguish one day from the next. The day derives color, personality, and even magic from these nuances. Davis John Patton most certainly treasures such details. In similar fashion, his songwriting bears the eloquence of a novelist, allowing the smallest moments to leave big impressions. On his 2020 Poetry EP, the troubadour uses acoustic instrumentation and atmospheric production to translate life’s idiosyncrasies into five introspective and engaging folk anthems.

"I like to find people where they are and help them see the beauty in those moments,” he says. “I’m trying to highlight the profound things happening day-to-day. We can always use more inspiration and peace.

Born and raised in the Midwest, Davis found himself drawn to music at a young age. Mom enrolled him in piano lessons during first grade. Three years later, he picked up guitar. In between choir at church and school, he discovered Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago and embraced acoustic folk. While in college, he independently wrote and recorded the 2018 Forest Park EP, followed by 2019’s From the Garden EP, which received praise from the likes of American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine, and more. Even in the midst of a prolific few years, he still found the time to recognize peace around him.
