We first heard from Shane Davis in October of last year upon the release of his eponymous solo album. That record introduced us to an Alabama native with a penchant for Classic Rock-inspired Rock & Roll. For the better part of a decade he and his band Black Market Salesman rocked the Huntsville area with their brand of blues-fueled hippie jams. Their 2018 EP “Brainstorm” was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Joey Huffman (Matchbox 20. Cee-Lo Green, Soul Asylum) and was featured in Relix magazine.
During the pandemic Shane began working on his solo material. Soon The Shane Davis Group was born. On the roster are; Ben Kendall (guitar), and Shaun Bloodsworth (drums) and Shane’s longtime collaborator Billboard-charting artist Izzy Miller on bass. Earlier this year the crew traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to start tracking new material. Producer Joey Huffman has once again taken the reins in the studio. On May 28, 2021 the band released the first product of these sessions.
“Back Burner” is the brand new single from The Shane Davis Group. The track is a rootsy Southern Rock torch song featuring the full SDG line-up with the addition of Huffman on keys. His Hammond adds a nice Dylan-meets-Skynyrd vibe to the mellow rocker. Shane has maintained the soulful Stonesy-feel of his earlier work. However, the production on “Back Burner” gives the track a more polished and accessible feel. Lyrically he laments being sidelined by his love. The song’s rocking verse leads to an immediately memorable Pop chorus.
With excellent performances from the entire band, The Shane Davis Group’s Back Burner has a timeless and radio-ready sound. Check it out below. You can also hear the track on the Deep Indie Dive playlist. Follow the links below to connect with The Shane Davis group.
