Morgan Davis grew up in Detroit during the 1950's, absorbing the music of the times - early rock and roll and rhythm and blues, along with the beginnings of the Motown sound. In 1968, Davis moved to Toronto, Canada, where he began to seriously study the music he loved - early country blues. He took every opportunity to see many touring blues players during the late 60's and 70's - Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, James Cotton, Booker White. He began playing professionally in 1971, and through the kindness and generosity of artists like Sunnyland Slim and Johnny Shines, Davis learned from and played with these giants of the blues. After Howlin' Wolf passed away, Davis had the chance to back up Wolf's guitar player of 25 years, Hubert Sumlin. Over the years he has backed up and opened for Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Dr. John, Eric Bibb and John Hammond.
Davis is a solo artist, interpreting the blues with a respect for its' traditions as well as writing contemporary blues. He plays electric guitar, slide guitar, and 3 string cigar-box guitar. He tours constantly and plays over 200 dates a year across North America and Europe.
In 2004, Davis was awarded the JUNO - Canada's Grammy - for Blues Album of the Year. He fully expects to be on the road for the rest of his life, playing the music he loves.
