Guy Davis - Things About Coming My Way Video

Guy Davis was born on 12th of May in 1952. He is an award winning blues guitarist, actor, and musician. I was surprised to learn that he is the son of actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Talent runs in his family.

He says, "his blues music is inspired by the southern speech of his grandmother." He was raised in the New York City area, but he grew up hearing accounts of life in the rural south from his parents and especially his grandparents.

He is supposed to have taught himself the guitar because he did not have the "patience to take formal lessons." He learned by listening to and watching other musicians. All I can say is that he learned well!

Check out the below video and sample mp3s.
