Blues circuit guitarist/singer Davis Coen's most recent accomplishments have included featured music on multiple popular national radio programs, including the 'House Of Blues Radio Hour', and NPR's 'Morning Edition' and 'World Cafe'. Also somewhat current, his original recorded music on the DVD release of Martin Scorsese's PBS special 'The Blues'; and a couple of performances on the DVD documentary about the music of the late-great Hillcountry Mississippi blues matriarch Jesse Mae Hemphill, titled 'Dare You To Do It Again'. He also often receives steady play on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio's Channel 74 'B.B. King's Bluesville', in addition to hundreds of blues programs both national and international.
Coen has been touring the U.S. since his teens, either as a solo guitar & vocal act, or commonly accompanied by bass and drums in trio line-up. Based out of Memphis, Tennessee, Davis commonly plays at clubs, bars, and festivals throughout the Southeast and mid-south. He has also enjoyed a dozen tours of Europe, promoting over a half-a-dozen album releases. He has shared a bill or opened for many classic blues artists such as James Cotton, Junior Wells, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Big Jack Johnson, T-Model Ford, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, and John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers. He has also shared bills with such non-blues performers as Richie Havens, Mountain, Eric Burdon, Tito Puente and Toots & The Maytals.
These past few years Davis has played at a clean-up kickoffs across most of the Gulf Coast cities of Mississippi for Katrina victims- performing before several mayors, and was honored with an achievement award for his participation in the conglomerate MS Coast relief efforts.
