The Robin Davis Duo features multi-instrumentalist Robin Davis and his wife Jimi Davis.
Based in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, the pair blends old time bluegrass with their original material, which draws inspiration from punk, pop, and folk.
Robin showcases impeccable flatpicking guitar and leads the duo with old time fiddle.
Robin also plays mandolin in Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band, which features Anders Beck from Greensky Bluegrass, Travis Book from The Infamous Stringdusters, Jon Stickley from Jon Stickley Trio, and Andy Thorn from Leftover Salmon.
About ten years ago, Robin lived in Durango, Colorado and searched for a bass player. He looked no further than his girlfriend, then named Jimi Giles, and taught her the bluegrass basics. Two weeks later, the two started playing gigs across the Southwest. Now married, Jimi Davis adds clawhammer banjo to the duo's sound.
The Robin Davis Duo released their first self-titled album in the Fall of 2015. In 2017, the duo joined Matt Cottle on drums to form grunge-grass trio Dreem Machine. Their self-titled rock and roll record released the summer of 2022.
Currently, the duo resides in Pagosa Springs, building their home recording studio and touring the mountains of Colorado and beyond.
