Delaney Davidson Profile

“Part wandering minstrel, part traveling salesman…” reads the bio on Delaney Davidson’s website. “Singer-songwriter, noir protagonist, promotional coyote, one-man band, production svengali...”

Delaney Davidson is all these things and more. He has been a recipient of an Arts Foundation Laureate and is a three-time winner of the APRA Best Country Music Song Award. He has starred in films, performed in plays and collaborated with many of the country’s best-known musical figures: Neil Finn, Tami Neilson, Barry Saunders and Marlon Williams, among others. And yet he remains a mercurial figure: artistically indefinable, forever in motion. As the bio says, “part man, part wheel.”
