"I found my trains in East Nashville"
David Bavas is a singer-songwriter originally from the foothills of the Appalachians.
Bavas spent the last 13 years in Seattle, Washington recording 3 albums there, but relocated to East Nashville in the Fall of 2012 to be closer to the growing Americana scene in Nashville.
With his self-titled debut album in 2005, David Bavas and his band The Down Comforter were a showcasing act at SXSW and their music was featured on NPR's All Songs Considered Open Mic. His sophomore release "Songs of Love, Death, and Trains" showcases Bavas's dark voice and his songwriting that comes out of a small-town Americana upbringing. "Songs of Love, Death, and Trains" was recorded and mixed by Kevin Suggs, whose past credits include the Shins, Cat Power, and The Minus Five.
In "Make it Rhyme", Bavas writes about the struggle of living life in the city while still longing for the simplicity of the small town and country life of his youth. "Make it Rhyme" is his third record and was also mixed by Kevin Suggs.
