“This is the sound of someone bearing a torch.” Bill Callahan
“Dancing on the Edge is singular and strong enough to put Davis in league with some of the very best American songwriters of the past and present.”Uncut (9/10)
“Davis’ talents are immense: vivid imagery and clever one-liners pulling epiphanies from the sacred, mundane, and profane”Rolling Stone
“In his investigation of the human spirit, Davis has learned to embrace worry and wonder as companions for a restless heart. His place at the edge may be perilous, precarious, and occasionally lonely, but it’s got one hell of a view.” – Pitchfork

Todays marks the release of Dancing On The Edge, the boldly ambitious debut album from Ryan Davis & The Roadhouse Band. Initially out in the U.S. on Sophomore Lounge at the end of 2023, the record now has it’s first officual European release.

Dancing On The Edge is a masterpiece of its kind, assembling labyrinthian song cycle, poetic languor and a sense of America’s End in ways that feel both part of a tradition and a re-invention of it. New truths found on old ground, out where it gets a little unstable. Be warned: if you don’t wanna know which way the wind is blowing, look away now. For those that do, buckle up.

Dancing On The Edge is available on CD and as a dbl LP clear vinyl set in an edition of 500. Buy here. Ryan Davis begins the UK leg of his tour tomorrow. All dates below and advance tickets on sale now.
