Davey Faragher

Trust me, you've heard him!

An demand session cat (Richard Thompson, Randy Newman, Buddy Guy, Heather Nova, Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams, Elton & Leon, Katy Sagal, Chuck Prophet, Wanda Jackson, Abra Moore, Shelby Lynne, Buddy Guy, and Rachel Yamagata, to cite a few)....

 

... and band member (The Faragher Brothers, Cracker, John Hiatt Band, Elvis Costello’s Imposters)....

 

Davey Faragher is an exemplary pocket /melodic player and harmony vocalist. Faced with the daunting task of replacing Bruce Thomas in Declan's main backing ensemble, Davey afforded his bandleader a more soulful, rhythm and blues disposition, which, to my ears, made Costello relevant in the 21st Century as evidenced on such fine patters as The Delivery Man (2004), Momofuku (2008) and National Ransom (2010)
