The country and folk sounds of Gail Davies have been gracing the music industry since 1978. Born in 1948 in Broken Bow, Oklahoma to a popular country singer, Davies moved to Los Angeles after high school, where she married a jazz singer. She, too, sang jazz for a brief time as well, until she and her husband divorced. She then was hired as a session singer and worked with artists like Neil Young and Hoyt Axton. She was given the opportunity before to sit in on a session with John Lennon, as well. A singer-songwriter friend, Joni Mitchell, introduced Davies to her engineer, who taught her how to produce records. After turning down the opportunity to work with Frank Zappa’s band on a European tour, she took up a gig as a singing partner with Roger Miller on The Merv Griffin Show. In 1976, she moved to Nashville, where she landed a job as a songwriter. In 1978, she released a self-titled album.
