South Carolina Country-Blues artist and singer-songwriter Davis Coen will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio show hosted by King of Cool, Jimmy Star, along with his Cool Crowd of cohosts to discuss his music, career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is radio’s coolest hit entertainment show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.
Davis Coen’s most recent accomplishments have included featured music on the ‘House Of Blues Radio Hour’ and NPR’s ‘Morning Edition’ & ‘World Cafe’ programs. Also, he has contributed original music to the DVD release of Martin Scorsese’s PBS special ‘The Blues’; and a couple of performances on a documentary about the music of late-great Hillcountry blues matriarch Jesse Mae Hemphill, titled ‘Dare You To Do It Again’. He also receives steady play on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio’s Channel 70 ‘Bluesville’, in addition to hundreds of blues-related broadcasts domestically and worldwide.
Coen has been touring the U.S. since his teens, either as a solo guitar & vocal act, or accompanied by a small rhythm combo, performing at clubs, bars, and festivals throughout the Southeast and mid-south. He has billed on numerous prestigious annual blues events such as the King Biscuit in Helena, Arkansas and several times at Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale, MS. He has also enjoyed numerous tours of Europe, promoting over a half-a-dozen album releases, most notably appearing at the world-famous Bellinzona Blues Festival in Switzerland. Coen has shared a bill or opened for many endured blues artists such as James Cotton, Junior Wells, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Big Jack Johnson, T-Model Ford, David “Honeyboy” Edwards, and Britain’s John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers. He has also billed with such alternate-genre performers as Wynton Marsalis, Richie Havens, Mountain, Eric Burdon, Tito Puente and Toots & The Maytals.
In recent years Davis has played a strong role in clean-up efforts along coastal Mississippi for hurricane Katrina victims, musically honoring the Mayors of various coastal cities, and was given an achievement award for his conglomerate relief involvement. His latest album “Hard Luck Café” is gaining significant airplay and on XM/Sirius with his first single “Mile After Mile.” Hard Luck Café will be out on Spectra Records later in 2013.
