Davis Coen is some place Buckwheat Zydeco, Booker T. Jones, Johnny Winter, Hot Tuna and Stevie Ray Vaughan are not.
The Westport native and Staples grad sits atop the Roots Music Report’s blues chart — a very influential radio programmers’ poll. Those other famous artists are eating Davis’s dust.
His “Magnolia Land” CD is also moving up the chart on XM BB King’s Bluesville satellite radio station, thanks to his many fans. (Click here to request the current favorites: “Change in the Weather,” “Country Girl Blues,” “Eyes Like Diamonds” and “You Gonna Miss Me” — scroll to the bottom of the list.)
Davis was here last week, for his parents’ legendary 4th of July party. Sounds like his fireworks are still going off.
