Folk musician Arthur Davenport is bright with originality. Arthur puts poetry to music and rewards the listener with songs that amuse and inspire. He sings resonantly while playing his steel-string acoustic guitar "fingerstyle". His song-moods ebb and flow, from passion to lullaby and whimsy to heartbreak, with each song fresh and memorable.

"Using only an acoustic guitar as backup, Arthur Davenport crafts sparse, haunting folk songs with a wry sense of the absurd. Deftly hopping from one vocal personality to another, sometimes within a line, this far-out mountain man keeps the listener guessing." Mike McGuire,

Arthur released 12 original folk ballads on the "Reality Bends" CD, produced and recorded by Jonathan Mayer at Different Fur Recording, in San Francisco. The impressive solo performance, sound production and CD artwork make this album stand out.

Arthur Davenport's musical career spans 25 years of songwriting and performance. He first started playing in the Washington D.C. folk scene in the 1980's and then moved on to the southwest scene during the 90's while living in New Mexico.

Arthur has been featured on National Public Radio performing his song, "Lonesome Cowboy," specially written for a cowboy music compilation album entitled "'Round-em Up!" Arthur now lives in Hawai'i.
