Hi, my name is David John Williams and I have a musical project called Danvers. I’ve had this project for as long as I’ve played music, but rarely been confident enough to share it. Since about 2011 I decided this needed to change and I’ve now collected scraps of work here and there, slowly creating a small measure of content I’d like to share.
I’ve drawn great amounts on inspiration from older American troubadours such as Tom Waits and Neil Young, whilst more recently I’ve become excited by artists like Cat Power, Cass McCombs and Phosphorescent.
My newest work, Paper Skin is the first attempt I’ve made at self-production and my proudest musical achievement to date. If you like the song, don’t keep it to yourself.
