Daughters of Davis

“In 2014 the girls had been touring the UK in their sparkling new Elddis tour van with the release of their second studio album British Soul after securing a top-ten spot on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. They recently came off two European tours last year supporting artists such as Rebecca Ferguson and The Eels.

“The sisters story hasn’t always been one of luxury. So committed to their music in 2011 the girls gave up everything, quit their jobs and devoted all to their music to become known for their greatest passion. More remarkable is that the duo survived touring for practically two years against the odds in their rusted van, living pretty much off 17p soup and porridge alone before their new van-home was bestowed upon them!”
