Davenport Rex is a Detroit based studio duo focused on creating music that is enjoyable and not too easily classified. We work to write melodies that you will remember after the song stops, and use arrangements, chord progressions and song forms that are unique.
The power of today’s sampling and recording technology provides a broad arrangement palette, including synthetic and full symphonic orchestration, but we build from a pop/rock group at the core, with bass, drums, guitars and keys as the foundation.
We are two guys - Jim Murphy and Dave Gillespie - and a Mac, supported in both albums by the incomparable Danielle Blanchard on vocals (danielleblanchard.com).
We hope you like the compositions, lyrics, arrangements and performances – please listen and contact us, we’d love to hear from you!
