Info & Discography

Raised in the East Bay of San Francisco by tone-deaf non-musical parents, Spud Davenport was probably bitten by a radioactive spider, therefore explaining his multiple musical abilities.

Through the years, while trying to prove this theory, Spud wrote some songs and played some Drums.

Owing much to quirky artists like Warren Zevon and Tom Waits, Spud Davenport spins his tales of woe and WHOA with his Accordion, Piano, Guitar, Drums, and Kitchen Skillets.

Sometimes sarcastic, sometimes sad, sometimes so silly, Spud sings and screams the stories of the hopeless, yet hopeful.

In March 2007, Spud released his debut album, Green, showcasing his many abilities including Producer.

Spud also played Drums and sang in The Shamey Jays, an original Hard Rock / Blues / Garage band in San Diego.

The Shamey Jays’ album, “Your Pretty Packages”, was released in 2009 and that year was nominated for Rock Album of the Year by The San Diego Music Awards Committee.

“Currently, I am working with my songwriting buddy, Charlie Recksieck, on a new band called Leaders In The Clubhouse. We released our debut Album, Won, in June of 2015 and hope to get on the road to support it. The style is a modern-retro ’70’s vibe we call Fun Rock. Lots of early influences like ELO, Queen, 10cc, and of course, our favorite, Randy Newman.”

More Stuff going on all the time, right…? oh Yea
