Julian Davis is a 17-year-old, flatpicking guitarist phenomenon and singer from Pittsburg, Kansas. He walks, talks, sings, and looks like someone straight out of the 1940s or 50s, and his fast and fiery guitar playing encourages even seasoned professionals to want to step up their picking game.

Julian and his bluegrass band, Julian Davis and the Hay-Burners, were featured on season 11 of America’s Got Talent and they flew to LA a few times for the production.

Julian left home at an early age to play music on the road, traveling to cities all over the country. He currently calls the Lawrence and Kansas City areas home.

At 16 years old, Julian won first place in the Kansas State Flatpicking Championship and Mandolin Championship. Julian also won first place in the Hillberry Arkansas 2016 flatpicking and mandolin competitions.

Julian also has two albums released, “Who Walks In When I Walk Out” and “Make Americana Great Again,” both featuring plenty of original songs to tap your foot to as well as covers of traditional (and not-so-traditional) tunes to switch it up!

His high energy show is one you absolutely can’t afford to miss, including hot fiddle playing from either Shannon O’Shea or Dylan Hawf, special guests, and plenty of acrobatic stunts and stage antics from his upright bass player, Seth Campbell, who brings rockabilly, jazz, and classical influence to the mix while also singing.
