#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“David Bavas spent the last 13 years in Seattle, Washington recording 3 albums there, but relocated to East Nashville in the Fall of 2012 to be closer to the growing Americana scene in Nashville. With his self-titled debut album in 2005, David Bavas and his band The Down Comforter were a showcasing act at SXSW and their music was featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered Open Mic. His sophomore release “Songs of Love, Death, and Trains” showcases Bavas’s dark voice and his songwriting that comes out of a small-town Americana upbringing. “Songs of Love, Death, and Trains” was recorded and mixed by Kevin Suggs, whose past credits include the Shins, Cat Power, and The Minus Five.”

David Bavas is a singer-songwriter currently residing in Nashville, TN. He grew up in Pittsburgh and knows the place well. Maybe that is why he decided to have his release party here next week (3/21) for his new album “Lions & Lambs” which is out today. I really want to thank him for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
