WNC resident Barrett Davis, musician and father, takes a leap of faith


In the woods of Lake Toxaway, Barrett Davis is growing his family and his music. Davis recently released his debut album, “The Ballad of Aesop Fin” and the first single “Quiver,” featuring Woody Platt, formerly of Steep Canyon Rangers.

The work has been a slow and sometimes painful process, but one that comes from real life. Davis and his wife, Johanna, are parents of Feather, 7, and Fern, 4, and he has double duty as both a carpenter and a musician. He is finding peace through it all in the love of his family.

“I own a construction company and juggle that with music,” he said. “The most important thing at the end of the day is just sitting down and actually doing some homework with Feather.”

Davis said the small moments add up and are a big deal – even brushing his kids’ teeth can become a treasured time together.

“You notice how much they miss you and how much they need you around,” he said. “I think it’s really nice.”

By comparison, Davis said his relatively small family is “pretty easy.”

“I only have two kids,” he said. “I’m a sibling of six. My sister has seven.”
