AllMusic Review by

A strong debut from this ex-Sleepytime Trio and Milemarker musician, who crafted the songs that make up The Hushed Patterns of Relief during quiet periods of introspection in the wake of his bands and upcoming fatherhood. Davis creates lush and gently moving fields of sound, accented by the work of his friends with all sorts of instruments -- lap steel, cello, organ, piano, and so forth. Fans of singer/songwriter artists backed by full bands, such as Hayden and Elliott Smith, will find this ten-song release quite pleasing.
