Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello, Cracker, John Hiatt)

An in-demand, versatile session cat and bandmember with artists spanning Richard Thompson, Randy Newman, Buddy Guy, Heather Nova, Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams, Elton & Leon, Katy Sagal, Chuck Prophet, Wanda Jackson, Abra Moore, Shelby Lynne, Buddy Guy, Cracker and Rachel Yamagata, to cite a few….Davey Faragher’s main gig for the past two decades has been anchoring Elvis Costello’s Imposters.


Faced with the daunting task of replacing Bruce Thomas in Declan’s main backing ensemble, Davey afforded his bandleader a soulful, rhythm and blues foundation as heard on such fine patters as The Delivery Man (2004), Momofuku (2008) and National Ransom (2010).


On Elvis acclaimed 2019 platter Look Now, Faragher did the best imitation of Bruce Thomas since…Bruce Thomas!     


Davey’s weapons of choice are usually vintage (and vintage style) Fender Precision, DeTemple Hofner, and Dan Armstrong basses.
