Bryn Davies (born August 22, 1976) is an American bassist, cellist, and occasional pianist. She grew up in Livermore, California. In 1997 she majored in Jazz Performance at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. There she met mandolin player Billy Bright and guitarist Brian Smith, with whom she formed the Two High String Band.[1] In 1997, Bryn began working with Peter Rowan as the Texas Trio,[2] which toured the US[3][4] and eventually would become the Peter Rowan & Tony Rice Quartet.[5]

In 2004 Davies moved to Nashville, Tennessee. From January to August 2007 she worked with Patty Griffin on the Children Running Through tour. Davies has an extensive discography, playing on records with legends such as Guy Clark, The Peter Rowan & Tony Rice Quartet, Old and in the Gray, and Don Edwards. Bryn has toured with such luminaries as Marty Stuart, The Tony Rice Unit, Darrell Scott, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale and Shawn Camp (just to name a few). Along with her many studio and side projects, Davies currently tours with Darrell Scott, The Tony Rice Unit, and Jack White.
