Surprise Me Mr. Davis is an electro-folk band consisting of folksinger Nathan Moore, the members of avant-rock band The Slip and the newest member, dazzling pianist Marco Benevento. They formed in 2003 in Boston while Moore was visiting The Slip at their apartment and the Blizzard of 2003 hit. They were snowed in at the Barr brothers Mission Hill home for five days with a brand new stereo microphone and computer.This storm was the catalyst for a home recording session. In 2005 they ventured into the Breakglass Studio in Montreal to track some songs which were released in a limited edition on their Only in Montreal EP. The EP is a supercharged electro-folk record with many a tender moment. Their latest release "That Man Eats Morning For Breakfast" is available through The Royal Potato Family label.
