The language and poetry of Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis has been one of my favorite singer-songwriters for many years. His lyrics are clever and thoughtful (and sometimes weird and crazy) and his music is both unique and catchy. Not to mention that he’s an incredible performer — his shows are a blast.

On top of that, he created his own language, IS. The language is part of Stu’s art but also an illustration of his philosophy. It’s beautiful and I’ve enjoyed seeing how it has developed. Check out the video above to learn more about it.

And if that piqued your curiosity, enjoy Stu performing songs from a handful of his albums:
