Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir Return to Charleston Music Hall

Nashville songwriter Patrick Davis is returning to his home state of South Carolina to celebrate the release of his new EP, Where Does It Go, on Friday, October 27th at Charleston Music Hall. This venue's intimate space is perfect for this event - Patrick Davis is known for his storytelling abilities, and coupled with his 11-piece band featuring horns and his own family members, this night is going to be unforgettable. We had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the new music, and love the relatable lyrics, particularly in his new song "Million Miles Away", which gives a nod to our hometown of Charleston. Check out and purchase the EP on iTunes or patrickdavismusic.com when it's released October 20th, and join us to help them celebrate it at the Charleston Music Hall Friday, October 27th!  Get tickets here.
