Animal Waves was born out of the creative collaboration between Robert Wayne Davis and Nathaniel Cox.
Hailing from Carbondale, IL, Robert had the blues and rock & roll being hurled at his ears from an early age. The moment a guitar landed in his hands he was immediately hooked and never looked back. Though his guitar has done the singing for most of his musical journey, including opportunities to play/ record with heroes like Slash and an energetic stint with Lauryn Hill, Robert felt the urge to have his voice heard. Teaming up with longtime friend and writing partner Nathaniel Cox, together they crafted a batch of fuzzed out, straight ahead rock tunes that have something to say about the state of affairs of the people "without forgetting how to party".
