The Stevenson Ranch Davidians


     Steeped in the aura of the perennially mythologized psychedelic culture of Southern California, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians has, since 2006, revealed itself in shifting configurations; making music influenced by the timeless essence of ‘60s psych, folk and soul, woven with strands of early American roots music. While the lineup has continually coalesced around lead singer and songwriter Dwayne Seagraves, the collective has always had a guiding vision and goal: to create music that seeks to simultaneously demystify and deify the human experience. 

     The other members bring a range of talent, experience and inspiration to The Stevenson Ranch Davidians’ sound. In addition to founding member and Davidians’ bassist, Jessica Latiolait, the band includes producer and long time Brian Jonestown Massacre member Rob Campanella on guitar and lap steel. On drums is Misha Bullock, the sole Englishman in the fold and composer by day. The newest edition to the collective is Sara Minsavage on keyboards, shakes and jangles.

     After releasing their third LP, Amerikana, in 2017 the band embarked on two extensive European tours in 2018 and 2019 while also recording what will be their fourth full length collection of songs. In early 2020 the band began a monthly residency in the Bay Area until being forced into an indefinite hiatus due to various governmental mandates during the Covid outbreak.

     In the summer of 2023 the band reemerged to work on the finishing touches of their latest recordings with plans to jump back into the live music circuit and release a record in 2024.

Wack Magick:

Holy Life:


"The dual quality of intimacy and spaciousness becomes a theme throughout Amerikana as it seeks ever more spiritual paths. It’s unusual to see a band strike such fervosity without becoming overtly religious and it’s testament to the power of music mixed with the concept of communality that we can find other paths to become one with the world around us." - Echoes and Dust


"A flawless raucous composition combining bewildering ‘60s psychedelic spirit, candid rebelliousness and soothsaying, and even manages to tastefully weave in that twang element we usually associate with early American roots music. This is fresh and meaningful, with an in-your-face wake-up call we should all welcome (and even wish on others)"  – The Spill Magazine 

"‘Pulls you into a trance with its swaying, lilting in a mix of psonicadelia in what are mere minutes of spacey zen that lend to a sense of timeliness. With vocals as incredibly powerful as James’ vocalist Tim Booth, the energy factor is ideal in this piece of fantastic music mastery" – Big Takeover Magazine 

"Their blend of ’60s-era psychedelic folk with elements of modern indie Americana becomes a form of protest... With woozy atmospherics that echo Kurt Vile and lyrics that veer into the spiritual, the band uplifts without preaching and encourages without chastising" – The Revue 
"Rough around the edges while serene in between. A surrealist Americana soaked dreampop tinged song that is layer upon layer of chord progressed goodness"  – Jammerzine 

"High sense of energy with the strong and powerful vocals. They have altered the structure of music by incorporating folk, soul, and 60s psychedelic hints into their sound"  – Big Bad Buckle 
"The dreamy, flowing sound of albums past is infused with a fresh sense of 
inspiration, energy and purpose. This is an eclectic, yet cohesive, set of songs that glorify the human spirit while condemning those who seek to destroy it"  – Power of Pop
