Prolific songwriter and musician Ron Davies wrote over 600 songs in his lifetime and has been called “the quintessential poet” and “the songwriter’s writer” by his peers. One of his best known compositions is the 1970 hit song “It Ain’t Easy”, recorded by David Bowie, Three Dog Night, Long John Baldry and more recently, Jack White’s Raconteurs.
