After Davis heard Chuck Berry at the age of 12, he was compelled to pick up his first guitar – a Gibson 335. From California's Inland Empire, music shaped his childhood. Davis immersed himself in the iconic songwriting of such artists as Nirvana, Bob Dylan, and John Lennon, as well as the euphoric melodies of The Strokes and The Libertines. This fusion of musical interests gives Davis a unique sound all his own. His guitar tones are both unique and technical, while his vocal range gives him the freedom to hit Little Richard notes in an effortlessly cool manner. His sound has been compared to everything from Bob Dylan to Arcade Fire; Kings of Leon to Beastie Boys; John Lennon to James Brown.
Davis performs with a full backing band. He delivers Rock & Roll in a way that is both fresh and nostalgic. Currently working on his debut album, Davis hopes to push the Rock & Roll genre forward into new territories, writing honest and modern songs about timeless emotions. Davis has been recording all throughout the U.S., everywhere from an RV trailer park in Utah to the legendary Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville. Davis' writing taps into the history of American youth culture, just as his influences did with their songs. With a nod to the past, Davis looks forward.
