Davis, a 23-year-old Florida-based artist, is described as a tasteful guitarist and a natural performer. “His dynamic performing completely satisfies any aching desire for something heartfelt, original, brilliant, and exciting,” said Victor Wainwright.

Davis’ talent and engaging personality won over award-winning producer, WildRoots Records Stephen Dees after long-time supporter, producer and engineer, Billy Chapin (Don Henley, Sister Hazel) reached out to Dees to consider co-producing and co-writing for the young artist in late 2021.

Dees was so impressed with the young musician that after a few sessions, he extended an invitation to Davis to perform on the WildRoots latest release “WildRoots Sessions Volume 2″. Davis delivered a stunning vocal performance on the track “The Bad Seed”, noted as one of the top tracks off the album.

Victor Wainwright went on to say after working closely with Davis, “he transcends the norm, while tipping his hat to the greats that came before”.
