Jamie Davis- Internationally Acclaimed Vocalist. New music production honoring the great Baritones of our time.
James E Davis holds a position amongst the pantheon of great male vocalists with a compelling full deep, baritone voice and passion for his craft that leaves his audiences uplifted and “feelin’ good… really good”.
Jamie’s musical education began in the choir of his father’s Pentecostal Church in Mansfield, Ohio. His unique bass-baritone voice brought life to liturgical music sung in Latin, Bach, Schumann, Mahler and Rameau’s French compositions. There followed a spell in the US Army where he sang not only the memorable ‘show tunes’, but also a wide range of swing, jazz and blues for the Special Services elite group.
After studies under the renowned New York vocal coach Edward Boatner, he moved to San Francisco securing opportunities to perform with Milt Jackson, Eddie Henderson, Melba Moore and Pharaoh Saunders. The year 2000 brought exhilarating performances with The Count Basie Orchestra. On that experience Davis reflects, “Having all that sound behind you is just amazing. You’ve got to ride that current.”
A repertoire from Cole Porter to Stevie Wonder to Charles Mingus, confirms he possesses the flexibility and sexy sophistication by his effortless delivery to stand with any of the great masters. Jamie Davis has been described as a fine wine which has stood the test of time, constantly innovating jazz classics, ‘rolling out’ the blues and performing with one foot in the past and the other in ‘today’
In the creator’s own words: I have loved jazz music from my earliest years. I have personally experienced the love, passion and acceptance of the baritone voice as a viable entity to the music world. My life as a jazz vocalist has given me the opportunity to see the world! I’m determined to bring the era of great male baritones back! My ambition is to rejuvenate this long absent vocal art. Your contribution will help to preserve this legendary music and vocal talent!
James has started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising $35,000. The fund raised will be used for the musical charts, package design, studio costs, musician fees, manufacturing costs including reproduction fees.
