How yours truly was introduced to Steven Davis: that relentlessly attentive Tom Estey.  One of those intensely involved promotion guys who appreciates the greatness in special artists.  Steven is THAT!  He has been a singer and songwriter for quite a while - moving from the Midwest to Nashville and then to Los Angeles.  Actually, he has moved MORE than that - and his story is worth your attention.  

As a little one, Steven was singing Gospel.  But he developed an early interest in the great singers of the day.  Those Great American Songbook classics that "stick" with you through adulthood.  He loved Sinatra and Tony Bennett.  He felt the way that they sang.  Years later, here he is, with all that grateful memory intact - and adding so much of his own soul to treasured standards.  This man has traveled quite a bit in his time.  And played in the big cities across the USA - as well as overseas. Because singing is so second nature to him, it was extremely challenging when he developed something that would affect his voice.  A few years ago, he developed a "vocal bleed."  And he needed therapy for a year.  As well as silence for weeks - before his strength returned.  

He met Josh Charles (not the actor!) - who is one of these rare producers who has a third eye for talent - these two hit it off in Music City.  They decided that it was time for Steven to spread his wings and bring his music to a new audience.  A younger audience that might gravitate to a 17 piece Big Band, led by the award-winning Andy Farber.  They figured that it might impress a few people (LOL!) if they recoreded the project at Capital Records - Studio A - where Ol' Blue Eyes and Nat King Cole used to visit.  Well, it worked.  YOUNG and older are feeling the vibe of yesteryear - and you will, too.  Join us on 7/26 - in The Chat Room!
