“Proof positive that guitar rock is alive and well. Jason is a great guitar player who knows how to serve the song & still hang ten.“
– Reeves Gabrels, (solo artist, David Bowie, The Cure, NIN, Rolling Stones)
The music industry is not a kind place.
Yet Jason Davis has been one of the fortunate, garnering respect within the music community for his formal educational background, performance and compositional capabilities, and years of experience within the music industry. As a self-described “sonic anarchist”, his maverick guitar styling, melodic/compositional sensibility, and “left-of-center” musical disposition has led to artist relationships with Parker Guitars, Randall Amplifiers, Emerald Acoustic Guitars, Lava Cable, and Reverend Guitars.
In addition, Davis’ playing and compositions are constantly heard in all forms of media – even though he may not be immediately recognized. Davis has written and performed music that has appeared on “Saturday Night Live”, “The Tonight Show”, “Access Hollywood”, E!’s “True Hollywood Stories” series, and countless others. He composed the theme to Court TV’s “Under Fire” series and has contributed music to the NFL, NBA, ESPN, and Fox Sports to use in all of their game and player coverage.
Davis has also performed and shared the stage with such diverse artists as Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie/The Cure/NIN/Ozzy), MC Lyte, American Idol’s Clay Aiken, Days Of The New, Cee-Lo of the Grammy Award-winning group Gnarls Barkley, The Nixon’s Zac Malloy, Richard Lloyd (Television), and the Grammy Award-nominated Nappy Root.
On any given day, Davis can be found spending time with his lovely wife and children, performing with a menagerie of musical counterparts, constantly swapping out effects on his pedal board, serving as the “evil corruptor of youth” for his music students at a college in his locale, and rethinking ways to take over the world with six strings, a cranked amplifier, and a renegade spirit.
