"Sun-Sentinel"

“Julie Davis is a confident young singer with compelling stage presence...she has a a wry kittenish voice
with claws...Kelly Dow, is a brilliant guitarist who chooses unexpected chords and arrangements… their
music is full of excitement.”
- Matt Schudel


"City Link Music Issue"

“Soul Times Two”… “Julie Davis’ sensual purr is used to great effect as she goes from coquettish to introspective, accompanied by Kelly Dow’s multi-textured playing. Standards are revived, but Davis and Dow’s love for the music and sterling chops keep them from sounding routine. Davis is also an engaging performer, and we guarantee you won’t take your eyes off the charismatic singer...The real thing, (they are) deeply rooted in the classic jazz tradition but with a playfulness that keeps the music fresh and fun.”
- Bob Weinberg


"Heat Beat"

“They have perfected a seamless blend of vocal instrument and stringed instrument (since ‘94). Julie is a
singer that takes chances: she is a stylist that seeks an original twist on everything she performs. Kelly’s
versatility on the guitar allows him the freedom to swing from blues to bebop, rock to classical and back
without losing the beat or the feeling.”
- Michael Mattox


"Jam Magazine"

“Sleek and Sensual and Soulful.” - Larry Getlen


"XS Magazine"

“Julie Davis is everything from scat singer to balladeer and can go from a whisper to scream faster than
a Ferrari can go 0 to 60… jazz duos are rare; one’s this good are jewels.”
- Bill Merrideth

Bio

Davis and Dow

Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter. If these names mean nothing to you, then you are missing out on a supremely important part of our history, culture, and heritage. Davis and Dow can help you introduce a new generation to this beautiful American art form called Jazz.

Julie (phenomenal vocalist) and Kelly (world class guitarist) present a show called “Great Jazz Divas.” It is a culturally educational and immensely entertaining musical show about these wonderful ladies of jazz; their lives and music. In addition to the fabulous live music, you will hear actual interviews with the writers, musicians, and the legendary ladies themselves. It’s like meeting and singing along with history.

Finalist for APCA “Best Performing Artist” 2004 and 2005, Davis and Dow are perfect for Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Jazz Appreciation Month or any time that you want great entertainment combined with a wonderful educational opportunity.
