Biography

Jason Davis, a Parker Guitars, Emerald Acoustic Guitars, and Randall Amplifiers Endorsement Artist, is heralded as one of the leading members of the nuevo-guitar movement of the 21st century. Best known in studio and on stage for his maverick guitar styling, melodic/compositional sensibility, and ear for the unique, he exudes the notion that compositional prowess along with command of technical facility can still exist today without reserve.

Davis is certainly a musician that is constantly in the media and in the ears of the world – even though he may not be immediately recognized. He has written and performed music that has appeared on “Saturday Night Live”, “The Tonight Show”, “Access Hollywood”, E!'s “True Hollywood Stories”, 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 MC Lyte, Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie/The Cure/NIN), American Idol’s Clay Aiken, Cee-Lo of the Grammy Award-winning group Gnarls Barkley, The Nixon’s Zac Malloy, and the Grammy Award-nominated Nappy Root. He was also one of the featured artists for the National Basketball Association on their "Rhythm N Rims" tour for three consecutive years. The nation-wide tour introduced Davis and his band to a wide audience on stages in Memphis, both downtown and uptown Chicago, Universal Studios/City Walk in Hollywood, Mile High Stadium in Denver, and other cities across the country.

On any given day, Jason 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, and rethinking ways to take over the world with six strings, a cranked amplifier, and a renegade spirit.
