"JonnieProud rocks out in the BCC"

Davis has been playing guitar for 10 years and writing songs for the last five years. He recently became serious about his music career. He has played with the band on multiple occasions.

"Mike's performances are so entertaining and has this great sound to back it up," said Lauren Satos '06.

"He's going to be the next big thing on campus - just you wait and see," she added.

"[Mike] writes about things that are very personal, both happy and sad, and I think that it really helps the listener to identify with his reality." Wendy Scola '07 said. "He's very good at expressing himself and is a very intricate and complex musician who works very hard at what he does."

Bio

Growing up in a house filled with the musical stylings of Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, and Hall and Oates, Mike became obsessed with music. He started training in piano at age 6, moved on to guitar at age 10. He has played in a rock band, jazz quintet, jam-rock band, and now has stripped down to just an acoustic guitar.

His lyrics are conversational, truthful, and easy to connect with. The topics he takes from his own life and the lives of his close friends are universal; stated lyrically perhaps in a different way or for the first time. The connection is what Mike lives for.

"I think a live show is a wonderful experience because you get to connect with so many people on different levels. Not everybody experiences the same things, but people know emotions. It's great to see people enjoy my stuff as much as I do."

What's in the CD player right now?
-"Futures" Jimmy Eat World, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" Modest Mouse, and a live show of Matt Nathanson's.

Weapon of choice?
Taylor grand auditorium, Line-6 DL4, Dunlop .6mm picks, Shure SM58

Would you consider adding a band behind your music?
Definitely. I'm itching to get a band, it just needs to be the right people.
