Reesie Davis grew up in the Northeast US and first began singing the blues at the tender age of 8, when a classmate's father introduced her to the music of Albert King. His albums sustained her throughout a troubled childhood and would later serve as a welcome diversion during time spent in juvenile detention facilities. By the time she was 15, she'd made a conscious decision to pursue a career of singing the blues. Kicked out of her mother's home at 18, she was forced to leave everything behind that couldn't be carried out on her back. Undaunted by her sudden homelessness and fueled by an intense desire to succeed in spite of everyone who'd said she couldn't, she spent the following year preparing to relocate to the blues Mecca of the Southwest; Austin, Texas.

By 19, she'd crossed the country and had settled into her newly adopted city. Almost immediately, she began sitting in with a number of local blues heroes. By 22, she'd recorded with some of the best known names in the industry and had performed at some of the best clubs. Unfortunately, at 25, the local blues scene began drying up at an alarming rate. Many bands were breaking up and others were leaving Austin in search of more lucrative pastures. Reesie decided to move on as well - to a location that would prove itself conducive to maintaining a career as a professional blues singer. Well-paying gigs in Austin were becoming scarce and she didn't want her dream to be sidetracked by yet another horrible day job.

Knowing the popularity of the blues in Europe, Reesie headed for Prague in 2003 and started performing with the Lubos Andrst Blues Band shortly after arriving. A seasoned guitarist well-versed in the blues, Andrst has performed with everyone from the late great Katie Webster to B.B. King. Reesie Davis and the Lubos Andrst Blues Band tour across the European continent on a regular basis and will be releasing their first studio length CD in the Fall of 2005.

Reesie expects to return home (permanently) to the East Coast eventually, when the right opportunity presents itself. In the meantime, she is available for worldwide bookings with the Lubos Andrst Blues Band. She is also available for solo bookings, where local talent is provided as a backup band, provided sufficient rehearsal time is pre-arranged.
