Biography

Sinai Rose Davy
Artist Bio

Sinai Rose Davy, was born June 1,1997, in NYC, NY. Born into a musical family, Sinai's mother, Shannon Cook, was born and raised in Detroit (Motown), Michigan, and later moved to New York to pursue a career as a freelance music journalist/ talent manager. Her father Kevin Davy, p.k.a "Yvad", was born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in the hills of Jamaica's countryside in a town called Clarendon. At the age of 17, Yvad, was discovered by Steven Marley, while strumming his guitar outside of Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studios located in Kingston 10. Cedella Marley, heard Yvad's voice and immediately signed Yvad to Tuff Gong Records and launched his career that same year. Yvad's first single "We Need Love", produced by Clive Hunt, became an international smash and was awarded Jamaica's best produced single. Yvad's success prompted the opening of Tuff Gong International's New York offices, where ironically, Sinai's parents met when her mother was asked to interview her father for BET's publication YSB Magazine.

As an only child, Sinai spent the majority of her childhood in Park Slope, Brooklyn. In the Davy's home, music played night and day. Sinai's parents lived in an apartment one floor above her Jamaican grandparents Carol & Brenton Berry. Home life for Sinai meant she literally had the best of both worlds: " Tropical” Jamaica & "The Big Apple", New York, all under one roof. The cultural diversity of Sinai's two families surfaced in every conversation, as patois mixed with American slang; and influenced every meal as they passed cornbread & collard greens alongside ackee & salt fish, fried dumpling, and callalloo.

Music served as the one constant thread, binding Sinai's two distant families, whose differences span as wide as the deep blue sea that separated them.
Music united Sinai's family and blessed her with a rare natural musical development. On an average day in Sinai's home, you could hear the sounds of her father strumming tunes by Bob Marley, Jacob "Killer" Miller, or Jimmy Cliff. Her grandmother, "Sister Carol Night Nurse”, would be spinning John Holt or Dennis Brown; and her Grandpa would be mixing a dub plate of Studio One Rocksteady & Ska. On the more traditional American side of music, Sinai's Mom listened to Billy Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder or ‘The Fugees’, while cleaning the house. Sinai naturally absorbed all of these influences and crafted her own melodic sound.

Sinai began singing at age 1. "She was singing and humming on key before she could speak properly“, her mother tells. As a toddler Sinai would sit at her father’s feet, singing and tapping a drum while her dad wrote songs on his guitar. By age two, Sinai had recorded her first cover song in the family's Sinai Productions Recording Studio. Sinai, quickly developed a pretty strong reputation for interrupting everyone’s recording sessions, as Dad's brethrens: Damien "Junior Gong" Marley, Julian Marley, Israel Vibrations, Val Douglas, and Ras Shiloh jammed through the night . Her Mom recalls, "Sinai loved to hang out in the small home studio while Yvad and different brethren recorded.

Sinai was never shy and would began singing as soon as the music played. Her dad would have to stand her in front of the mic and say, " Ok Sinai, now you can sing your part", and little Sinai would sing her heart out for two minutes, and then of course Yvad would say, "Ok Sinai now its Daddy's turn" which meant that he could record without interruption. Even as a toddler, Sinai was always very comfortable in her element.

When Sinai was 4 years old her parents decided that Sinai needed to experience life in Jamaica. The family packed up and moved to Clarendon, Jamaica. Sinai, was young enough at that time to experience the beauty of Jamaica and the richness of her roots, and not toil over the hardships of living in a lesser developed country. The family moved in a remote area in Clarendon hills where there was little indoor plumbing, and house phones were a luxury. For Sinai, this was a noticeably different lifestyle, but one that also afforded her newfound freedom. Sinai remembers bathing in the rivers and hot mineral springs, picking and eating mangos, apples, and oranges straight from the trees, and daily family trips to the white sand beaches.

Sinai vividly recalls visiting the Bob Marley Museum, hanging out in the Tuff Gong recording studio, and having meals with the Marley family: Damien, Julian, Stephanie and others. It wasn't long before the Big Apple was calling Sinai home again, as her Dad's music projects required that he return to the states to record and tour again, and so the family returned to New York.
Sinai’s family lived in Detroit for a short stint as her Dad put together a reggae band to tour with, throughout the midwest and Canada. Sinai enjoyed time with her mother’s family in Detroit and began to show interest in performing, as she vol
