Many artists have talent. A lot of artists have personality. Plenty of artists have potential. And then there are the very few who have it all. Meet Eddy Davis III. Born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida, Davis is a gifted musician who is ready to take his prodigious guitar playing and raw vocal talent to the masses. At just 16 years old, he has the industry not only interested, but excited for what is to come.
At five years old, Eddy began taking guitar lessons with mentor, Daniel Yancey, at the Yancey Music Center in Ormond Beach, Florida. It was Eddy’s father that introduced him to his first influences – The Beatles, Joe Walsh and The Eagles and The Beach Boys. As he got older and his guitar playing developed, bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC drew him in with their heavy blues turned aggressive, in your face rock and roll.
Although he could sing before he could talk, Eddy always kept his vocals and writing secondary to playing. However, once he decided to pursue a solo career, he began to showcase his “hidden” talents; writing music that was reflective of his past influences and current indie rock band favorites Cage The Elephant, JET, Arctic Monkeys and Tame Impala. His vocals are melodic and expressive like Jeff Buckley, yet possess the palpable tone of Chris Cornell. His wide vocal range can be compared to Matthew Bellamy (Muse), Robert Plant and Rod Stewart. And while his lyrics contain an innate intuition, they hold a substantial amount of maturity in the craft of songwriting.
