She’s performing in Orange City, part of the Beyond Onstage series sponsored by Orange City Arts. The show is at Unity Christian Knight Center at 7:30pm.
Davis — of Portland, Oregon — became a New York transplant in 2009, when she enrolled at Manhattan School of Music. There, this multi-instrumentalist and vocalist met guitarist Gabe Schnider and drummer Conor Rayne, with whom she collaborated to develop her signature sound. The trio of Davis, Rayne and Michael Bono continues to pair contagious melodies with crafted musical arrangements, telling emotionally resonant stories.
Lauded by MTV as one of 2014’s “15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop,” Davis grew up with an instrument in her arms and a head full of inventive lyrics. Her lifelong training makes for smart, warm pop that’s musically nuanced.
Here she is with “All About the Bass” again… from May 2015!
Davis has performed at The Kennedy Center, The Bowery Ballroom, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall — as well as almost every noteworthy club in NYC. Recently she has shared the stage with Alison Krauss, Josh Groban, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles and Renee Fleming. Her accolades include a Robert Allen Award from the ASCAP Foundation, and her arts advocacy work includes a presentation at TEDx Portland and participation in the 2010 National Arts Policy Roundtable.
She’s creating a buzz around northwest Iowa, said Janine Calsbeek of Orange City Arts. A couple from Council Bluffs has already purchased tickets for Davis’ show, she said.
Advance tickets are $12 adult, $8 student at Dove Christian Bookstore, Orange City Arts and Northwestern College Theatre Department. At the door, tickets are $15 and $10.
