VICTOR DAVIS


Artist / Writer


SOUL

The music of Victor Davies comprises a multi-coloured patchwork of Latin jazz, folk and heartfelt soul, underpinned with a complete understanding of great songwriting.

Born in the East End of London, the Thai-boxing Davies’ first release "Runaway Train" was part of a People Records Sampler that quickly garnered attention. The acoustic ballad immediately created widespread interest in this singer/songwriter and his soothing vocals. His debut album, Victor Davies, followed three years later and led Q magazine to declare that “Davies’ caressing tones could sell sunshine to an Australian”.

Davies has seen huge success in Japan, where the single "Fire", taken from his sophomore album Hoxton Popstars, held the number one spot for two weeks. The mastery and skill of his song-writing has attracted remixers of the highest calibre to his tracks; tracks from both his eponymous debut album and the more recent Hear The Sound album have been remixed by artists such as Louie Vega, Afro Gigolo and London Elektricity.

As he continues to collaborate with artists as wide-ranging as the Grammy-nominated Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto and the breakbeat-jazz producer Landslide, Davies is reaching a larger and larger audience.
