Davis and Dow
Multi award winning jazz duo Davis and Dow have chemistry. Soul mates that are two strong halves of one BIG sound. Davis and Dow tackle jazz and pop standards with a daring sense of abandon. Their style is deeply rooted in the classic jazz tradition but with a playfulness that keeps the music fresh and fun. Their arrangements are unique and inventive, always seeking a new approach to everything they do.
Recognized as one of the finest and most versatile jazz singers of her generation, Julie Davis is everything from scat-singer to balladeer. She grew up listening to the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald and others on her parents extensive vinyl collection. Singing jazz came natural to Julie from a young age. “A confident singer with a compelling stage presence who possesses a wry kittenish voice with claws”. “She is a stylist that seeks an original twist on everything she performs; a risk-taker who’s scatting suggests she learned in her bassinet”. Now she feels it is her turn to expose newer generations to a young American art form called jazz.
“Soul Times Two”… “Julie Davis’ sensual purr is used to great effect as she goes
from coquettish to introspective, accompanied by Kelly Dow’s multi-textured
playing. Standards are revived, but Davis and Dow’s love for the music and
sterling chops keep them from sounding routine. Davis is also an engaging
performer, and we guarantee you won’t take your eyes off the charismatic
singer...The real thing, (they are) deeply rooted in the classic jazz tradition but
with a playfulness that keeps the music fresh and fun.”

turn, harkens back to the day when the Raneys and Farlows ruled the plectic
