Napua Davoy

Having used theatre and opera to grow her creative wings, vocalist, pianist, composer & lyricist Napua Davoy dissolves boundaries and unites essences in this groundbreaking recording. Her warmth and emotional gravity burn soothingly while dismantling us with her white hot mezzo contralto. Her pianistic and arranging skills only heighten the realization of music whether hers or not. But it is her ability to write moving and memorable melodies which carve heroically through complex harmonies into songs that bristle with depth and freshness that may be her most precious gift.

In addition to brand new spins on well known classics by Gershwin, Joni Mitchell, Johnny Mercer, and Gian Carlo Menotti, Napua Davoy’s new album “All I Want” contains songs from her two musicals Stella Rising and Miami. Since her amazing vocals premiered on her 1990 Columbia album she has expanded her abilities to include writing and composing.
