Tim Davies

Ever since he was given a cassette of Australia’s Daly Wilson Big Band at age 12, Tim Davies had the dream to write for and play drums in his own big band. That dream was realized in 1998 when he formed his first big band in Melbourne, Australia. Although it only had a short run before Davies moved to the States, the band made quite an impact. Since 2000 Davies has led a big band in Los Angeles featuring top session and touring players. The band's first album, Epic, was released in 2003 and a new album, Dialmentia (Origin Records) is available in May 2009. Grounded in traditional swing, Davies' music adds elements of classical, rock, metal and hip hop, creating a blend that is truly unique. This is not your grandfather's big band music!

Davies music is now played all over the world. He has been a guest conductor and performer with big bands in Australia, America and Europe and is often commissioned.

When not working on big band music, Davies can be found working as an arranger, orchestrator and conductor in Hollywood.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
