Steven Davis

Steven Davis is the first person to admit that he has had an amazing musical life. He is a versatile singer and performer who was raised singing gospel in his Midwest home. He has spent many years performing in clubs in NYC, Atlantic City, L.A. and overseas with big bands and orchestras. He discovered a love for Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and big band sounds early in his life. It has been an integral part of his musical journey and has influenced his musical sensibilities since then. Davis’ new album, The Way You Look Tonight, is Davis’ first attempt to bring that passion to a recording project. It pays tribute to an amazing group of musicians from the era when songs had soul and arrangements were powerfully performed. The lyrics are also poetic. The eight-song collection gives Davis the chance to fulfill a long-held dream. It also offers young people a way to listen to classic songs in an updated, yet timeless manner. It’s a doorway to a musical age whose lyrics and inherent coolness still hold true. They just need a new, exciting voice. The singer performed with a big band of 17 musicians. They recorded the set at Capitol Studio A in Hollywood, where Nat “King Cole”, Frank, and other celebrities once held court. It was crucial to find the right team. He was able to work alongside Josh Charles, a producer and songwriter; Ed Cherney, a Grammy Award-winning mixer/recording engineer and Grammy Award winner, who has created his sound for everyone from Bonnie Raitt, The Rolling Stones and Elton John, and Etta Jam; and Andy Farber, conductor/arranger, who has orchestrated for Wynton Marsalis and Bob Dylan among others. King and Ray Charles. Charles and Davis, who were also the singer’s manager/producer in First Second Records, spent months compiling the perfect list of gems from that cherished period. They included three songs indelibly linked to Sinatra (“The Way You See Tonight,” “Come Fly With Me”, and “Luck Be A Lady”) from the musical “Guys.”
