"Proof positive that guitar rock is alive and well. Jason is a great guitar player who knows how to serve the song and still hang ten. "
    
- Reeves Gabrels, (solo artist, The Cure, David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Ozzy Osbourne)

In a constantly changing and challenging music industry, Jason Davis has become one of the fortunate:  an independent artist successfully playing by his own rules.  Davis' maverick guitar styling, melodic/compositional sensibility, and "left-of-center" musical disposition has afforded him opportunities usually reserved for those offering safe, flavor-of-the-month compositions, thus leading to support from some of the most innovative and forward thinking music companies and manufacturers today: Reverend Guitars, Railhammer Pickups, Curt Mangan Strings, and Lava Cable. Davis has written and performed music that has appeared on “Saturday Night Live”, “The Tonight Show”, "Dancing With The Stars", “Access Hollywood”, E!'s “True Hollywood Stories” series, and countless others. He composed the theme to Court TV’s “Under Fire” series and has contributed music to the NFL, NBA, ESPN, and Fox Sports to use in all of their game and player coverage.

Davis has also performed and shared the stage with such diverse artists as Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie/The Cure/NIN/Ozzy Osborne), MC Lyte, American Idol’s Clay Aiken, Days Of The New, Cee-Lo Green, The Nixon’s Zac Malloy, Richard Lloyd (Television), and the Grammy Award-nominated Nappy Root.

On any given day, Davis can be found spending time with his lovely wife and children, performing with a menagerie of musical counterparts, constantly swapping out effects on his pedal board, serving as the "evil corruptor of youth" for his music students at a college in his locale, and rethinking ways to take over the world with six strings, a cranked amplifier, and a renegade spirit.

ADDITIONAL QUOTATIONS:

     "Jason's new record (Songs For The Phonophobic) kills!  It's chock full of excellent guitar playing that he uses to emphasize his songwriting skills, not just carry them.  We're proud to have him as an endorser."
    
- Ken Haas, Reverend Guitars

 

     "Davis is that rare thing: a blues-based player who neither plays it straight nor apes Stevie Ray. Instead, he comes across like a descendant of bluesy Texas axemen like John Nitzinger and Rocky Athas, armed with the sensibilities of high-tech shredders like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani. He's a fiery, aggressive gunslinger of great dexterity with a gorgeous, harmonic-rich tone...a talent to watch."
    
- Ken Shimamoto, Fort Worth Weekly

 

     "Jason Davis has that rare quality of musicianship with pop sensibility.  His tunes are well crafted - melodic and hooky without being too predictable - and he's not afraid to throw in a face-melting solo for good measure!  An intriguing musician for sure."
    
- Joe Naylor, founder of Railhammer Pickups and Reverend Guitars

 

     "Simply a great guitar player.  Well rounded and he writes and records tightly woven rock/pop hooks that are setting a new standard out there..."

     - Mark Stoddard, CEO Lava Cable
