Multi award winning jazz duo Davis and Dow are two strong halves of one BIG sound; a culmination of performing and touring together for 25 years. They tackle jazz and pop standards with a daring sense of abandon. While their style is deeply rooted in the classic jazz tradition, they enjoy weaving different genres of music into their repertoire. A Bossa Nova sung in French or a jazz standard with a Bach Interlude.
JULIE DAVIS is everything from scat-singer to balladeer. She grew up listening to the music of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald among others on her parent's vinyl collection. Singing jazz came naturally 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”. Julie is also a photographer and enjoys cooking gourmet vegan meals and watching Alfred Hitchcock movies. @juliedavisdow
