Bio




Hailed as one of the Top 5 Up & Coming Solo Artists by Music Connection Magazine, singer/songwriter Alex Davis ignites indie rock with introspective lyrics and an arresting sound. With guitar-driven versatility, his songwriting has been compared to Elliott Smith's poignancy, Kurt Cobain’s incisive emotionalism, and the bold wit of Violent Femmes’ frontman, Gordon Gano.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Alex has been writing music and performing since childhood. He's a new regular on the music scene in both LA and NYC, performing at noteworthy venues including Joe’s Pub, Knitting Factory Brooklyn and The Key Club. Alex has had songs placed in numerous TV shows, including MTV’s Pranked, and NatGeo/Sony Australia’s brand new travel show, Roam.

Alex has taken his talents to a new level with his interdisciplinary theater projects. The first project, ALEX DAVIS: MAN OF THE YEAR, incorporated original music performed with a full band, video and spoken narrative in a moving and humor-filled drama based on his life. Alex's performance of his show at the Knitting Factory Brooklyn in February, 2011, produced by Ruth and Stephen Hendel, was rated #1 in Time Out's "Critics' Picks" and #5 on the Advocate's "Hot Sheet". 

In January 2013, Ruth and Stephen Hendel produced a showcase of music and selected scenes from Alex's second theater project, THE ONLY LIVING GHOST(a new play with music previously known as SHAVING), which was very well received by a sold-out audience at New York’s historic Joe's Pub.

Alex is currently recording & performing with the Ary Sisters. Now a modern folk rock trio whose music style and harmonies gloriously reside somewhere between Mumford & Sons and Jenny Lewis, Alex Davis & the Ary Sisters are thrilled about the release of their first EP together, Will the Wind.
