The astounding early success that Daven experienced has an equally astounding discovery story. Daven was only 6 months old when a talent agent approached his mom and requested to sign him on the spot. His Mom said she would bring him in when he was old enough decide for himself whether or not this was something he wanted to do. After a call from the same talent agent that approached him at 6 months, at 2 years old, he got signed and booked his first national commercial the next day. From there on he appeared in upwards of 25 national commercials with major companies such as Hasbro, Nike, and Denny’s, and has worked with celebrities such as Peyton Manning and Terrance Newman on national commercial campaigns. Aside from his prodigal acting abilities Daven’s good looks and athletic build landed him major modeling gigs, including magazine covers, catalogs, posters and billboards. In the process of amassing those commercial/modeling credits, at the tender age of 4 he began his 6-year run on Barney & Friends as the youngest cast member ever, starring along fellow alumni Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. With his character, “Jackson” being one of the most loved among the cast, he starred in the Barney & Friends movie “Lets Go to The Farm” that was, and is, one of the most successful Barney films in the shows history. After his time on Barney he played the voice of Marcus in an animated children’s show called Boz. At 11 he guest-starred as “Trey” in the Nickelodeon record-breaking movie Merry Christmas Drake & Josh. The streak of quality projects continued when he landed a re-occurring role as “Fleck” on iQuit iCarly, one of iCarly’s highest rated TV movies worldwide. With his latest project being a coming of age Christmas movie starring Eric Roberts and Vivica A. Fox, Daven is on the fast track, and that’s not just in acting. Daven has always been musical. Having professionally sung and danced in Barney, along with an impromptu performance at Disney Epicot, it has always been a mission of his to cultivate that passion into a facet of his career. While filming on Drake & Josh he met a producer on set that wanted to create a demo track with him, and through that process he discovered his love for creating music. At 15 he released his single titled “It’s Daven”, composed and written by him self, mixed and mastered by a diamond producer, and released independently on iTunes, as an introduction to his new venture into the music scene. Currently, as a graduated 18-year old with honors that’s been accepted to Pepperdine University, he has been spending time in the studio writing and working on his debut EP with the producers of various artists such as Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Kirko Bangz (to name a few). With his newest single “Contact” released this summer exclusively on iTunes , Daven Wilson is a face you’ll see and a name you’ll know for years to come. [+]
