Jason Davis & the New Philosophers

"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, David Bowie, The Cure, NIN, Rolling Stones)

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. Davis has written and performed music that has appeared on “Saturday Night Live”, “The Tonight Show”, “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.

Jason proudly endorses and is supported by Reverend Guitars, Emerald Acoustic Guitars, Randall Amplifiers, Railhammer Pickups, Lava Cables, and Curt Mangan Strings. [+]
