PATRICK DAVIS

 

Patrick Davis is a South Carolina raised singer, songwriter, storyteller & showman who for over the past decade has made a rather impressive musical mark in Nashville, TN.  Patrick, who grew up in the small town of Camden, South Carolina, learned the finer points of rock n' roll, folk, r&b and soul from his guitar playing father Rusty & his dad's nearly 3,000 strong vinyl record collection.  At the age of 16 Patrick joined his dad on stage for his first ever performance and since that initial “gig” music has been the only job Patrick has ever held. 

After graduating from The University of South Carolina Patrick moved to Nashville, TN where for over 15 years he has continued to build his songwriting, artist and touring career.  Patrick has released four well received full length albums, toured the US & Europe as both a headliner & support act for Darius Rucker, Jewel & others while also being employed as a staff writer for Warner Chappell Music Publishing.  Patrick has had over 50 songs recorded by other artist including songs for Jimmy Buffet, Lady Antebellum, Imelda May, Darius Rucker, Jewel, Robert Randolph, Guy Clark and many more. 

 Recently Patrick’s attention has turned more towards writing songs for his own performances and his live touring band, which he calls “Patrick Davis & Midnight Choir”.  PD's "Midnight Choir" is an 11-piece band featuring horns & background singers created by Patrick in early 2016 from both his own artistic vision & the soundscapes of his songwriting & performing heroes Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett & Bruce Springsteen.  Davis borrowed the name “Midnight Choir” from a line in one of his favorite Leonard Cohen songs “Bird On a Wire” & since his eleven-piece outfit starting playing dates "Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir” have witnessed growing congregations across the Southeast & beyond.

In October of 2017 PD has plans to release brand new studio music that will be accompanied by an October, November & December tour with stops in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia & more.
