About BK Davis

Davis is currently on a nationwide tour, visiting many Steinway piano dealer locations. Born in Davenport, Iowa, home of 20th century jazz great Bix Beiderbecke, Davis was raised in a musical household. He has been composing and performing music for 40 years. Davis and his band are currently headliners at the Fox Restaurant in Tampa, FL, which is rated by Downbeat magazine as one of the 214 best jazz cafes in the U.S.

Davis’ latest project is to pursue the one accolade he hasn’t received: a Grammy nomination. He is in the studio composing a new album and negotiating with a major record label for representation so the new album may be eligible for honors by the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the body that bestows Grammy awards.
