Take a taste of Rock and Roll, mix it with a little Rhythm and Blues, top it off with a little Country and Western, stir it up and you've got Honky Tonk With Attitude. This is the music Orville Davis brings to the public.
This Florida born, Alabama and Georgia raised, Honky-Tonker has been bringing his style of music and his honest, forthright personality to the New York City hard-to-please masses for the past fifteen years and winning converts at every turn. Voted Male Singer/Songwriter of the Year by the New Jersey Country Music Association four years in a row (1996 - 1999), he is still the laidback Southern Gentleman with a gleam of the naughty boy in his eye. It doesn't matter if he's playing in a smoky Irish pub or for 30,000 people at an outdoor festival, Orville brings Conviction and Energy to the stage as his sidekicks.
Orville's career has taken him to many parts of the world. Whether it's playing bass guitar at Denver's Mile High Stadium in support of Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits, Mary Wells and Jerry Lee Lewis, opening for Brooks & Dunn, or playing his acoustic guitar at The Bitter End in New York City for a growing legion of fans, Davis' versatility has allowed him to perform under all types of circumstances. A seasoned veteran, he now brings his music and writing to the forefront.
Orville's latest CD BarnBurner (Fountainbleu Records) has been getting great reviews, as well as radio play on stations across the country and in Europe. BarnBurner was produced by Nashville veteran Jim Heffernan, who has worked with such artists as Brad Paisley, Joe Diffy and Doug Kershaw. 1999 Grammy Award Winning Engineer and Producer Dennis Ferrante brought his mastering touch to the final mixes.
Orville is the voice for RCA's Country Legends series, "Ultimate/Waylon", "Patriotic Country I & II" and "Ultimate Alabama" Greatest Hits releases. Orville can be heard singing the Bobby Troup song "Route 66" for K-Mart's Route 66 Jeans commercial, Roger Miller's "King Of The Road" for Suzuki's SUV advertising campaign, and on a recent commercial for Subway sandwiches. Orville is a member of the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA).
Orville has also been performing with his band "The Wild Bunch" up and down the East Coast and is hitting 2014 head on with his energy and Honky Tonk With Attitude.
