Rhett Davis has logged more than 45 years at the "University of Musical Life" and still has not graduated! The learning process is ongoing. As a lounge and nightclub performer he has taken classes from Tel Aviv to New York, from Vancouver to Nashville. His music is drawn directly from his experiences as a world traveled songwriter and performer.
Rhett was born in England, immigrated to Canada and grew up in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. He was lead singer and front man for a local group “THE WINMEN”. They recorded a regional hit “A Nickel Piece of Candy” and played major venues in British Columbia and Washington State. After long time school buddies went their separate ways, Rhett joined a well-established Toronto nightclub act, “THE HILITES” that performed in major venues, conventions, lounges and television in US, Europe, The Mid- East and Canada.
When the HILITES disbanded, Rhett returned to Nashville where he had recorded “(A Nickel Piece of Candy”) and renewed a relationship with his long time friend and mentor, the late Floyd Cramer. Together they formed Ivory Productions and he wrote songs for country music artists, Eddy Arnold (Making Memories), Brian Collins (I Wish You’d Stayed) and David Rogers (Somewhere There’s A World Called You). It was here that he wrote and produced his Top Twenty hit, “I Am The Eagle”.
Some of Rhett’s performance credits are:
