Snake Davis Rocks!

Snake Davis is one of the most in-demand saxophone players in the world, widely known for his solos on tracks such as Lisa Stansfield’s “Change”, M-People’s “Search For A Hero” and “Moving On Up”, Klingande’s ‘Jubel’ and Take That’s “A Million Love Songs”. He has played and recorded with artists ranging from James Brown to Tina Turner to Paul McCartney, The Eurythmics to Amy Winehouse.

As a session player to the stars he plays arenas and stadiums, recent clients include Olly Murs and Shania Twain, later this year he’ll tour Japan playing arenas, but his greatest love is to play intimate venues as himself, his own music choice with his favourite musicians.

Playing the saxophone family as well as flutes, whistles and the ancient Japanese wind instrument, the Shakuhachi, and vocals, it is his total passion and commitment to every note that draws people in.

Snake approaches jazz with a soulful lyrical style. He studied jazz at Leeds college of music with further study with some of the greats in New York.

“A virtuoso saxophonist” DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Snake Davis has one of the most passionate sax styles and simple bluesy approaches a-la-Sanborn heard in these isles for a while” TIME OUT

“Snake is a joy to work alongside. His musical skills have no limit, in fact he is as free as a bird” DAVE STEWART (Eurythmics)
