I've always been a firm believer that an artist's best business card is their live show. How it sounds, connects, and reaches people...matters.”

— Nathan C. Davis


Nathan C. Davis

A singer-songwriter whose original music features authentic, hopeful honesty, and a signature baritone voice...and his shows convey joy and fun, clear superb musicianship, and his covers span many decades, effectively appealing to any mood.

Born and raised in Southern California, and living much of his life in San Diego, all while seeing much of the country in between as an Army brat moving from coast to coast, Nathan is a literal blend of California and Carolina in style and sound. Being exposed to classic songwriters and their music as a kid, fronting bands of a variety of genres, and writing for and playing on records for others, Nathan recently turned to focusing his songwriting voice exclusively for his own music.  

Blending his diverse experiences and travels within his writing, creates a musical perspective that can be described as a “hopeful honesty.”  That perspective is now on greater display, as he recently completed recording a studio record (EP). The release was delayed for COVID, but ultimately was released at the end of 2020.  He is already working on tracking his next release.

Since moving to Charlotte in 2007, he has settled into the local Charlotte scene, finding a comfort zone in playing acoustically and performing both solo to full band shows and booking for venues all around the city, as well as playing shows to support local and touring acts.  As an artist in the Charlotte music scene for years, he has played shows for Sofar, Midwood Entertainment, Tosco Music Parties, Charlotte Is Creative, and Queen City Nerve.  

Nathan takes pride in the opportunity to share his passion for music and storytelling while bringing it to audiences with an attention to detail and execution in instrumentation and sound. With a distinctive baritone voice, diverse and enjoyable setlists, venues around Charlotte routinely welcome and acknowledge the fresh approach and premier professionalism to their venue that comes with each performance.

Typically booking 1-3 months out, reach out to him TODAY to schedule a show.  On occasion, he may be available on short notice if you have an immediate need.  Whatever your event, venue, or occasion, he'll be sure that you receive great live music, with distinction.
