Emily Davies

She/Her

Biography

Emily is a NYC-based bassist; her style and technique have been fueled by Nashville's wide range of genres as well as the deep roots of NYC's Harlem Renaissance jazz scene and various musical theater productions. In her two decades in Nashville, Emily performed with a diverse array of musicians from alt-rock to Americana, in jazz ensembles at the Nashville Jazz Workshop's Jazz Cave, and with a revolving door of singer-songwriters.

Recent performances include: A Sign of the Times, The Drowsy Chaperone, 42nd Street, Footloose, Jersey Boys, Godspell, The Marvelous Wonderettes, Spring Awakening and cabaret, singer-songwriter, and band performances at 54 Below, The Bitter End, Green Room 42, Bowery Electric, and Brooklyn Music Kitchen. Emily has been active in studio sessions with Madam Who? — a throwback to her days in Nashville as bassist for Madam Who?'s alt-rock group Audra and the Antidote.

​Emily graduated with a B.M. in Bass Guitar/Commercial Music from Belmont University in Nashville and holds an M.M. in Jazz Performance—Bass from New York University's Steinhart School of Music. While at NYU, Emily was a member of the NYU Broadway Orchestra. She was also an adjunct electric bass instructor for undergraduate non-majors.

Emily is a current member of the AFM and an Epifani and Fodera artist.
