Born in Memphis, Tennessee, and heavily influenced by the music of Elvis Presley, Al Green, and Otis Redding, Beau Davidson writes and performs music reminiscent of the soulful inflections of “the Memphis sound.” Citing Elvis as a main source of inspiration, Beau has always been fascinated by the musical boundaries that Elvis transcended with simultaneous hits on the country, rhythm and blues, and rock ‘n’ roll charts, respectively. In Memphis, Beau began taking classical piano lessons at age four, but tried to squeeze in time to learn contemporary hits like “Great Balls of Fire.” Beau was soon winning regional talent competitions, competing as a finalist in The Mid-South Fair Youth Talent Contest- a contest graced by Elvis, Justin Timberlake and many other talents.
Beau then took his musical aspirations to new heights by attending Northwestern University’s prestigious School of Music in Chicago, where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in vocal performance/opera and political science.
In Chicago, Beau appeared as “Danny Zuko” in Grease and as the leading man in many other productions, including the Lonny Price-directed A Little Night Music, with George Hearn, Patti LuPone, ad Zoe Caldwell. Although operatically trained, Beau simply could not relinquish his Memphis roots, writing original music that captured his own Memphis experience.
Rather than moving to New York to pursue a career on Broadway, Beau moved to Los Angeles where he guest starred on Days of Our Lives and Gilmore Girls. In between projects, he wrote music that he later released as a digital EP titled “The Good Hurt.” Beau's debut single, “More Than I Can Give,” was the song that catapulted his career. Independent of any record label or production company, the corresponding music video landed on the websites of CMT, GAC, MTV, and Vh1, indicative of the fact that Beau’s music appealed to a diverse audience from contemporary country to pop/rock. The song was featured on the in-flight audio programs of many airlines, as well as the SUBWAY sandwich franchise’s own radio station.
Paul Kasofsky, Manager for the talented Beau Davidson, is also the Executive Producer of Beau's new album that will soon be released. Paul promises the new "Lion Sleeps Tonight" song, that was produced in Nashville, TN, will explode on the market! The world-Famous Jay Siegel's Tokens, who originally recorded the song in 1961, helped with this amazing performance. Paul can't wait for you all to hear the magic that we created together. You're in for a treat!!!
