Jessie Davis » Soulful singer-songwriter and keyboardist Jessie Davis is from New York City. She is also from Atlanta. And also from Salt Lake City. Davis grew up in Sugar House and attended Highland High School before graduating from Judge Memorial, with much of her time spent learning classical piano. But in between her freshman and sophomore years of college, she attended the Berklee College of Music and fell in love with her true calling. "It was the freedom of the music" that attracted her to jazz, said Davis in an interview. "I always loved classical piano, but it’s hard to hit every note," she added with a laugh. She linked up with internationally known drummer Vinx and followed him to Atlanta, where she lived between 2007 and 2011, eventually receiving her degree in jazz piano performance. Along the way, she found herself singing along to her own music, because every singer she auditioned never matched the music Davis heard in her head. Davis moved to New York City right after Thanksgiving. In September 2011, the blue-eyed soul singer released her second album, "Him & Gemini," inspired by Amy Winehouse, Esperanza Spalding, Adele and D’Angelo. Tonight, Davis is returning to Bar Deluxe for a homecoming show.
