Jake Davey (Distro only)
Hailing from the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Jake Davey is one of Australia’s brightest, emerging talents. Still in his early 20’s, this singer-songwriter is also an accomplished producer who runs his own studio. He has been honing his craft in music since the age of 6 and recently made the transition to full-time, professional recording artist.
Davey has a tireless work ethic, playing at up to 5 venues a week. His live shows are known for their colossal combination of stomping, looping, and heartfelt melodies. He has become one of the East Coast’s most recognizable performers. Despite a limited back catalogue of original works, his talents have already seen him play major festivals including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Wingham Akoostic Festival, Lakeside Festival, and Country at the Beach. He has also supported artists including Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite, Rick Price, Kasey Donovan, Taylor Henderson, Travis Collins, and The Viper Creek Band.
Drawing from influences like Old Dominion, Dan + Shay, and Keith Urban, Davey has shaped himself into a formidable musician who embraces a modern country sound. Jake took a huge step forward in 2019, with his debut original single entitled ‘On Your Mind’ added to Spotify’s ‘Country Chill’ Playlist on release. It has now accrued just under 120,000 streams on the platform. An excellent debut for an emerging artist.
The year 2020 saw Davey win the “Travis Collins Scholarship” to attend the CMAA Academy in Tamworth. This experience saw him grow in leaps and bounds. Since attending, he has signed his first-ever publishing deal with Kobalt Music and collaborated with Golden guitar winner and mentor Kevin Bennett on his second single called ‘Think of Me’. The single debuted at #2 on iTunes and has now attracted almost 10,000 organic streams across all platforms.
COVID-19 sadly put a stop to Davey’s travel plans, as he was booked to write and record in Nashville during the peak of the pandemic. Despite this unfortunate setback, Jake took the opportunity to write with artists far and wide. The prolific period of co-writing included artists from Canada, the United States, and Australia. It has left Davey with a top-shelf selection of tracks to release in 2021. He recently hit the studio to make a start on the first of those new singles, so watch this space!
