Erika Davies is a throwback jazz/country/folk songbird who is making waves in the San Diego music scene. Think Patsy Cline meets Bjork.
Miss Davies took home the award for Best Jazz at the 2012 San Diego Music Awards & Her latest album. “Part The Sea” has been nominated Best Jazz Album At the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.
If you haven’t been lucky enough to catch her performing around San Diego, you’ve probably still heard her sing and not even know it! A popular national 2011 television commercial, “Where did we Park?” for the auto maker Subaru featured her singing her song, “I Love you, I Do”.
Re-creating the magic of timeless cinematic moments is the forté of Erika Davies.
Imagine the dim lighting of a charming nightclub where the beautiful female singer steps into the spotlight and a hush falls over the audience, entranced by her dramatic, glamorous style and evocative, sensual voice.
Her ballad expresses the pain of love lost; her upbeat songs, the joy of love obtained or unrequited.
A former staple at live shows by Gregory Page, San Diego’s premier Tin Pan Alley-influenced troubadour, Davies has been performing locally as a solo artist under the honorific, Miss Erika Davies, for more than 8 years.
She performs her original compositions and covers of early-20th-century classics while accompanied by guitarist Aaron Mahn Drummer Chris Carroll and, Upright bassist Jeremy Eikam & on some songs, herself on ukulele.
Her choice of instrument is just one of the many ways Miss Davies wears her old-timey influences on her sleeve.
