BIOGRAPHY

Thoby Davis is a musician living in Cardiff who enjoys exploring many different musical avenues, ranging from rock, acoustic, Americana, folk, classical and gypsy jazz violin through to electronica and progressive rock, specialising in a number of different musical instruments and gadgets along the way. His solo electronica project entitled 'I-Amethyst' is a diverse creative experience that caters for fans of the more ethereal ambient style to the most banging brutal hardcore and features such wondrous technical gadgets such as the Korg 'Kaossilator Pro', the Roland 'Handsonic 15' and with its incredible range of music making apps, the 'iPad Pro'. Thoby also enjoys guesting with a number of different musicians such as 'Francesca's Word Salad', 'Dead in the Water' and 'Tendons' as well as taking a central role in the progressive rock/metal band 'Akb'al'

However, Thoby's solo acoustic set generally sees him take on the more traditional form of acoustic guitar and voice, albeit with the addition of the 'RC-300' loop station and 'TC-Helicon' vocal fx unit. These amazing tools have allowed Thoby to create a unique sound which includes beat-box, guitar and vocal loops, producing multi-layered textures with a solid groove. His love of melody and song writing is always apparent in his live material and the lyrical content is very important, however Thoby also enjoys playing the pub circuit with his entertaining mix of covers from a range of different genres. Recently, Thoby has been adding more instruments to his live solo set, including the electric violin and Roland Handsonic, allowing Thoby to explore a greater range of sounds and textures, taking the live looping experience to the next level.
