THOBY DAVIS

MUSIC

BIOGRAPHY

Thoby Davis is a multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter based in Cardiff South Wales. Performing regularly in venues around the U.K. and abroad since the early 2000s, Thoby’s music spans styles and genres and encompasses his love of melody and his passion for sonic innovation. Thoby’s music has taken him to a number of different countries around the world including residencies in venues in the French Alpes, tours of Portugal and Spain and a multitude of gigs in bars, clubs, weddings, parties and festivals back home in the U.K. 

Thoby’s live performances often feature loop pedal with beatbox, guitar, voice and violin and can be tailored to suit all ages from toddlers to retirement homes with his repertoire of songs covering a wide range of styles and genres. As a songwriter, melody and lyrical content are important to him and early musical influences such as ‘The Beatles’ ‘Queen’ and ‘The Doors’ have played a big part in songwriting inspiration. However Thoby’s classical musical education has also played its part and he enjoys composing songs and music with multi-layered instrumentation with traditional instruments and electronics. 

Thoby has worked with producer Jolyon Dixon on his first single ‘Energy’ and a 3 song EP of the same name is on the way. He has also produced songs with fellow Akb’al band member Rob Miles including ballad ‘The Truth’ and is currently working with musical wizard Jamie Sefton recording songs for a forthcoming album. Jamie’s musical and production skills have allowed for a big step forward in Thoby’s studio recordings with new sounds, new ideas and a larger, more organic sound. 

With the lockdown Thoby has found more time to work on his live set and has been exploring some new ways of composing and arranging songs. The loop pedal always offers inspiration and Thoby has been exploring different instruments and sounds, often morphing from a traditional acoustic set into a more dancey electronica vibe. With vocal effects transforming voices into choirs, alien noises and bass synths so the scope of the music is ever evolving and offers almost limitless potential.

And with things opening up again, fingers crossed we’ll get to see Thoby performing new material in venues and festivals around the U.K. soon.
