Legacy Park Concert Series Spotlight

ALACHUA - One of the performers headlining the free Legacy Park Concert Series event on May 1, is rising-star, Jamie Davis.

From literally sleeping in a guitar case back stage to headlining shows, Davis, singer, songwriter and guitar player, grew up with music.

It was destined to be for this north central Florida boy with fond memories of sleeping back stage in his dad’s guitar case.

Coming from a large network of musicians - surrounded by music from both sides of his mom and dad's family - Jamie came to learn at an early age that he too was blessed with the gift of music.

By age 14, Davis was holding his own in the circle of guitar pickers. At the young age of 15, he hit the ground running, playing any and every H***y Tonk around Branford, Florida.

"I new I had to cut my teeth, build my chops and create a local fan base," Davis explained. "At the same time, and lucky for me, my dad knew all the club owners, so I didn’t have to lie about my age, at least not with all of them."

Those are days Davis will never forget, days spent realizing that he truly did have a gift, but a gift that needed nurturing.

His first real opportunity came when he was invited to play bass with the power house vocal group “BuckWild” from south Florida.

It was there that he gained his experience with touring, playing different venues each night, learning how to be a great supporting act and honoring the moments when as the headliner.

Shortly after signing a record deal, the band relocated to Nashville, playing supporting shows with such greats as Charlie Daniels, Josh Turner, Andy Griggs and others.

One of his most memorable was performing for former President George W. Bush. That was a great time in Jamie’s life but also time in which he was missing his family.

So in 2005 Jamie returned home to north central Florida for a much-needed reunion.

During that time off, Davis fell into Bluegrass, and discovered an all-new love that changed his life.

He joined in with the, "Lake City Slickers," where he quickly realized he had yet another blessed talent as a lead vocalist.

He worked shows and shared the same ticket with some of Bluegrass’ favorites like, Mountain Heart, Lonesome River Band and many more.

"Although it was a blast playing with such a fun band, I was very humbled," Davis said. "At the same time, by the skill level of the musicians I was surrounded by. I’m here to tell you, there are some hot pickers in Bluegrass, some of the best in the world."

In 2007 Davis returned to country music with a whole new perspective and sound, and with a new band "RoadHouse Live."

Having the country, bluegrass, rock and blues influence, Davis felt he was a more rounded and polished performer, thus giving him the confidence to pursue a carrier as a solo artist.

Today, with the help of some very dedicated and loyal supporters, a great band of superb musicians and a very loving and supportive family, Davis' first album, “High Weeds & Rust,” is on the racks and doing well.

He’s now touring and promoting like a runaway tornado, selling out venues and building a fan base that’s growing every day.

"I love what I do," Davis said. "I gain a friend with every fan. I’m at home on a stage, and loving every minute of it."
