Evelyn Davis

2016. Detroit native and general wanderer Evelyn Davis is an inside/prepared/new music pianist, improvisor, pipe organist, composer, vocalist, synthesist, teacher, songstress, and maker of/participator in oddly shaped musics with an occasional side of performance art. Recent projects include the plate-juggly keyboard/drum duo CHIROMANCER, trio play with Fred Frith and Phillip Greenlief as a pipe organist, and forthcoming rerelease of solo material The Wit of the Stair, songs for acoustic piano and voice. Life tics along, with the constant hum of teaching, song-writing and recording, forever exploring classical music, and improvising with friends. Evelyn holds an AA in Jazz Performance from the School for Music Vocations at Southwestern Community College, a Bachelor’s in Composition from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and a Master’s in Performance and Improvisation from Mills College.
