Davis Fetter heard Chuck Berry at the age of 12 and picked up a Gibson 335. Music colored his childhood in California’s Inland Empire. Davis is inspired by the iconic songwriting of such artists as The Smiths, Elvis, Roy Orbison, Lou Reed, and John Lennon, along with the euphoric melodies of The Libertines, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Buddy Holly. This fusion of musical interests gives Davis a unique sound all his own with a special reverence for writing perfect songs. His guitar tones are unique, technical, and spacious at the same time. Vocally, Davis’s range gives him the freedom to hit Little Richard notes with the effortless cool of a Morrissey or Julian Casablancas, and the childlike raucous of Peter Doherty. His sound has been compared to Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Glasvegas, John Lennon, and James Brown.
Formerly under the pseudonym of “Venus Infers”, Davis wrote and released over 35 original songs. He has performed throughout America, touring with artists like Peter Murphy, Blondie, The B-52s, The Airborne Toxic Event, Local Natives, Chris Cornell, and at the SXSW Festival in 2010.
Davis starred in an episode of MTV’s series “The Buried Life,” where he performed his original song, “Tomorrow,” live on television along with an interview. The episode had international viewership.
His original music has been featured on MTV, FX, Oxygen, Sky Network, and in various independent films. Four of his songs have had consistent airplay on LA’s KROQ FM. Many other tracks have been featured on college radio stations across the U.S. and overseas. Independently, Davis has sold over 12,000 downloads and over 5,000 records (as of July 2011). Davis has been additionally featured in many notable publications including Nylon Mag, Spin Magazine and The Los Angeles Times, as well as popular music blogs. Nylon Mag featured “Euphoria” on their Sept 2011 mixtape.
Davis performs acoustically, or with his full backing band. Each of his songs comes to life in a unique way through his live shows.
