Not your average piano bar man, Alex Davis holds a degree in music composition from the University of South Carolina, has worked live sound and as a recording engineer, and has been part of the indie/jazz outfit Passing Worth and the more prog-sounding Miles to Go. Davis has developed an individual style both in his own songwriting and covers of popular hits, both of which he plays at solo outings.
