Grant Davis sings on the McFadden Stage on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Grant is appearing in conjunction with the Jukebox International Film Festival. His singing and acting are part of one of the films in the festival, Something Like Summer.
Grant is a native of Carson City. Even in the high altitude and crisp air of the Northern Sierra Nevada mountains an artist can dream of the bright lights of Broadway or the star-paved streets of Hollywood. Seemingly light years away from the star-making machinery, recording artist, actor and entertainer, Grant Davis, has attempted other paths to stardom along the way. After playing many a sport, Grant found nothing resonated deeply within his body except one summer night when he auditioned for a play at a local theatre.
Grant Davis combines classic pop and adult contemporary genres with a jazzy edge surely to ignite lovers of Josh Groban, Michael Buble or Chris Botti. He tackles impressive old school standards by George Gershwin with ease, and at the same time Grant is comfortable singing the latest Coldplay smash, or even a Broadway hit. Grant also appeared in the Jazz & Beyond Festival in 2012.
