KARL W DAVIS
Born in Folkston (Georgia,USA), Karl W. Davis grew up during a time of soul music and social change in the south. As a result of his exposure to this golden era of gospel crossover radio hits, Karl developed a singing style part fire and brimstone preacher, part velvet voiced lover and part down home working class blues man. Each phrase is delivered with such intensity and emotion there is no doubt it is the absolute truth. As a songwriter and performer, Karl W. Davis is a soul man of deep sensitivity, incapable of pretense, who is a genuine example of the undeniable power that only a true messenger of love can wield responsibly. When Karl envelops his audience with the warm embrace of his voice and his authentic charismatic presence, hope is generated, shining smiles prevail. And if even one heart is touched in a real way, then his goal as a bringer of joy is a complete success !
Yann Cuyeu (Guitar), Igor Pichon (Bass), Nico Mary (Keys), Fabrice Bessouat (Drums)
A band of brothers brought together by common goals :
- Inspire Karl to new heights, beyond what he may have previously imagined
- Create original compositions while respectfully showing their love for the greatest soul, blues and funk artists.
This groove machine is capable of the highest finesse in recording sessions coupled with a polished, shining showmanship on stage. Collectively these talented young men represent the cream of the crop of French musicians. They hold themselves to the highest of professional and creative standards. Each track on our self-produced album "It's High Time"reflects mature skills and an emotional depth rarely found in todays music. The Sweetpeas play it proud and strong.
So, go ahead, open up your ears, get it in your head, let it in your heart, you deserve the best !
