Patrick Davis is a singer, songwriter, artist & storyteller originally from Camden, South Carolina who has spent the last fourteen years making his musical mark in Nashville, TN. Patrick learned the finer points of music & performance growing up in a household that not only included a talented guitar playing father, but also an extensive record collection always readily available for his absorption. At the age of 16 Patrick joined his father Rusty on stage for his first ever performance and since that initial “gig” music has been the only job Patrick has ever held.
After graduating from The University of South Carolina in 2000 Patrick moved to Nashville, TN where for almost 15 years he has continued to build his songwriting, artist and touring career. Patrick has released four well received full length albums, toured the US & Europe as both a headliner & support act for Darius Rucker, Jewel & others while also being employed as a staff writer for Warner Chappell Music Publishing & having over 50 songs recorded by artist like Jimmy Buffet, Lady Antebellum, Imelda May, Darius Rucker, Jewel, Robert Randolph, Guy Clark and many more.
Patrick’s “Patrick Davis & Midnight Choir” is an 11-piece band featuring horns & background singers created by PD in early 2016 from both his own artistic vision & the soundscapes of his songwriting & performing heroes Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett & Bruce Springsteen. Davis borrowed the name “Midnight Choir” from a line in one of his favorite Leonard Cohen songs “Bird On a Wire” & since his eleven-piece outfit starting playing dates Davis & “His Midnight Choir” have witnessed growing congregations across the Southeast.

Don’t let the age fool you. In her few short years, Big Machine Recording artist Lauren Jenkins’ life has spun like a gritty country vinyl, chock-full of smoke-filled bars, fake IDs and miles on the road. That life could get lonely, but for this Texas born, Carolina raised singer/songwriter; Music has always been her constant road companion. By 15, she was hitting the clubs up and down the East Coast, playing each night for just one new fan. By 17, she was making regular trips to New York City, before making the move official. While there studying acting, music was never an afterthought, but the goal. Burning the late night oil, Jenkins would showcase her new music at the legendary New York clubs, The Bitter End, The Living Room and anywhere that gave her a mic to sing. During this time, some of her songs made there way into the hands of Scott Borchetta and his Big Machine Label Group (Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw). With a call, a flight and dinner, Big Machine knew they wanted to be to be a rider on her musical voyage and offered her a record deal on Big Machine.
Released in late 2016, “Jenkins' new EP” the Nashville Sessions “is a testament to the ability to further break down those genre barriers in cool, exciting new ways.” “Penning four of the six tracks, Lauren showcases unfiltered lyrics through alluring vocals, creating a fusion of soulful vibrancy. The glamorous songstress blends her traditional Country roots with Americana influences to seamlessly transition between cheerful melodies one moment and expressions of raw emotion the next.”
With a 2017 Big Machine debut album to be released, Jenkins will be found where she is comfortable, on the road and on a stage.
