Julie Davis

Julie Davis was born on an Air Force base within range of the Pentagon and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In high school, Davis learned jazz standards from cassette box sets including “Swing Time: The Best of the Big Bands” and New Time Life’s “Swing Era Audio Cassettes of the 1930s, 1940s and the Postwar Years” while playing flute in the marching band, singing in jazz and a capella choirs and acting in school-wide musicals and plays. After studying literature at Seattle Pacific University and earning a master of arts in religion and literature at Yale University, Davis briefly considered a career as a poet, an Episcopal priest, and a high school English teacher, but she chose instead to pick up the upright bass and begin writing songs.

Davis’ first musical projects, the solo project Bluebook and the chamber pop group, Bela Karoli, reflect her interest in literature and her early isolation from the music community in her adopted home of Denver, Colorado. In many of her early recordings, Davis’ voice and bass stand alone together amidst an electronic landscape. Her early connections among Denver musicians are evident on Bela Karoli’s 2007 release, “Furnished Rooms,” which features Carrie Beeder on violin and cello and Brigid McAuliffe on vocals and accordion.

Since entering the music community, Davis has contributed bass and vocals to the projects of many Denver musicians including Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov, Ian Cooke, A. Tom Collins, Miss America, Sweet Tooth Meat Tooth and Porlolo. As a member of Nathaniel Rateliff’s band, she has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe supporting bands such as Mumford & Sons, The Tallest Man on Earth, Bon Iver, Dawes, The Low Anthem, Delta Spirit, Ra Ra Riot, Laura Marling, The Fray and The Lumineers.

In 2011 Davis started the band Fairchildren, in collaboration with Joseph Pope III, James Han and Patrick Meese. Fairchildren played a collection of eerie interpretations of Hans Christian Andersen and Brothers Grimm fairy tales, which are showcased on their 2011 EP, “Crumbs for Flints.” Currently Davis is focusing on her newest project, The Seven Hats, including Joseph Pope III, which recently released its first EP, “Scientific American,” lush, apocalyptic interpretations of jazz standards from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
