Hailed as the Jamaican Jacob Collier, Joe Davis is music.

Hailed as the Jamaican Jacob Collier, Joe Davis is music.

“I love this!! This is JAZZ AND BLUES!” a new fan shouted in the chat when Joe, dressed in T-shirt.......


Seventeen-year-old Jamaican multi-instrumentalist, Joseph Davis, has been compared to American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder. His ability to effortlessly deliver impressive vocal arrangements, accompanied by outstanding instrumentation, has set the youngster apart from many of his peers. In fact, his talent afforded him the chance of performing the Star-Spangled Banner. One may remember him for the spectacular arrangement at

a virtual ceremony in US Vice President Kamala Harris’ honour last month. But while he is flattered by the Stevie Wonder comments and comparisons, Davis told The Sunday Gleaner that his ultimate goal in music is to build a brand for himself.
