Nashville based recording artist, and former MTV's The Real World cast member, Davis Mallory has released his full debut EP 'LOUD'. Describing himself as "a Christian artist who makes pop music", Davis grew up in a musical family singing in his church choir.
His uncle John Mallory is a songwriter who has written songs recorded by Amy Grant, Sixpence None the Richer and Wynona Judd. His uncle Chaz Corzine is an artist manager who managed many artists including Amy Grant, Joy Williams of The Civil Wars and currently manages Christian recording artist Michael W. Smith. It was obvious Davis would pursue a career in music, yet the result is a storied and eclectic career.
Throughout high school Davis sang in an a cappella group which spawned Dove-award winning artist Kristian Stanfill, singer-songwriter Sean McConnell (signed to Rounder Records), and Ryan Horne (whose music is featured on ABC's Nashville & Sons of Anarchy). After graduating college pre-medicine from Stetson University, Davis auditioned and was casted on MTV's The Real World: Denver. He later starred on the subsequent MTV Challenges: The Inferno 3, The Duel 2 and Rivals. This lead Davis into a role as the music correspondent for MTV's NewNowNext.com where he interviewed artists, created playlists & reviewed live shows.
"I grew up in the Christian Music industry as a child and dreamt of pursuing a career as a Christian singer like Amy [Grant] & Michael [W. Smith]", explains Davis.
"I have written hundreds of songs - with Grammy winning songwriters and major label artists and finally this year I decided to release my debut album titled Loud. The song "Not That Far Away" is especially important to me because it is one of 2 faith-based tracks on my debut album ("Love Overcomes" being the second). I wrote "Not That Far Away" about heaven. The lyrics are "I can't tell you what we have in store, I don't know much but this I know for sure - we're gonna be dancing, we're gonna be screaming, we're gonna be holding on for more, we're gonna be living, you gotta believe me, you've gone one life so make it yours" it's a song I hope people will hear who struggle with many issues in their walk. The song says "it's gonna be alright, it's going to be okay our day in paradise is not that far away, so keep holding on, keep holding on." The song is produced Jon Santana a Nashville based pop producer and a fellow Christian."
