- Solo artist
I just finished the album “”Pieces Of Parkhill”“ for Worthy Davis at soundbox cologne. We are urgently looking for partners/labels to promote the project. If you have an idea, please let us know. The release is planned in Oct./Nov. 2016. Here is some backround-information about Worthy Davis: “Pieces Of Parkhill” is unique blend of soul and jazz from singer, pianist and composer Worthy Davis. It blends sweet, soulful ballads, churning wah-wah funky guitar grooves, syncopated latin rhythms and bolster hooky bass lines reminiscent of 70's classics. A superbly crafted album produced by Marcus Greiner at “soundbox cologne”. Worthy's smokey voice is captured beautifully in a rich, floating sound. He has undoubtedly taken his stylistic cues from the likes of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder. He's inherited the DNA from their sound and spliced them through his own sensibility to create something that's familiar and accessible yet uniquely different from what's happening in contemporary black music at the moment. Jerry Hey-styled horns are brilliantly arranged by the french born trumpet player Eric Poirier that are crisp, punchy and are surrounded by string arrangements in complementary style. From the steamy, seductive chant of "Under The Skinfluence" to the socially conscious "Saltwater" Worthy uses his narrative talents to address themes and topics that are pure expression of desire, loss, vulnerability, racism and the perils of living in a post 911 world.
