Jason Davis began playing banjo around age 10. A Ford, Va. native, Jason was inspired when his uncle Thomas Davis began taking him to local bluegrass festivals. He got his first gig at age 14 with Michelle Nixon and Drive. Three years and two records later, he joined the Kenny and Amanda Smith Band, where he helped record the Grammy-nominated album, “Tell Someone.” Next came a stint with BlueRidge, then a three-year tour with Alan Bibey as a founding member of GrassTowne, where he cut two records. In 2008, Jason recorded a solo album, “Steppin Out,” which became a finalist for the Ibma instrumental album of the year. Jason lists Flatt & Scuggs, JD Crowe, Terry Baucom, Sammy Shelor and Tom Adams as his biggest influences. He is now touring with Junior Sisk and Rambers Choice.
