LA Based producer BPT (whose manager was Skrillex' former day-to-day manager for 8 years) has remixed LOUD and his version is out now! I asked BPT to create a version of "LOUD" that felt the way Mike Posner's "I Took a Pill in Ibiza (Seeb Remix)" turned out and he blew it out of the water! Check out!
I wrote "Loud" with fellow Nashville pop-artist Mitchell Rose and the song is produced by Nashville based producers Ricca Vita & J. Hanna (an artist signed to Armada Music's Brobot label).
The music video is Directed by Derrick Lipschitz and shot by Silas Phillips at The Nashville Film Institute, it features Nashville Predator ice skater Emily Outlaw, actress Kayla Poyner, American Idol's Hector Montenegro, actor Manny Sandow, and my cat Xena, a himalayan.
The creative direction for the Music Video was inspired by George Michael, and the fact that I am a Leo. I came out nationally on MTV's The Real World in 2006. I am a Nashville based recording artist (singer-songwriter & DJ) and gave a TED Talk in 2013 on my journey into music and out of reality TV.
"Loud" is the title track from my debut EP LOUD which will be fully released on 7/7/17 (Press Release attached).
Miami-based DJ/Producer Landis has remixed "Loud" and released his version on January 20, 2017 which has amassed over 190,000 spins on Spotify and was signed to Delecta Records (an imprint of Armada founded by Cedric Gervais known for his Lana Del Rey - "Summertime Sadness Remix.") https://DTR005.lnk.to/Loud

I connected with French duo Vorden (Henri Cornill & Matteo Marion) via Instagram back in 2015, we had become pen pals in a way and were keeping tabs on each other's careers and sending music back and forth. I really wanted to make a song happen with them and in early 2017 they sent me the beat on which I wrote "Because of Love." I had just gone through a break up and wrote this song all by myself while listening to the beat over and over again at the gym one day. The song lyrics literally came to me as I was showering after a run outside one day and I sang them and sent them via WhatsApp to Henri who liked the song. I then booked a day with Jon Santana - one of my favorite vocal engineers in Nashville to record final vocals. Upon arrival to Jon's house I realize I had never written second verse and I literally wrote second verse in the studio in a matter of minutes "she'll sing you to sleep with the sweetest sound, but don't believe a word she says she's lying, you'll wake up and think she's next to you, but she's out tonight and you'll be left there crying." This is one of my favorite songs and I'm super proud of how it all turned out! - xo Davis
The song has since featured on the popular EDM YouTube channel Kyra and has amassed over 30,000 plays in week 1. The song has a feel similar to deadmau5 & Justice.
