IAA SPOTLIGHT: GET TO KNOW – Q DOT DAVIS – ALABAMA’S HOTTEST STAR
Jul 2012 24

IAA:  What city and state you are from?

Q DOT DAVIS:  I am from Birmingham, AL but throughout college I lived in Nashville, TN, Minot, North Dakota, and even spent time in Canada.

IAA:  What is your musical background?

Q DOT DAVIS:  I have a firm foundation in music. I grew up singing in my family’s church choir and my granddad, Andrew Davis, was an amazing gospel singer. He and my Uncle had a gospel group in his younger days. I guess I inherited the music gene in my family. I played snare drum in middle school. I also sang in the choir throughout middle and high school and was a part of a bell choir. Music has always been a part of my life and I am passionate about it.

IAA:  What inspired you to pursue music?

Q DOT DAVIS:  I had been working on promotional teams for clubs since age 16. I continued that through college until I ended up in the small town of  Minot, ND, where there are not many clubs to continue that at. While I was there in football camp, one of my favorite aunts died, Fannie Posey, and I was not able to make it back to Alabama for her funeral. I was depressed about being so far from family and losing a close family member and began to  write and record to express my emotions. I recorded a song called “Why Must We Live This Life So Hard” on a web cam computer mic and with a free version of Audacity recording software. The quality was not the best but it painted a picture of my life, how I felt about it and how I felt about the death of both my aunt and my grandfather that had died when I was 11. I developed a sound and a love for composing and recording and the rest is history in the making…stay tuned!

IAA:  What are your songs about?

Q DOT DAVIS:  Everything. My songs are inspired by any and everything around me. A certain beat could inspire a certain subject to surface on my brain or I could just choose a subject and make the song tell a story that I have experienced. I like to tell stories and paint perfect pictures of events I was present for and make people feel as if they were right there with me.

IAA:  Do you write your own music?

Q DOT DAVIS:  Yes, I write all of my material myself. I take mental notes of phrases I hear that are catchy, information I find to be interesting, and my personal thoughts and perfectly mix all those to create the lyrical content that has separated me from your average “rapper” and that my fans love.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

Q DOT DAVIS:  I have a lot because I listen to all genres of music. I feel it helps me be more well-rounded as an entertainer. My influences include Chris Brown, Maroon 5, Jason Aldean, Kanye West, Stuey Rock, Big Sean,Trill Fam,Wiz Khalifa, Future, and Drake.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

Q DOT DAVIS:  Original. Attention grabbing. Timeless. I can’t say that my music is any particular genre, so that makes it original. I like to make people “feel the music,” that makes it attention grabbing, and I like to keep an old sound of good music and tweak it to make it fit what’s in style, so it’s timeless.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

Q DOT DAVIS:  My whole personality and drive surpasses even my hardest working friends in the industry. I have  individual goals and my techniques to achieve them are always original. I also have a sound that captures many genres all at once.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

Q DOT DAVIS:  I am always working on many projects at a time. I am re-releasing my February 2012  mix-tape, “Amongst The Stars,” with bonus tracks. I am working on an untitled collaboration mix-tape with one of my business partners, Rayne Chemyst. I am also finishing up tracks for my upcoming solo mix-tape ,“#YOLO the Mixtape”.  There’s always a lot going on but I love it!

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see your self in 10 years?

Q DOT DAVIS:  My goals are to transition into a world-wide entertainer, not just a recording artist and promoter. I want to do movies, TV, commercials, and print modeling on top of what I already do. In 10 years I want to have a very established career. I hope to start a program to help people that want to make it in the industry, a program that leads them in the right direction to achieve the dreams they can only imagine.
