Snake Davis is one of the most in-demand rock soul and jazz sax players in the world, widely known for his solos on tracks such as Lisa Stansfields “Change”, M-Peoples “Search For A Hero” and “Moving On Up” and Take Thats “A Million Love Songs”. He has played and recorded with artists ranging from James Brown to Tina Turner to Paul McCartney, The Eurhythmics to Amy Winehouse – having recorded on more than 500 tracks in recent years for over 60 artists and played live with dozens more. Recent hits include “Jubel” by Klingande, and “Changes” by Faul, No.1 in 8 countries across Europe. 

He was on the last Eurythmics world tour, and tours Japan often with Eikichi Yazawa, including Tokyo Dome, The Nissan Stadium and over 50 shows at The Budokan Arena. He has played London’s Royal Albert Hall many times with artists such as Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Lisa Stansfield and Boy George.

His greatest love is to play intimate venues as himself, his own music with his favorite musicians. Playing the saxophone family as well as flutes, whistles and the ancient Japanese wind instrument, the Shakuhachi, it is his total passion and commitment to every note that draws people in. He is also a musical director, a writer and an arranger. His love of soul and rock music comes through strongly in his playing, as well as jazz, r+b, funk and world music.
