Caroline Davis Quintet


Mobile since her birth in Singapore, composer and saxophonist Caroline Davis lives in Brooklyn, New York. Her music covers a wide range of styles, which is owed to her shifting home environment as a child. Davis' debut album, Live Work & Play (2012), was featured on All About Jazz's best releases, and she was one of JazzTimes' Best New Artists of the year. Her second album, Doors: Chicago Storylines, is an audio documentary that uniquely sets stories from Chicago's most active musicians from the 80s and 90s alongside her compositions. In 2018, she won the Downbeat Critic's Poll “rising star” in the alto saxophone category. Caroline's third album, Heart Tonic, was released on Sunnyside Records to much acclaim in NPR, the New York Times, and DownBeat. Davis' self-titled Alula, featuring Matt Mitchell and Greg Saunier, was released on New Amsterdam Records in May of 2019, and Persona's Anthems, a collaboration with pianist Rob Clearfield, was released in September of 2019.

Since living in New York, Davis has become active as both a side-person and a leader in a diverse set of music communities (jazz, improvised music, modern classical, R&B, folk). She has shared musical moments, most recently, with Lee Konitz, Angelica Sanchez, The Femme Jam, Matt Mitchell, J. Hoard, Terry Riley, Miles Okazaki, Nicole Zuraitus, Matt Wilson, Rachel Therrien, Thana Alexa, and Billy Kaye. Her collaborations include Maitri (with Ben Hoffmann) and Persona (with Rob Clearfield).

In March of 2019, Davis was a composer-in-residence at the esteemed MacDowell Colony and in the same year, was awarded the Jerome Hill Artist Fellowship for her work between 2019-21. Her compositional practice integrates music with the cognitive sciences, anatomical structures, and the brain, influenced by her Ph.D work in Music Cognition.
