A Sneak Peak Inside…

TRAVELS

JERRY J. DAVIS

The phone had been ringing for quite a while.

Dodd noticed the ringing. Then he noticed it more. It was like he was coming back from somewhere down a long hallway to find a phone ringing at the very end. Then it took him a moment to realize he should answer…

Album/Song/Tour we are excited about right now.

I’ll be seeing some of my favorite bands in July at Inkcarceration Festival in Mansfield Ohio! I’m excited to meet fellow musicians and explore the historical reformatory!

What singers or bands inspired you growing up?

My mom is my biggest musical inspiration! I also love my muse Amy Lee of Evanescence! I had the honor of meeting her in 2017 as an ultimate birthday present!

Who are your favorite artists today?

Amy Lee of Evanescence, Maria Brink of In This Moment, Breaking Benjamin, Epica, and Roy Kahn of Conception Music.

What non-musical things inspire your music?

Nature and abandoned places always create a haunting melody in my mind.

Is there a place where you go to be inspired?

A forest or sitting by the ocean is the best place to clear my mind and be inspired of the world around me.

What’s been the greatest achievement of your band?

Honestly, the greatest achievement was one of the last vocal lessons I had with my teacher who has now passed. After completing a difficult aria, he looked up with a smile and said, “the mouse has finally roared!” That will forever be my greatest achievement as my teacher meant the world to me, and gave me the tools and knowledge to pursue my dream of music!

Where was the coolest place to play? Where did you enjoy yourselves the most?

The coolest place was back in 2011 when my family was invited to Sweden. My dad had an exhibit of his art, and I was asked to perform in their courtyard. We stayed at the coolest bed and breakfast that overlooked this beautiful landscape. It was like being in Skyrim! I enjoyed myself the most walking the grounds of the castle, pretending for a moment that I had traveled back to the days of old.

What are your favorite horror movies?

Woman in Black is my favorite hands down! I love the traditional macabre horror! I also enjoyed Dead Silence, and Oculus because of the paranormal horror aspect.

What was the scariest night of your life?

The scariest moment would have to be a graveyard adventure my mom and I had while I was working a show in Michigan. We traversed the Holly Cemetery, known to hold the grave of George Washington’s first commanding officer. We found a section in the back of the cemetery where a number of unmarked tombstones lay. We both were startled to hear what sounded like a horse and carriage, followed by the beating of a drum. With my camera in hand, I asked my mom to turn to take a quick picture of her. I ended up taking two pictures, because the first displayed an eerie green formation over my mom’s head. I examined both to be sure, but no denying there was something around us. We left soon after, and when I showed her the picture we both got a chill! I haven’t quite experienced a night that spooky as of yet!

If you could play anywhere in the world, where would it be and who would be your opening band?

I would play in another castle if I could, performing in a courtyard was the most fantastic experience! Maybe a castle ruin in Ireland? Or Dracula’s Castle! A girl can dream!

What are you working on now for future release?

I am currently working on my debut solo album which will have a dark fantasy and Celtic theme to it! It will be a mix of traditional Irish, Welsh and Scottish ballads mixed with some of my own creations! I am extremely excited to finish the process of writing and recording the tracks!

Final thoughts / Anything you want to tell the listeners?

If you have a passion, follow it. Learn and refine your craft to the best of your ability. Never let anyone tell you, you can’t do something. Even if it isn’t the arts, follow your passions and your dreams! And always appreciate the value of others, including the creative arts. Imagine a world without music, art, or writing? Without acting or dancing? It’s possible if you support your – fellow artist by buying their work on their websites, seeing them live etc. It’s up to us to keep the arts alive! Never give up, and always help those if you can!
