Mini Bio (1)
Beau Davidson is a two-time regional Emmy-nominated singer, actor, songwriter, and multifaceted performer. Born in Memphis, TN, he was heavily influenced by the music of Elvis Presley, Al Green, and Otis Redding, and thus his music became reminiscent of the soulful inflections of "the Memphis sound."
In Memphis, Beau began taking classical piano lessons at age five, but would also learn contemporary hits like "Great Balls of Fire" by ear. Beau was soon winning regional talent competitions, competing as a finalist in The Mid-South Fair Youth Talent Contest.
Beau then attended Northwestern University's School of Music in Chicago, where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in vocal performance/opera and political science. At Northwestern, Beau appeared as "Danny Zuko" in Grease, "Barrett" in Titanic, and as the leading man in many other school productions. Although operatically trained, Beau began writing original music that captured his own Memphis experience.
Beau appeared in small roles on Days of Our Lives and Gilmore Girls. In between projects, he wrote music that he later released independently, and produced a corresponding music video for his single "More Than I Can Give," which he placed on the websites of CMT, GAC, MTV, and Vh1, indicative of the fact that Beau's music appealed to a diverse audience. He has been nominated for a Mid-South Emmy award twice for his song "Blessed": once for the music video and once as a composer.
Beau was featured on Oprah in 2009, due to his at-large songwriting via Skype. He was featured in Country Weekly magazine and gained international attention when asked to pen and premiere an honorary lullaby for Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's daughter, Sunday Rose, on a New Zealand morning television show. Beau was a top 64 finisher in CMT's Music City Madness original song contest with his song "Mr. Wrong," and opened for Josh Gracin and Craig Morgan. He has also appeared and performed on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, Fox's The Strategy Room, and Entertainment Tonight.
