Biography

"From the love for Jazz to Song-writing."

Born in Italy, Davina started her musical studies at the age of nine. Being raised in a family with authentic taste for music, Davina grew up listening to many different artists and genres: from A. C. Jobim to George Gershwin, to more pop and soul artists and songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Sting, Lianne la Havas and more. Arrived in The Netherlands in 2016 she dedicated herself to Jazz music (Codarts Conservatory - Rotterdam), gaining vocal style and texture. She participated in projects organized by the worldwide famous Metropole Orchestra, working with English conductor, composer and arranger Jules Buckley and one of the most popular soul singers of the Netherlands, Shirma Rouse. In 2018 a new chapter began when she felt the urge of writing own material and exploring her artistic identity. It didn't take long before opportunities came along her path: in July 2019 Davina performed on one of North Sea Jazz Festival stages with a full line-up.

 

On November 26 (2021) she released her DEBUT ALBUM Desiderio, which is now available on all digital platforms and in physical copies. The record includes single Lullaby of the Sea, which features 4-time GRAMMY award-winning bass player, composer and producer Michael League.
