HHW: Introduce yourself to our readers, let them know your name and where you’re from.
Chris: Hello, I am Christopher Davis aka Davis Chris and I am originally from Houston, Texas.
HHW: I see you have a military background. Anything you learned in the military help you in the music industry?
Chris: The Military helped me become more organized and taught me consistency. That is something that lives with me daily now.
HHW: When did you know that music was actually going to be your career?
Chris: I knew music was going to be my career when I had a freestyle battle back when I was 17 in front of 50 other kids and I dominated the kid I rapped against haha. The other moment was when I made a song in Navy Bootcamp. The song was such a hit and we ended up going on a mini tour performing it everywhere.
HHW: If you could get advice from any producer in the industry, who would it be and why?
Chris: I wouldn’t ask for advice I would just learn and study them. I think actions speak a lot louder than words.I used to hear the super generic “Just keep going” thing all the time. That kinda stuff was useless to me. haha
HHW: What or who influences your music?
Chris: MJ, The Dream,Timbaland, and I would say Paul Wall from Houston Texas did alot.
Has anyone helped you or guided you in getting your foot in the industry?
Chris: I interned for a production team called the Stereotypes and a producer named Detail. I also have three degrees from the Los Angeles Recording School. I have an associates degree in music production, audio engineering and a bachelors in Entertainment Business. I learned from them but I would say I helped myself by putting in all that time and effort to learn and get better. Nobody handed me anything.
HHW: How many albums do you have placements on?
Chris: I’m looking to get on a few more albums this year but currently I have a few small credits with Yo Gotti, Young Dolph,Iggy Azalea, Boosie Badazz, Duke Deuce,Calboy and a couple of TV/FILM Sync Placements.
HHW: What differentiates you from other producers?
Chris: I modestly say I’m pretty good with music theory and I have perfect relative pitch.I usually end up vocal producing 99 percent of the things I work on so that comes in handy often.Lastly, I spend a considerable amount of time on post production and elevating the sonic s of sounds.
HHW: How can artist looking to purchase beats get in contact with you?
Chris: Hit me on my IG @Godavischris
HHW: You have a deal with Empire how did that come about?
Chris: My business partner Shane Foster presented the music we have out and they respected what we had done independently.Empire is an awesome label and distribution company with a proven track record of success.
HHW: What do you hope to get out of your involvement in the music industry?
Chris: My ultimate goal is to be immortal through music. Basically, Francis Scott Key’s music still lives on because we still sing the Star Spangled Banner he wrote back in 1814. MJ and Prince are also examples of artist with music that will live on for years. I hope to make music that lasts years after I’m Gone.
