Chase was born in New York and grew up in Paris, France, which influenced his love for languages, art, poetry, literature, and croissants.
“Growing up I learned 5 languages to varying degrees of proficiency. I speak French fluently but I am most proud of Spanish because I learned it primarily by listening repeatedly to audiobooks of “Harry Potter” until my parents wanted to throttle me.” says Chase.
“Foremost, I am not linear. I love creativity and have always been inspired to add, change or modify things I find interesting. From early on I was always drawn to music, acting, creative writing, filmmaking, and art. I have acted in films, performed in Musical Theatre, Busk in London, and was even a virtual character in the video game Beyond: Two Souls.
Chase started acting professionally in Paris at the age of 13 while going to school and swimming competitively for his school. He has studied with legendary performance coaches Judith Malina for Artaudian methods, Marilyn Fried for Stanislavski methods, and Susan Harloe (Word for Word) for Physical Theatre. He had additional training at National Youth Theatre, British Youth Music UK, Ecole Jacques Lecoq, and Royal Central School.
After a summer session with the National Youth Theatre he discovered he had a baritone singing voice when he returned to Paris. Vocal lessons started in earnest until his parents decided to pack him off to boarding school in Cumbria. "A beautiful place, rather remote, but where I could study what I wanted - literature, art, and drama. It was an absolute revelation to me that this was even possible", says Chase.
Chase studied with some of the best voice coaches in Paris and London, jazz singers Valerie Beatson, Lucy Philips, Claire Martin OBE, opera stars Franco Pomponi, Ross Ramgobin, and X Factor coach Ade Bayo. He has a world class bass baritone voice with an astonishing 3 octave range reminiscent of Elvis Presley, and the smooth timbre of Nat King Cole. Chase sings in 24 anguages with near perfect accent.
Chase has a passion to compose music and write songs. He taught himself music theory, at last minute dropped art and was offered a place at Brunel University where he graduated with a degree in Music Composition and later a Masters Degree in Music Production from the University of York. His final thesis was "Exploring Pop Vocal Processing Across Different Genres during the Recording and Production Techniques In Pre and Post Studio Environments" Chase is currently focusing on composing jazz, EDM and a new genre of lyrical Trap
Chase is one of the top professional young bilingual British & French voice over talents in the UK and is a top on set film polyglot dialect and performance coach.

"His story is positively amazing, so incredibly well-written and so moving.
Had I not known that it was written by someone sixteen going on seventeen (I feel a tune coming on) it would not have surprised me to find it in a literary publication. In the United States, and I imagine this is true in Great Britain as well, there are schools that would look at the sum total of his creative talents, see an emerging talent and work to nurture it." -

The amazing Chase Davis kicked off the party with an assortment of songs in different languages that got the crowd going.
Davis is a multi-talented musical sensation who started his musical career eight years ago. He originally wanted to become a film actor, but all that changed when he became enamoured by music. Encouraged by an instructor who loved his baritone voice, Chase started taking lessons with a renowned jazz and classical vocalist. He then decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in composition and a master’s degree in music production.
Born in New York and raised in Paris, Davis is inspired by different cultures and has always been “people-oriented.” For him, music is thrilling, because it allows him to learn about people and where they come from. His passion for music made it possible for him to learn how to sing in 10 different languages, but he is particularly fond of performing in French and Spanish. He considers himself lucky to have studied under musical marvels like Judith Malina, Valerie Beatson, Franco Pomponi and Ade Bayo.
And he now produces and writes Jazz and Electronic Dance music, and recently started a new lyrical rap project. Davis even created two special tracks for eniGma’s 7th Celebration of Arab Glamour & Success, which he composed using untraditional instruments like the Chinese Erhu and the Egyptian Zither.
Aside from music, Davis is the voice of Eurostar advertisements in France and has performed as Gaston in the musical production, Beauty and the Beast, and as the Pharaoh in Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Davis was especially happy to participate in eniGma’s event as he enjoyed experiencing the modern side of the Arab region, in contrast to the stereotypes depicted in the western media.
