Born in New York and raised in Paris, London based Chase Emery Davis brings a unique deep cultural expertise to linguistic direction between French & British.
Languages Coaching & Translation
Chase speaks French, British, English, and Spanish fluently without accent. For 10 years, he has used his skill and great ear to become an exceptional English and French language coach to students of all ages, levels and nationalities focusing on conversation and pronounciation. For fun, Chase continues his own language studies in Mandarin, and he has created a language with its own unique orthography which includes graphemes, phonemes, and grammar rules. See my translations to French in this video.
Composition & Singing
Chase has a world class bass baritone singing voice with a 3 octave range. He started vocal training in 2011 and has performed as a solo singer-songwriter and in musical theatre. He sings in 25 languages and if works for songwriters and producers to sing top line and harmonies. This led to an interest in composition and electronic music for which he earned an undergraduate degree followed by a masters in music production and a thesis “Exploring Vocal Processing and Techniques Across Different Genres from Pre to Post Studio Production and its Impact on Artistic Identity”. Listen to his 80s version of Fly me to the Moon, written for the thesis.
