Dale Davis

Portrait of Dale Davis


+ Bass Tutor

Dale has recorded and toured with hundreds of artists including Amy Winehouse, Tina Turner, Paul Young, Emelie Sandé, Mark Ronson and Freak Power. He is one of the UK’s premier session bass players. His work has taken him across the globe and he’s been consistently at the top of his profession for decades. In addition to his session work, Dale continues to work on his own projects and productions and is always on the lookout for new and exciting musical opportunities. He is one of the most passionate and gifted musicians you’re likely to meet, and in the words of the great Amy Winehouse, was “my favourite person to go anywhere with”.
