SF Artist Garrick Davis Will Discuss His Experience in the Music Industry
What does it take to become a music entrepreneur? San Francisco artist Garrick Davis will discuss his experience in the music industry as part of an ongoing series of workshops sponsored by the Cañada College Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities designed to help budding entrepreneurs.
The workshop will be held from 2 to 3:15 p.m., Thursday, May 15 in the Grove. It is free and open to the public.
"Rock, Blues, Funk and Passion" describe both the musical influences and the dynamic performance style of the San Francisco guitarist/singer/songwriter.
Davis has toured the past 10 years on the West Coast. Davis performs regularly as a soloist, particularly at The Union Room at Biscuits and Blues in downtown San Francisco where for the last three years he has taken full advantage of the opportunity to hone his performing skills and command the stage in front of international audiences who readily purchase merchandise and stay in touch beyond the initial encounter. He takes particular delight performing with his band with whom he shares an insatiable love and respect for but is happiest with any configuration that includes his son Zach on piano and supporting vocals.
Davis teaches guitar privately in the San Francisco Peninsula area with a roster that includes both children and adults, some of which can be seen on his YouTube Channel. Garrick has conducted public group classes for the City of San Mateo, Oakland Feather River Camp and Oracle Corporation. Davis is a cheerleader, respecting his student's pursuit at whatever level they may be.
Davis recently released his fourth album, the pure acoustic “The Good Road”.
