Ben Davis | Back

Ben Davis has stated his mission as making "alternative string music that people want to listen to", a vision which he achieved with his Mercury-nominated group Basquiat Strings. But he had been making interesting music for a good many years previously, frequently in association with the undersung reedsman Chris Biscoe, but also with artists as diverse as Evan Parker, Julian Joseph and Claire Martin. While he likes to explore elements of free improvisation, there is always a strong sense of melody in everything he does.
