Samm Davis, Havenots


Now legendary for his smooth style of music, Samm Davis, who was born in Pennsylvania and raised throughout New Jersey, began writing at 9 years old. In 2011 he started performing on the local circuit in New Jersey and by 2012 took his diverse talents to Washington DC to perform for top A&Rs for major record labels such as Amir Windom at Atlantic Records as well as Def Jam, Sony, and Interscope. His musical content received high praise, as did his exquisite performance. The one-on-one meeting at that round table would change his life forever. Still unsigned and ambitious, Samm would make his way back to the stage and gain the respect of audiences abroad.

Becoming a member of his drummer’s band Brainfood Project in 2013, Samm began performing in NYC – Tribeca, The Shrine, and outdoor festivals in Brooklyn. Later that year, known to the public as Smuve, released his first single “Slow Down.” The record had local success and gained international recognition from fans across the globe. Additionally, Samm also began working with legends such as Michael Bivens (New Edition) and along with producer Victor Battle the production company Pensoul was created and singles for Bivens’ new group were written. When the group was shelved and the single “Do Me Like You Dance” was never released, it was back to the drawing board.

From 2014 onward, constantly looking to grow and expand his horizons, Samm, known as Smuve, decided it was time for that change. He branded himself Samm after one of his greatest influencers, the incomparable Sammy Davis Jr., and became Samm Davis. Working on his latest EP entitled the “Havenots,” the project ended up being the cornerstone for the man you see today. With deep lyrics and soulfully classic Hip Hop production, Samm managed to tell his story in a way that only he could deliver. Aside from music, Samm is introducing his startup clothing line, Samm Davis Collection, and was cast and worked on the set of NBC’s “Blacklist.”
