Album Notes
Cole Davis, a singer, songwriter, pianist, guitarist, violinist, and violist. The only thing more varied than her choice of instrument is her musical style and genre. Classically trained in the violin and viola she traded them in for the piano, the guitar and the pen. Her music is a blend of R&B’s groove and the composition of jazz brought together by a profound lyrical statement.

Ferris Wheel, the inaugural release on her own label (Semaj), solely written and composed by Cole Davis is a musical hybrid of R&B, jazz, folk and soul. All the elements are joined by her perspective on relationships and the world we live in. “Far From The Tree” examines family relationships while “The Cost” ask us all to question our relationship to our world. Lyrics that provoke an inner dialogue yet beg for the truth to be shared with one another. Davis is garnering fans through her expanding tour efforts and the worldwide visibility of the internet.

She is joined by Peter Horvath, Ken Harrill, Dewayne Pate, Billy “Shoes” Johnson and Kenneth Nash, the San Francisco Bay Area’s finest and world renowed for their instrumental stylings. This is the first printing of Ferris Wheel, a limited edition disc for those who are fans from the onset.

"When" is my favorite, I love them all very relaxing and soothing. It can put a smile on your face and hum along with the melody.


I came across this wonderful artist on, while I was at work. I didn't recognize the voice or the name, but I was thoroughly impressed. About a week passed and I was able to hear a few more tracks by her, and at that moment I was won over. I stopped what I was doing, went to Cd Baby and purchased her Cd. The BEST Valentine's gift I have bought myself in a very long time. From beginning to end the music, the lyrics, and her unique voice captivates you and pulls you in. She has a classy style all her own! Cole Davis is a force to be reckoned with.....A true talent that I look forward to hearing more great music from!

Loved the whole CD. Smooth! easy to listen and relate to. This young artist really has something to say. I enjoyed the CD and look foward to future CD's being just as lovely. I Definely will be following her progress.


Smooth, Rich & Original
You a good cup of Java, this music goes down really smooth. The artist invokes meaningful lyrics coupled with good music. Cole Davis is an original NOT like anyone else. Look out for this fast rising artist! My favorite songs are "Far from the Tree" and "Better in my Mind"............Girl, ain't it the truth! MUCH LOVE CD and keep up the excellent work! CHEERS

A Cool, Smooth and Relaxing Breath of Fresh Air with Meaning
This is the feeling I experience everytime I listen to Cole Davis. Her music calms and relaxes you in any situation, while her meaningful lyrics tell powerful stories. Just Listen and you will know. Thank you La Rhonda for sharing such a wonderful artist with me.

Loved the cd, very relaxing and enoyable to listen to
The best music that I have heard in a long time reminds me of someone from the 50s or 60s

Being a vocalist I am very critical of "local" artist. From the moment I stuck the cd in my player - it transformed me. This is how music should make you feel. The lyrics, the chord changes, the arrangements. There is not much about this cd that I don't love. My favorite is 'It Ain't"!!! It's "da bomb"!!! I have purchased several copies just to give to friends. That's how excited I am about this cd. It's worth the purchase. TRUST ME!!!


The Bomb!! Quality music with good lyrics.
One of the best CD's I've heard in a long, long time. This is real music for people who appreciate quality storytelling and live instruments. It goes to to soul, touches the spirit and does everything good music should do. This is not simply a beautiful face, this is good, handmade music with depth.


Excellent CD, loved every song and music.
This is a very refreshing sound. Who is this artist? I would like to hear more of her music in the future. I have email all of my friends and relative her cdbaby email address. I have not picked my favorite song as of yet but they all are so great.

I will definitely follow Nicole Davis' music.
