Born in the Arkansas Delta, EB Davis grew up in the then bubbling blues metropolis of Memphis and, like many musicians from the southern states, headed north in the 1960s: to New York. It was here that he founded his first band: the "Soulgroovers", with whom he toured across the United States. They quickly made a name for themselves and shared the stage with stars such as Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes, Millie Jackson and B.B. King.
After the band broke up, he came to Europe for the first time as a member of the 'Drifters' in the early 80s. Stationed as a soldier in West Berlin, he continued to perform and was one of the few artists to play on East German stages, even in front of Soviet soldiers, making an important contribution to the understanding between the parties to the west and east of the Iron Curtain with his music.
His endeavors were crowned with success, for years he toured as the frontman of the "Bayou Blues Band", sometimes even as a support act for Ray Charles, until he founded his internationally first-class "Superband" in Berlin in the 90s, with which he recorded numerous CDs and with which he is still on the road today.The documentary "How Berlin Got The Blues" dedicated to him is a worthy memorial to this exceptional musician.
