Biography

Jonathan Houseman Davis (born January 18, 1971) is the American vocalist for the multiplatinum nu metal band KoЯn. He was born and raised in Bakersfield, California, where he lived with his father and stepmother.

As well as being KoЯn’s lead singer, he has also played drums. Davis writes songs on guitar and other various instruments.

Davis was the last member to join the band. James ‘Munky’ Shaffer and Brian ‘Head’ Welch discovered him in a bar, initially intending to only stay for a few minutes. Upon seeing Davis performing with his then-band Sexart, however, they were compelled to stay for the whole set, and as soon as the set was over Brian and James approached Davis with an offer to join their then band Creep. At first he didn’t accept the offer, but upon consulting a psychic, he agreed, and KoЯn was born. In early years, he was known for wearing a variety of normal and customized Adidas tracksuits onstage, which became a kind of “trademark” for all KoЯn fans.

KoЯn released their self-titled debut in 1994. It peaked at #72 on the billboard. To date they have released eight studio albums, achieving Platinum certification for each, with the exception for their newly released Untitled KoЯn album. Davis is the older half brother of former Adema and Midnight Panic vocalist, Mark Chavez.
