J*Davey is a duo that has been self-proclaimed as the "Black Eurythmics" has been on the scene for a while now.  Their music is fresh and definitely a shot in the arm for modern R&B.

J*Davey is the swift kick in the ass I've been praying for Black Music to produce"

- ?uestlove (The Roots)

The duo consists of singer/songwriter Jack Davey and producer Brook D'Leau. I have known about this duo for a while now, and had a chance to open for them along with my Rhythm Lab co-host Don Cuco a few years back in Minneapolis.  They combined the sounds of jazz, funk, with a dash of 80's R&B with a hip hop swagger.  They one of the few artists that definitely stand-out in the cookie-cutter R&B world.  J*Davey's sonic genetic make-up could include Prince, Talking Heads, Grace Jones, New Order and The Police.

They are about to dropped their independently released double cd "Beauty in Distortion/Land of the Lost" on July 1st.  Definitely do not sleep on J*Davey.
