Stephen Allen Davis wrote what would become his first hit song when he was 17 years old. It was 1967, the summer he graduated from high school, and the smash hit was " TAKE TIME TO KNOW HER," recorded by Percy Sledge. It soon went to the top of the charts and earned Stephen his first two BMI awards in the R&B and Pop categories.
Stephen has gone on to have over 300 recordings, including an unprecedented eight (8) by Joe Cocker and also Diana Ross’s signature hit “The Best Years of My Life." Stephen has received 19 BMI Awards to date, and his songs have been on records, which have sold over 40 million units. Such diverse acts as Tammy Wynette, Meatloaf, Memphis Slim, John Hiatt, and many others have chosen to record Stephen Allen Davis's songs.
Stephen has recorded nine LPs. Toured the world and played many sold-out shows. Stephen is on his fifth book for release. He wrote and directed his first TV pilot, "Welcome To Mouthfull," recently. He is currently on the faculty of "The London Song Writing Academy." Music has always been his passion, but now that also encompasses Film and TV development.
