Ashley Tamar Davis
New York Times describes Tamar as:
“Having a voice that can fill 3 stadiums and the moves of Tina Turner.”
Tamar, also known as the muse and favorite singer of her mentor Prince, gained notoriety for being the music legends “Protégé” while co-writing their Grammy-nominated duet “Beautiful, Loved, and Blessed.” With recent jaw-dropping performances on NBC’s “The Voice: Season X,” Tamar adds a Broadway debut in “Motown, the Musical” (Diana Ross u/s, Esther Gordy, Gladys Knight, Gladys Horton, Lula) to her resume. Tamar has toured with Tyler Perry’s “Madea Gets a Job” prior to touring with “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” “Laugh to Keep from Crying,” “The Marriage Counselor,” and “A Madea Christmas”; Lions Gate productions set to home DVD rentals.
With a recent performance for our former 42nd President and 1st Lady Barbara Bush for their 19th Annual “Celebration of Reading” and for our 43rd President George W. Bush at the “Helping a Hero” event, Tamar continues to excel in creating her own path. Tamar recently launched an interactive ipad, iphone and Android Music app with a follow-up performance for former Secretary of State at “The Men of Distinction” dinner. A graduate of University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor in Music Business Tamar was honored as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts while attending Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, where Tamar also received 3 Gold medals in the NAACP ACT-SO competition. In 2010, Tamar initiated and created Syren Music Group, LLC: a music entertainment company that specializes in the advancement of independent music and live entertainment which was funded through personal finances acquired while on tour and starring in Tyler Perry’s stage-play “The Marriage Counselor” as the only nuanced lead (New York Times). Through the creation of Syren Music Group, LLC Tamar launched her independent album “My Name is Tamar” (3.24.2011), which has garnered sales from Japan, Belgium, Barcelona, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and the United States with additional article write-ups from Glamour magazine, VIBE magazine, the New York Times, US Weekly, Sophisticate’s Black Hair and the Vegas Tribune, with complementing appearances on Great Day Houston, Saturday Night Live, Good Morning America, and the BET Awards. Tamar is the co-founder of The Tamar Davis Project: an international, educational and artistic project designed for singers, artists, musicians, writers, painters, composers, choreographers, and dancers to benefit from opportunities that will become catalyst to successfully launch their careers under the watchful eye of industry professionals turned mentors.
During the NBA ALL-STAR week 2013, Tamar introduced her philanthropic and educational brand by premiering a “College, Career, and Empowerment Summit: Inspiring the Future, Recapturing the Essence of Greatness,” as an inspiration to our cities youth about the importance of attaining a higher education. This monumental achievement was successful through the partnership with Houston Community College and Stewart Cadillac (just to name a few) with special panelist guests such as Howard White (VP Brand Jordan/NIKE), Dr. Reagan Flowers (CSTEM), John Lucas III (Toronto Raptors; NBA) and Dr. Umar Johnson (Certified Psychologist) and influential City Council Members and political activists.
Many artists and musicians have contributed enormously to society through their work, striking anemotional chord with their audience, and helping cultivate a culture in our society. But the typical artist is left to navigate through the industry on their own without the knowledge, education and skill of the business behind the craft. I desire to be the catalyst in empowering the budding artists to achieve maximum success with a complete understanding of how to define and grow one’s brand.

Dj Jedi’s 10 Questions with Ashley Tamar Davis!
A- It’s a quick-zany read targeted to aspiring performers about the do’s and dont’s of the ever-changing Entertainment industry, funny revelations that can either keep an artist working or get one fired, knowledgeable recording agreement verbiage, definitions, and encouraging and inspirational quotes, just to name a few. For educational institutions and arts programs, I have also created an accompanying workbook that includes exercises, templates, sample contracts, and more.
This book is a foundational tool as a pay-it-forward insight into not only the business of the Entertainment industry, but also revelations and principles about the lack of awareness about what’s available for us. With the removal of arts programs and the accelerated use of technology, I began uploading vlogs about the Entertainment industry. Through the vlogs, I received an influx of inbox messages full of questions, emails and requests to perform and conduct my Master Classes in front of an overlooked generation that wants to learn the business but have no clue where to begin. Everyone is not to be onstage, nor in front of the camera. There are careers that are not being promoted to artistic driven hopefuls and yet, some can’t comprehend topics such as publishing, royalties, or how to read a contract.”
