Davis Fetter heard Chuck Berry at the age of 12 and picked up a Gibson 335. Music colored his childhood in California’s Inland Empire. Davis is inspired by the iconic songwriting of such artists as The Smiths, Elvis, Roy Orbison, Lou Reed, and John Lennon, along with the euphoric melodies of The Libertines, Jesus and Mary Chain, and Buddy Holly. This fusion of musical interests gives Davis a unique sound all his own with a special reverence for writing perfect songs. His guitar tones are unique, technical, and spacious at the same time. Vocally, Davis’s range gives him the freedom to hit Little Richard notes with the effortless cool of a Morrissey or Julian Casablancas, and the childlike raucous of Peter Doherty. His sound has been compared to Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Glasvegas, John Lennon, and James Brown.

Formerly under the pseudonym of “Venus Infers”, Davis wrote and released over 35 original songs. He has performed throughout America, touring with artists like Peter Murphy, Blondie, The B-52s, The Airborne Toxic Event, Local Natives, Chris Cornell, and at the SXSW Festival in 2010.

His original music has been featured on MTV, FX, Oxygen, Sky Network, and in various independent films. His songs can be heard on LA’s KROQ FM. Many other tracks have been featured on college radio stations across the U.S. and overseas. Davis starred in an episode of MTV’s The Buried Life, where he performed live on television. Davis has been additionally featured in many notable publications including Nylon Mag, Spin Magazine and The Los Angeles Times, as well as popular music blogs. Nylon Mag featured "Euphoria" on their Sept 2011 mixtape.

Davis performs acoustically, or with his full backing band. Each of his songs comes to life in a unique way through his live shows.

“My dream is to one day capture the same type of magic as John Lennon.”
-Davis

"As frontman of the cheekily named but underrated O.C. quartet Venus Infers, Davis Fetter was a swaggering mod rocker whose Strokes-meets-Britpop music could have come from Manchester as well as much as Huntington Beach. With his foursome on hiatus, Fetter has done more than just adopt a stellar bouffant. Fetter’s first two singles ooze the romanticism of ’50s and ’60s pop idols while resisting a lot of the currently popular retro production. Fetter’s are just sweet love songs with atmospheric sheen, crooned just so, more suitable to 7-inch slabs of vinyl than digital mixtapes. Although you might want to stash a song or two for next Valentine’s Day." - Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.la
