Bill Davis – A Visionary Musician

Bill Davis – A Visionary Musician

Writing By Aida Cloutier

Bill Davis is intently playing the saxophone before a live audience. He feels a familiar thrill as the music courses through his veins as if it were a physical entity. This, he truly believes, is the life he was meant to live. Bill, who is visually impaired, is currently performing a one-man show at the Sparks restaurant, Jazz – A Louisiana Kitchen.

Bill was born with damaged eyes. He was forced to have cataracts removed from them when he was only six months old. When Bill turned 30, he was also diagnosed with the early stages of Glaucoma and currently suffers from full-blown Glaucoma. He will never be able to regain any of his lost site, but he can stop his eyes from deteriorating any further by keeping his pressure down and taking prescription eye medicine.

Bill Davis performs under his solo monikier, "Me, Myself & I" at Jazz - A Louisiana Kitchen in Sparks, NV.

Every morning when Bill wakes, he plans on trying to learn something new that he didn’t know the day before. Bill uses an iPad to play backing tracks during his solo performances. This new piece of technology—the iPad—has really taught Bill a great deal more about music. At the moment, Bill is content and life is good.
