TWO-TIME GRAMMY, NOMINATED WRITER AND PRODUCER CHRIS "BIG DOG" DAVIS TEAMS WITH A CAREGIVER TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE CAREGIVER
"Hip hop...upbeat..underneath jazz tones." Chris 'Big Dog' Davis
"I feel like I can breathe." Caregiver/Executive Producer, Keisha L. Jackson
As we start to see daylight through the darkness of the pandemic, it's the perfect time to pay musical homage to our paid and unpaid caregivers. Full of light funk and atmospheric grace, the silky, easy grooving piano and sax driven ballad, "Caregiver" is a beautiful and thoughtful collaboration between music industry legend, keyboardist/producer (and cancer survivor) Chris "Big Dog" Davis, and world-class musicians, and is inspired by executive producer/caregiver Keisha L. Jackson. Beyond the sultry soulful flow, track highlights include sparkling and colorful solo improvisations and hypnotic vocalizations.
Davis (caree) and Jackson (caregiver) dedicate CAREGIVER to the millions of paid and unpaid caregivers in the world.

Davis has also performed as a solo artist at the Berks Jazz Fest and Philly South Kitchen and Jazz Parlor and is the music director for the Brass City Jazz Fest.
Keisha L. Jackson is the executive producer of the single "Caregiver". The impetus for Keisha to produce "Caregiver" is two things: being the primary caregiver for her mother who had Stage Four Inoperable Lung Cancer and the primary caregiver for one of her brothers who fell, causing internal bleeding and was placed on life support; secondly, witnessing how immediately calming and therapeutic a song was to her mother and seeing how her brother would calm when Keisha would sing into his ear.
Composing/producing "Caregiver" is two-time Grammy nominee Chris "Big Dog" Davis.
