Bio

Davin Michael Stedman is the founder and front man of the Seattle band, The Staxx Brothers. He recently launched a solo career simply known as Dāvin, that began with an extraordinary twist of fate.

Dāvin found himself in Sly & Robbie's studio his first day in Kingston, Jamaica where the Godfathers of Dancehall asked him to play a song. He picked up his guitar and Sly & Robbie and Anthony Red Rose said they heard a hit. "Free Your Mind" was born and was followed by an entire debut solo album of collaborations with the greatest studio musicians on the island, who kept hearing singles.

And as they say, the future was wide open.

The album, WEST INDIAN ROCK is slated for release in November 2022, with distribution by Tuff Gong International. The record is exclusively and privately available for Dāvin's Patreons (Patreon.com/davinmichaelstedman).

Dāvin continues to book shows and record with The Staxx Brothers. Their most recent single "Natural" features acclaimed guitarist and long time pal Jimmy James (The True Loves, Delvon Lamar Trio). The Staxx Brothers 5th album, WHEN THE STREETS WERE GOLD is coming out in 2023.

The transformation of Davin Michael Stedman is remarkable. It's much deeper than his new look, or even his new sound, courtesy of Jamaican producers such as Sly & Robbie and Anthony Red Rose.

Those Dancehall superstars heard Top 40 hits as he strummed them his catchy songs with his left hand. They also sensed an urgency and even destiny in the creole kid from the land of Hendrix and Nirvana. Even as Earl "Chinna" Smith noted, producing him "a Natural Mystic."

Stedman is on the warpath. Yet he is at peace with himself. Whether he's fronting The Staxx Brothers at another sold out reunion show or channeling Dean Martin and Louie Prima at an Italian Restaurant in Little Italy, with his new combo, Jazz Cabbage, a sense of destiny is about him and all the music he touches these days.
