The Davis & Robb Duo was born as a silver lining of the difficult pandemic times in 2020. The pair come from different sides of a musical coin; Emily a classical Violinist and Andrew a jazz double bassist. Due to busy individual careers, they had previously had little time to play together. During the first lock-down they discovered the joy in creating music together and combining their two musical languages.

Andrew and Emily quickly realised that there was little available repertoire for this unusual instrumentation. Not wanting this to be a barrier to performing together, they created new, exciting and interesting arrangements themselves. They played around with well known repertoire and also sought out music by lesser known composers and traditional songs. They performed several successful live-stream duo concerts, and the success of these propelled them towards creating an album together.

They were awarded Creative Scotland funding in 2021 to record and release their debut album, 'Long Days, Short Nights'. The album features classical music, works from the Great American Songbook and folk music from Brazil, Scotland and Norway. They commissioned a new work for the ensemble by Scottish violinist and composer, Catriona Price which is the title track of their album. They believe that chamber music should be musically and representatively diverse, something that’s reflected in the music that they choose to play.

The album was released to critical acclaim in February 2023, with radio features on BBC Scotland and Classic FM, as well as a magazine feature in BBC Music Magazine. The duo are currently booking performance opportunities across Scotland for the 2024-2025 season.
