Billy Newton-Davis grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and, as a teenager, was one of two lead singers in a local soul band called The Illusions. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University and, upon graduation, moved to New York to pursue his dreams on Broadway. He appeared in several Broadway shows including Bubbling Brown Sugar, Eubie!, Got Tu Go Disco, and Stop the World—I Want to Get Off, starring Sammy Davis Jr. His début singing gig, in 1973, was as a backing vocalist for Gloria Gaynor, and,

in 1989, he released “Can’t Live with You, Can’t Live Without You”, a duet with Céline Dion. A formidable presence in the Canadian music industry, Newton-Davis received JUNOs

for best R&B/soul recording for his first two albums, Love Is a Contact Sport (1986) and Spellbound (1989), and more recently a JUNO for best dance recording of the year for his work with deadmau5 on “All U Ever Want”. Newton-Davis is featured on releases by The Boomtang Boys, Nino Anthony, and Melleefresh. From 1991 to 1993, he was a member of Canadian singing supergroup The Nylons.

In Toronto, Newton-Davis has become a favourite performer for philanthropic and corporate events, and regularly appears in the city’s best live venues performing jazz, gospel, and R&B. For decades, Newton-Davis has been lending his voice as an activist for HIV/AIDS awareness and the ongoing fight for equality.

Newton-Davis’s latest EP, released in 2020, is a jazzy, bluesy, gospelicious offering recorded live off the floor and features some of his favourite classics from the Great American Songbook.  This Spring 2024, Billy will release a brand new album.  More songs from the American Song book and 4 new original collborations.
