Vocalist, bassist and songwriter Kate Davis was recognized as a National Young Arts Silver Winner and twice invited to the Brubeck Summer Jazz Colony. Hailed as a "talent not to be missed" by The Herald Tribune, she's performed at prestigious venues such as the Kennedy Center and Rockwood Music Hall.

On this episode of Song Travels, Davis joins host Michael Feinstein to perform a set of her original songs — including "Movie," which won ASCAP's Robert Allen Award in 2012. She also performs a lighthearted rendition of the standard "Tea for Two."
