Known for her precise yet funky rhythms, bass player Eloise Davis lives in New Orleans where she regularly performs and records with celebrated local musicians, including Major Bacon, The Parishioners, Butch Trivette & The Crescent City Twisters and Ready Teddy and the Swampdaddys. She also has served as the bassist for Pat Ramsey and the Blues Disciples, a nationally touring blues band fronted by former Johnny Winter harmonica player Pat Ramsey, who died in November 2008.

Eloise also has played bass with Big Chief Doucette and the Decibelles, featuring Big Chief Alfred Doucette (an authentic Mardi Gras Indian) fronting an all-woman band of some of New Orleans’ most established female musicians. Furthermore, she regularly substitutes in other local bands, such as J.D. Hill & The Jammers.

Eloise plays cello on several albums, including The Parishioners, The Bourbon Cowboys, Burke Ingraffia and Tommy Gavosto. She has performed as a solo cellist with orchestra and used her music theory education in composing classical and modern pieces. Prior to pursuing music full-time in 2005, Eloise served as an editor and writer for local, regional and international publications for 15 years. She holds a Bachelor's of Science in Foreign Service with a focus in Humanities from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service.
