DeCarlos Davis
Independent/ Whisper From Heaven - United States


Born and raised in Winston Salem, NC, DeCarlos began drumming at the age of 5 years old in the church. During his high school years, he participated in both the marching and concert band. His high school junior year he became drum line captain for East Forsyth High School.  He continued his drumming career into college, where he was the drummer for the Guilford College Jazz Band.

Influences such as; Dennis Chambers, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham and Dave Weckl, helped him mentally and physically to be a more creative drummer and expand his different styles. In December 2011, DeCarlos started the Drummers United organization. This organization is about teaching drums, morals, setting goals and getting involved with local schools, churches and communities.

DeCarlos was 1 of 8 drummers to compete in Roland's V-drum competition on October 31, 2012 in Austin, TX. Currently DeCarlos is the drummer for Whisper From Heaven. He also travels periodically with various bands, performing at clinics and as a great social media following.  In the future he plans to release his solo drum DVD/CD project.
