A Party with a Purpose

You spoke and we’re listening. We are changing the format of the event and negotiating with venues to bring you a new and improved Gulf Coast Rhythm & Ribs Music Fest. Therefore, we have decided not to host an event this year in order to plan appropriately and solicit additional sponsorships. We will have an even better festival in Spring 2019.

Sunday October 16th - 2016

1:30 PM - Shariah Davis


A beautiful vocalist emerges already knowing what she wants out of life. At the age of 2 years old Shariah began to sing. Shariah sang in school choirs as well as her family church choir. Shariah quickly overtook a deep passion for singing and or performing. Shariah would sang and perform at school in plays and or in drama.

Through maintaining her intuition and diversity of music with years of singing Shariah felt like she was ready to make another statement. Coming from a musical background with both parents heavily involved in the entertainment business, Shariah is ready to hit some high notes of her own.

In summer of 2013 at the age of 14, with her embellished vocals and never being in a studio environment, Shariah was a natural, she went from working in the classroom to mastering the boardroom. Also at the age of 14, Shariah’s first video shoot took place at FSU College of theater.

By the age of 15, this phenom has begun to embark on her future, her vision in life. A career path designed and destined to soar above marquees and bright lights. Fine tuning a more define PoP & R& B sound, of her own. Leading with one of her singles “I Don’t Care.”

Shariah has been performing throughout Tallahassee to Georgia. Shariah performed for the Atlanta Braves Minor Baseball team, she also performed for the Tally wolves’ semiprofessional football team, Blazing 102.3 Birthday Bash, and many more events throughout Tallahassee and Georgia.

Shariah Davis who is now 17 years old is making her dreams come true, to sang and perform. This Tallahassee native is currently working on her first solo album. From artist, performer, singer and songwriter, this young talented filled with passion gives us a lot to behold and look forward to these next upcoming years.
