Robert Davi is an award-winning actor, screenwriter, director, producer, and what many are finding out, an extraordinary jazz vocalist, as stated by many, including Quincy Jones: "As FS would say, 'Koo, Koo.' Wow! I have never heard anyone come this close to Sinatra's sound - and still be himself. Many try, but Robert Davi has the voice, tone, the flavor and the swagger. What a surprise."
From his portrayal of James Bond villain Franz Sanchez in "License to Kill" to FBI profiler Bailey Malone in "Profiler," Robert Davi is one of the film industry's most recognized tough guys, whether on the big screen or on television. Interview Magazine has called him " a latter-day Humphrey Bogart" and GQ Magazine has compared him to the silver screen classics Robert Mitchum and Lee marvin. His tough exterior masks a powerful inner sensitivity, which he calls upon for his most notorious roles providing complexity to characters even where, initially, it was not present. This entertainer always gives passion and heart to all he does. One has to only listen to hi debut music album, Davi Sing Sinatra: ON the Road to Romance (Fontana/Universal Music Group), to experience it.

As a young adult, he studied under several top vocal teachers including the legendary Tito Gobbi, Dan Ferro of Juilliard, Samuel Margolis (who taught Robert Merrill) and most recently, renowned vocal coach Gary Catona.
In October of 2011, Davi released Sinatra Sings: On the Road to Romance (produced by Grammy award-winning producer Phil Ramone) to rave reviews. Within weeks of its highly anticipated release, the album soared onto Billboard Magazine's Top 10 jazz Chart taking the number 6 spot for several weeks.
