While playing drums for Gabriel the Marine - a Long Island band that has quickly garnered a lot of critical acclaim, as well as touring opportunities - Davis was too busy from playing shows at night and going to class at SUNY Farmingdale during the day to have much time for any dreaming, period. “I swear, one week I just didn’t sleep,” Davis confided.
