Davis Mallory releases video to raise mental health awareness

Timed to coincide meaningfully with Mental Health Awareness month, out recording artist Davis Mallory (aka DAVIS) is encouraging others through new releases "Lifeline" and "Heavy" to combat and support others facing mental health challenges.

Growing up the grandson of Christian psychiatrist and author James D. Mallory (The Kink and I and Battle of the Sexes), DAVIS felt a calling to bring awareness to the topic of mental health.

Raised singing in his church choir in Georgia during his adolescence, DAVIS is now sober for just over four years and dedicates time to helping others recover from addictions, too.

He explains, "I'm very passionate about the topic of mental health. As the grandson of a psychiatrist, I do, in some ways, feel a call to help and minister to others through my music. The song 'Lifeline' specifically ends with a list of national resources for those battling addictions, depression, or people who may have been witness to or victims of human trafficking."

With his new release, "Heavy," DAVIS tackles the issue of mental health. After receiving encouragement from Revry CEO Damian Pelliccione to collaborate with other queer artists, DAVIS created the track alongside Nashville-based LGBTQ rappers Daisha McBride and Blake Lieder, with both artists appearing in the music video as well.

Filmed in Nashville, TN, by director Derrick Lipschitz, the music video offers a visually appealing, artistic interpretation of how relationships can be complicated. The video shows each featured artist talking to their significant other while wearing a specific color: DAVIS in orange, Blake Lieder in aquamarine, and Daisha McBride in purple.

"Heavy" appears on DAVIS's recently released sophomore album Little Victory. The album was written in Stockholm, Sweden, Berlin, Germany, and Nashville, TN, and features many Nashville pop artists, including artist Madeline Finn (American Idol), Miss Audrey (winner of Nashville Independent Music Awards' Best Pop Artist in 2019) and Luma (vocalist for high-profile EDM DJs Nurko, Adventure Club, Crystal Skies, Last Heroes, ARMNHMR), among others.

The new release come as DAVIS is approaching 1 million streams on Spotify with his song "Without You I Feel Good." Other new releases are set and will be available in the coming months.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
