CAST & CREDITS

Directed by Quincy Davis

Quincy Davis is a dedicated and multi-faceted artist based in Portland, USA utilizing video, music composition, lyricism and visual storytelling to deliver powerful pieces of art with the intention of initiating personal and collective transformation. Much of his work draws from his experience of out of a self-destructive lifestyle to find his path. Over ten years ago he committed to sobriety and has walked a path involving traditional earth-based ceremonies of spiritual preparation.

He is the founding member of Seven Vision Studios, a sovereign media production studio and REBELWISE (Hip-Hop crew / artist collective) producing art intended to uplift our people and our communities with high-caliber, modern-world-fusion music production and cutting-edge, intentional lyricism.

Since 2011, Quincy has been involved in youth education work, visiting High-schools, treatment centers and lock down facilities as a speaker, workshop leader and part-time teacher. In 2016 he co-founded Cypher CURE utilizing the Hip-Hop cypher for community support and positive expression. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, he established Voices of Wisdom to serve some of the most vulnerable youth in our community and offer a bridge to elder wisdom.​

Quincy envisions continuing to collaborate with artists across the world and especially visiting Mongolia to re-connect with his indigenous blood ancestry.
