|Birth name||Calyssa Rae Davidson|
|Born||December 27, 1989|
|Origin||Los Angeles, CA, U.S.|
|Years active||2007- Present|
Davidson was born in Beverly Hills, California. She dropped out of high school in the beginning of her junior year to pursue music, only to discover that she only needed to take two more classes to earn her high school diploma. She completed these classes at Santa Barbara City College, graduating ahead of her class. She studied violin and music theory for 3 years at the Colburn School of Performing Arts, in Los Angeles, California. She is currently attending the Royal College of Music in London, England.
She has recorded solo violin for local bands, groups and commercials in her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA, including tracks for classic rock band, "Eye and Brain," as well as the theme for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
Lately Davidson has been employed with Springfield once again for the Holiday Celebration on Ice in Little Rock, Arkansas. There she played alongside Springfield and the classic rock band REO Speedwagon before a sold-out Verizon Arena. The show then aired later on NBC nation-wide and was rebroadcast on five other networks.
In late 2008, Davidson was offered a role on the Disney Channel series JONAS, but turned it down when producers insisted on the character playing the cello instead of the violin. Despite declining the job, Davidson was asked to perform for the cast and crew on the set of JONAS.
