Daniel Travis Davison (born January 28, 1983) is an American drummer, musician, artist, and filmmaker. Davison was born in Douglasville, Georgia,[1] and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois. He is best known for being a co-founder and former drummer of the band Norma Jean. He wrote and recorded on every record of Norma Jean's until 2007. His last record with the band was Redeemer. Davison was also the last active drummer of the Florida-based metalcore band Underoath before the band's breakup in 2013.[2]

Davison is also an artist and video director. In 2007, after 10 years with Norma Jean, he decided to part ways with the band and pursue his own artistic endeavors. Upon leaving Norma Jean he founded the film and video company ISTHMUS Studios.[3]

In early 2010, Davison started playing music again with the indie rock band Colour Revolt. He played several shows with them and recorded drums on their latest record, The Cradle.[4][5] In May 2010, Davison succeeded drummer Aaron Gillespie in the now disbanded Underoath. Davison helped write and record what would be Underoath's final record, Ø (Disambiguation).[6][7][8] Underoath reunited in 2015, but Davison was not featured in the new line-up, due to Gillespie coming back in the band.

In February 2015, Davison replaced Ryan "Legs" Leger in the band Every Time I Die.[9]

After Underoath officially disbanded in 2013, Davison returned to directing full time. His work can be viewed at his website www.isthmusstudio.com, or his vimeo channel at http://vimeo.com/danieldavison.
