E. Davis hails from Reno, Nevada. He started writing songs on his keyboard and acoustic guitar in his bedroom in high school around 1984-1985 after being baptized in the waters of Eucalyptus Records and Mirabelli's, records stores that are now relics of The Biggest Little City in the World.
First assembling cassette tapes at The Club and Square Dorks, he finally settled on the name Catharsis and made five "albums" (on cassettes) in the 90's. He also dabbled in side projects under the names of Caligula and Blood.
After taking a short break from playing and writing, he decided to so again in the late 90's and early 00's and started his one-person musical project, Striking Ghosts. He played his first ever solo show at the Un-Urban Cafe in Santa Monica in July of 2001. To date, Striking Ghosts has released 8 studio albums and 8 EPs as well as 8 non-album singles. Also available is OCTAGON (a B-sides compilation), VIOLATOR (a Depeche Mode covers album) and "Halloween" (originally by John Carpenter).
