American artist Jonathan Howsmon Davis, sometimes nicknamed 'JD' or 'JDevil', is the lead singer for Korn, the American nu metal band.

Jonathan Davis had a horrific and brutal background, which inspired the dark themes of torture and emotional trauma underlying the music he produced. Jonathan Davis's first project, apart from his work as part of the band, was the soundtrack and score album for 'Queen of the Damned,' which he co-wrote and produced with Richard Gibbs in 2000 and 2001.

In 2007, he started a new project titled Jonathan Davis and the SFA and kept experimenting with musical genres. He worked well in pop and rock music but at the same time also claimed that there was considerable competition concerning the rock genre music background. The suffering this frontman bore or dealt with is primarily seen in his songs. Jonathan Davis's mother, Holly Chavez, was a renowned actress and performer, while his father, Rick Davis played keyboards for Frank Zappa and Buck Owens. When his parents split, he was three years old, and his father and stepmother reared him in Bakersfield. As a child, Jonathan Davis experienced severe asthma attacks. Between the ages of three and ten, asthma prompted him to spend several months in the hospital, and when Jonathan Davis was five years old, he narrowly avoided a fatal asthma attack. Sumerian, Immortal, Epic Virgin, Roadrunner, Prospect Park, eOne, and Dim Mak are some of the labels with which Jonathan Davis has worked along. 'Korn' (1994), 'Life Is Peachy' (1996), 'Follow the Leader' (1998), 'Issues' (1999), 'Untouchables' (2002), 'Take a Look in the Mirror' (2003), 'See You on the Other Side' (2005), and many others are the notable work of Jonathan Davis. Jonathan Davis's quotes are no doubt inspirational and yet underrated.
