Graham Davies received his early musical training at Winchester Cathedral where he assisted and was a pupil of Graham Matthews and Martin Neary.

Graham has held a number of important church appointments including Director of Music at Malvern Priory and Deputy Organist at Bath Abbey in 1994 where for seven years he was accompanist for the Abbey Girls' Choir. In 2005 Graham was appointed to All Saints' Clifton, in Bristol where he developed the music within an Anglo Catholic tradition, widening the repertoire and recruiting many new members to the choir. From 2005 to 2008 he was a regular accompanist for the Wells Cathedral Voluntary Choir. At this time he finished his business career to devote all his time to music, moving to High Wycombe as Director of Music at All Saints' Church.

As a recitalist, Graham has given many concerts in churches and cathedrals throughout the UK including St. Paul's Cathedral London, also in Switzerland and Chicago. He has benefitted from organ studies and master classes with internationally renowned teachers including Margaret Phillips, Catherine Ennis and Daniel Moult.

Graham is Deputy Director of Music at Pinner Parish Church.
