After Motown, Davis was hired by Universal Pictures to produce, score, and consult for films like "Animal House," "Car Wash," Richard Pryor's "Bustin' Loose" & "Which Way is Up," as well as Cheech & Chong's - "Next Movie."
At the same time, he was hired by Mo Ostin to head up A&R for Warner Brothers Records. There, he consulted on numerous projects for Ostin and Lenny Waronker, producing artists like Natalie Cole, Sly & The Family Stone, and the late George Harrison of the Beatles for his Dark Horse Record Company.
Recently Davis has taken an active role as CEO of Whitsett Hill Films. He oversees the company's key creative relationships with artists like Smokey Robinson, manages the distribution relationship with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and coordinates the company's strategic alliances with Paradigm Talent Agency.
