David Greer
In the world of business, from marketing to publishing, and now in music and film, David Greer believes it all starts with a story.

For more than 30 years, David has harnessed the creative tools of the day to tell the stories of clients and causes -- in print, online, through images, video, film and song.

His use of creative messages to achieve concrete business goals has garnered him a stellar reputation in marketing and media, while newer endeavors in the music and film industries have brought those mediums to the art and craft of his storytelling.

Extending his work into new mediums, David recently ventured into the world of filmmaking. David's first screenplay was a quarterfinalist in the 2007 Slamdance Screenplay Competition, chosen from more than 2,200 screenplays. David's first short film, produced and shot on location, was accepted into the Hollywood Film Festival.

He recently garnered national attention with the screening of his documentary short film on the All Are Our Heroes project at the 2010 International Family Film Festival in Hollywood, a festival launched to educate, cultivate and elevate the family film genre. The film also made it into the finals of the Newport Beach Film Festival.

David's first song for The Heroes Project, All Are Our Heroes, raised thousands of dollars in donations for Relay for Life and cancer research. This year he wrote a new song, We Light A Candle, to send a message of hope and encouragement to those living with cancer. With the song he hopes to inspire thousands of Relay for Life participants to break the Guinness World Record for "lit candles in a single venue" and raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society.

David began his career in communications in printing and magazine production with Foote & Davies, a division of McCall Magazine and Publishing, and assisted in the production of publications such as Georgia Trend, Atlanta Magazine, Atlanta Business Chronicle, The Robb Report and many more.

An entrepreneur at heart, David launched his own marketing and media company in 1996, Tillman Allen Greer, enabling him to combine his technical knowledge with problem solving and creative applications in the marketing arena. A believer in vision with a keen focus on a quality outcome, David is known for balancing practical business sense with creative endeavors.

Tillman Allen Greer has provided strategic marketing services, including economic development, business development, public relations, advertising and creative design, video production, Web site development and collateral production to key organizations in the metro Atlanta area and throughout the state for more than a decade. The firm has produced award-winning work for Gwinnett Technical College, Gwinnett County Public Schools, the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, Discovery Point Child Development Centers, the Gwinnett Center and the The Brand Banking Company. David is the creator of the now famous Gwinnett County development campaign Success Lives Here.

In the media realm, David has launched several award-winning publications. He is the founder and publisher of both Gwinnett Magazine, the area's definitive lifestyle and business publication, and the Gwinnett Business Journal.


Lee Davis
Lee Davis doesn’t just make music, he lives and breathes it. Along the way his talents as a gifted musician, producer, composer, songwriter and author have awed audiences across the country.

Davis’ musical adventure began at an early age. The native of North Georgia was immersed in music from an early age by his mother, a classically trained vocalist. As a seven-year-old he was already playing piano for his father’s church congregations and, having saved money from delivering newspapers, he bought his first guitar and tape recorder just a few years later.

Davis was still a teenager when he began collaborating with bandleader Mark Garrison. The pair wrote, recorded and played music together at club dates and concerts throughout the Southeast for many years. He also played in a variety of other bands in his early 20s, while continuing to hone his skills as a classical pianist and composer.

Since then Lee has played piano for numerous local and national artists, including Jan Smith, Corey Smith, Ty Herndon, Thompson Square, Linda Davis, Steve Cropper, Joe Diffie, Mark Collie, Billy Dean, as well as scores of other popular artists.

Eventually in 1986, Davis opened his own recording studio, Lee Davis Studios, in the quaint Southern town of Maysville, Ga. He had toured all over the country, but it was time to settle down.

Since opening Lee Davis Studios, he has produced more than 50 independent albums, by such varied artists as Craig Collins, CMT’s Music City Madness winner Kurt Thomas, Joe Olds, Mercy Tree, The Lord’s Messengers, The Foxfire Boys, world-renowned vocal coach Jan Smith and independent ”phenom” Corey Smith.

Dividing his time as producer and composer, Lee has also written and produced original compositions for MTV and other television programs. A long-time member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, he has received numerous songwriter awards and recorded three albums of his own piano compositions. His first album, Moments in Time, and his latest album, Falling, which was released in June 2008, are both currently available for purchase. Lee Davis’s label, Rogue Records, had six top 100 singles on several national, independent charts,

In addition to his composing work, Davis wrote his 1999 book Keyboard Primer (published by Watch and Learn) and appeared in an accompanying DVD.
