Music that plucks all of the right heartstrings, soars on the updrafts, and plumbs the depths of the human experience
Joshua Davis

Over the past twenty years, Michigan-based Joshua Davis has honed an impressive range of skills – songwriter, bandleader, guitarist, and vocalist among them – in the most honest possible fashion: night after night, song after song, show after show Davis simply delivered every performance as though his life depended on it. Investing himself in the American musical diaspora, he has explored the common thread connecting folk, blues, jazz, ragtime, and country forms – discovering his personal perspective as a composer in the process. “The music that moves me is imperfect, honest and raw.” Joshua explains, “Those qualities are what turned me on to Delta blues, to punk rock, to old soul, and traditional music from all over the globe. It’s all about feel. It’s ragged but right.” His versatility and ravenous musical curiosity has resulted in a divergent and fervent output. Joshua was a finalist on Season 8 of NBC’s “The Voice,” where he was the first contestant to sing an original song on the show.

Joshua will be joined by his band: bassist Zak Bunce, drummer Michael Shimmin, and multi-instrumentalist Drew Howard on pedal steel and electric guitar.
