2015 was like a dream for Joshua Davis. From February through May, the Michigan singer-songwriter, best known in Lansing as a member of Steppin' In It, lived between Traverse City and Los Angeles, appearing each week on NBC's "The Voice." Making it to the final three contestants, Davis placed numerous songs in iTunes top 10 and more impressively, broke barriers by becoming the first artist in eight seasons of “The Voice” to perform an original song. He had a large back catalogue to choose from too, with over fifteen years’ worth of writing, recording and touring from out of northern Michigan. He bonded with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, his coach on the show. He performed with Sheryl Crow. After making it all the way to the show's finale, Joshua Davis is back where he feels most comfortable – the road. The national spotlight has definitely raised Davis’ profile, but his music remains as true and as earnest as when he started playing live over a decade and a half ago.
"I'm so excited to get back to the East Coast,” Joshua said. “It's been quite a few years since I've been out there and this will be the first time since “The Voice”. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with longtime friends and meeting new fans."
Joshua Davis is a singer-songwriter raised in the folk tradition writing songs that blend the roots of American music with gritty rock n' roll and vintage soul. No newcomer, for over 15 years Joshua has made his living sharing his songs, stories and knowledge across the US and Canada at festivals, concert halls and coffeehouses. Dubbed, "the Michigan version of the Great American Songscape" (Chris Reitz, Elderly Instruments), his catalog is a seamless snapshot of American past and present.
