Biography

Davis's music is steeped in ragtime blues, sweet jazz, real country and cajun, and he blends these traditions with his love for gritty rock n' roll and old soul. The result is what Performing Songwriter Magazine calls, "Some of the liveliest and most rocking roots music around".

Joshua travels across the country playing at concert halls, old theatres, festivals, clubs, dives, classrooms and parks. He's released a number of albums, including his 2005 solo effort, "Fool Rooster", which earned the album of the year slot from "Progressive Torch and Twang", a cult favorite Americana show on WDBM, and his second solo record, Magnolia Belles. He's released four albums with roots-rocking quartet Steppin' In It, one album of jazz standards with Shout Sister Shout, and has appeared on too many albums to count.

Davis has appeared on NPR's nationally syndicated Mountain Stage and Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour as well as Public Television, Backstage Pass. He's played prestigious festivals like Telluride Bluegrass in Colorado and Suwannee Springfest in Florida, not to mention every festival Michigan, his home state, has to offer.

Joshua has recently teamed up with fair trade organization On the Ground for a life-changing journey to the Palestinian West Bank which culminated in a record about his travels. A Miracle of Birds is his most personal expression yet.
