Joshua Davis lives and breathes Michigan music. Born in Marquette, raised in Detroit, and attending college at Michigan State University, Davis spent a good majority of his life living all throughout the mitten state.

As part of Steppin’ in it, a Michigan folk, roots, blues and jazz quartet based out of East Lansing, Davis spent 13 years performing locally each week at the infamous Green Door.

The musician recently auditioned on NBC’s vocal competition “The Voice,” was selected as a finalist, chose #TeamBlake and the rest of America soon witnessed this talented Michigan-made dude on their television screens.

WLNZ reporter Sarah Spohn recently sat down with Joshua to talk about his experiences with the local music scene and recent influx of national support he’s seen thanks to “The Voice.” Most “Voice” fans would probably be just as shocked to hear, like myself, that Davis went into the NBC studios without a single voice lesson.

If you’re familiar with the show, then you’ve seen Davis during his blind audition “I Shall Be Released,” and his battle round of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”

Now on #TeamAdam, Davis spoke about the vocal coaching, Los Angeles and gave a mad mitten shout out to all of his fellow Michigan musicians.
