Joshua Davis to perform in Curtis
CURTIS — The Erickson Center for the Arts in Curtis welcomes Joshua Davis to its stage at 7 p.m. Sept. 14.
A tried and true Michigan musician,Joshua Davis’s album “The Way Back Home” is his latest full-length studio album and first since his 2015 appearances as a Top 3 finalist on NBC’s “The Voice” (season 8). The 11 original Americana songs featured on “The Way Back Home” reflect an honest, hardworking family man scribing scenes of the cycle of life through dark, broken, hopeful, and triumphant times. An upbringing that occupied the urban landscapes of Detroit while spending summers in the wilderness on the southern tip of Lake Superior in Marquette brings into view the backdrop of Davis’ latest works.
