Josi Davis is an award-winning songwriter, vocalist and dynamic multi-instrumentalist originally hailing from the D.C./Baltimore area where she began performing at an early age, finding outlets for her wild theatrical nature and imaginary characters in anything from family pageants to an appearance as a young Puck at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre. Her studies in music and theater were exceptional and intense, greatly influencing her art, along with some entertaining but questionable life choices and many a reality check. In short, Josi Davis took the hard road. Her one constant: Songwriting.
…a powerful and distinctive vocalist and a songwriter whose appreciation for all manners of musical styles is evident in her work. Some call Davis a practitioner of “nouveau cabaret,” and that certainly provides a sonic indicator.
– Rick Koster, The Day
Josi’s perception of the world and her experiences, her fun-loving and genuinely heart-felt disposition, her fondness for mischief and a series of inevitable misadventures evolved into a rivetingly intimate and continuously ripening show of songs and (mostly) true stories called The Evolution of Love. The soundtrack was released in 2013 to great acclaim as a live in-studio album of original work, nominated “Best Album” in the 2014 Connecticut Music Awards, and lauded as “one of the most powerful live experiences of the season.”
