Josi Davis is an inventive musician whose approach to songwriting defies expectations. Josi composes each new expression of lyric and sound by crafting a memorable narrative and shaping its setting in a musical style that best supports the story.

"We embrace each composition as it comes to us, understanding and honoring that we will create a special world for that song. When "Calling" took form, we thought to craft it in the beautiful, soulful pop style of 1970’s Northern Soul. That was our intuition and I’m glad we did because, man, this grooves! This is a roll-the-top-down-and-cruise kind of record!"

"Calling" is the second single to come from Davis’ collaboration with legendary producer, Louis Anthony deLise. deLise’s credits include a Billboard Number One with Patti LaBelle, and hits with William DeVaughn and cult dance club favorite, John Gibbs.

Josi’s rich dramatic alto voice serves her well as she delivers each original musical micro-drama with a respect and espressivo that is uncommon in today’s landscape of musical predictability.

"Josi Davis’ voice can exhibit Joni Mitchell’s smoky fragility, Phoebe Snow’s full bodied barroom belt, and Ann Wilson’s rock-and-roll wail. Occasionally, they come out all at once…"
– Mary Jane Fine, Grace Magazine

"…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
