Description

Produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, tried and true Michigan musician Joshua Davis' new album The Way Back Home is his 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, MI brings into view the backdrop of Davis' latest works.

The Way Back Home
follows a series of singular recordings (Fool Rooster, Magnolia Belles, A Miracle of Birds) by the prolific songwriter who has shared the stage with a "Who's Who" of American folk music icons such as Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Greg Brown, and Abigail Washburn. Recorded in East Lansing, MI by legendary engineer Glenn Brown, The Way Back Home highlights Davis' longtime collaboration with Jack White's bassist Dominic John Davis, pianist Mike Lynch (Willie Nelson, Leon Russell), and drummer Mike Shimmin (The Olllam). Davis entered the recording sessions for The Way Back Home with a well-oiled machine of a voice primed for the collaboration with Berlin. His rough-n-tumble grit mixes with an undeniable Midwesterner's charm for a soaring vocal performance on The Way Back Home. With his voice taking center stage, Davis' signature lyricism and deft acoustic guitar work is backed by a trio of Michigan's finest musicians.

"The Way Back Home is a very personal look at where I've been and who I've become," says Davis. "In my 20's, I felt like a disconnected ghost going town to town performing every night, and it just wasn't a healthy life. I've learned many valuable lessons in how to be a better person, husband and father. Home grows and changes with or without you. If you don't pull it together, it'll leave you behind. I feel very reassured to have found stable ground in life and in a career that isn't necessarily filled with security. The album takes listeners through my own trials and tribulations."
