The perfect blend of American roots, gritty rock n' roll and vintage soul
Joshua Davis was raised in the folk tradition: the music, the social movements, the land. He writes songs that blend the roots of American music with gritty rock n' roll and vintage soul. Performing Songwriter Magazine called the result, "Some of the liveliest and most rocking roots music around.

For over 15 years Joshua has made his living sharing his songs, stories and knowledge across the US and Canada at festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses and dives - as a solo act, front man for roots ensemble "Steppin' In It", classic swing band "Shout Sister Shout", songwriter showcase band "The Starlight Six" and frequently as a workshop facilitator, presenter or instructor.

Davis rose to national attention in 2015 as a finalist on NBC's The Voice.

Song Samples: The Voice Blind Audition "I Shall Be Released"
Performing on piano and guitar, British singer-songwriter Callaghan combines sounds from Americana, folk and pop and a vocal that earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones. Her songs chronicle stories and moments from her own life and from others she knows or imagines.

In the Summer of 2010 Callaghan packed up her life in London and moved to Atlanta to work with one of her musical heroes - Grammy Nominee Shawn Mullins - who had heard her music through MySpace.

It was her very first house show tour - which stretched from coast-to-coast in 2013, a year after the release of her widely-acclaimed debut album, Life in Full Colour - that earned Callaghan a four-page spread in Billboard Magazine. The magazine credited her with "helping reshape the business of touring, if not music consumption entirely," and praised Callaghan for her strong vocals and do-it-yourself work ethic. The Huffington Post agreed, adding, "She's one of those performers whose genuine sweetness is transparent in her voice, and it shines through her writing."
