Josi Davis, LIVE at the BEE!

  • Bee and Thistle Inn 100 Lyme Street Old Lyme, CT, 06371 United States (map)

“[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…” (Grace Magazine)

Anyone who has seen Josi in action has experienced how she captures a room and how we, as its momentary inhabitants, come willfully along on a playful journey of well-crafted and memorable tunes.  Humor, compassion and a dynamic and powerful voice are the root of her writing and her delivery.

Davis second album Love/Rain was released this March, a monumental collection of six new songs, written and recorded in collaboration with producer, arranger and composer Louis Anthony deLise, whose credits include a Billboard #1 with Patti LaBelle, and hits with William DeVaughn and cult dance club favorite, John Gibbs.

“The songs are jazz-infused, cinematic, theatrical … Listening to them is like an event, or like watching a film. The songs are simply captivating… the vocals from Davis are just superb. They are heartfelt and expressive; a little bit Liza Minelli and a little Barbra Streisand. She’s not just singing, she’s telling a story.” – (Sound Waves 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)
