Though the term “singer-songwriter” is liberally used these days, that description aptly fits The Voice’s Madi Davis, who Pharrell accurately said is an “artist” and “not just some contestant on this show.”
Davis put her stamp on The Voice right from the jump thanks to her performance of the Carole King classic “It’s Too Late.” She advanced through the Battle Rounds after her “Riptide” duet with Sydney Rhame, and unfortunately that performance was montaged. Nevertheless, Davis’ discerning music taste was evident once again during her first rate Knockouts performance of the Joni Mitchell staple “A Case of You.”
Mitchell and King are two of music’s brightest beacons, and their passion for songwriting as well as following their respective visions are qualities that one would assume inspires Davis. During the interview, I asked Davis about the aforementioned artists and her own journey on The Voice.
