Josh Hoyer is the 40-year-old father of two from Lincoln, Nebraska who sang the Chi-Lites song “Oh, Girl” for his Blind Audition on The Voice, Season 12. He landed a spot on Team Blake but the soul singer painfully lost during the Knockout Round when he and TSoul sang the Wilson Pickett song “In the Midnight Hour.”
After his elimination on The Voice in March 2017, Josh Hoyer went on a European tour with his band Soul Colossal. Together they played 27 shows in 32 days in seven countries. Now back in the U.S., Hoyer reports that the audiences in Germany and France “were a little more reserved” than the crowds in Spain that “went wild, dancing, clapping and shouting.” The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
