Joy Williams “Canary” – Listen

You may have been wondering what’s happened to Joy Williams, the other half of the Civil Wars.  Well, she had her second baby and, whilst she was getting on with that there was also the small subject of recording a new album.  It – the album that is – is called ‘Front Porch‘ and is due to be released  next year.   Joy Williams called on the services of Milk Carton Kid Kenneth Pattengale as producer, and the result is beautifully crisp and uncluttered music – with Joy Williams hitting high notes exquisitely, as demonstrated on ‘Canary‘.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
