Joy Williams “When Does A Heart Move On?” – Listen

It’s tempting, of course, to hear this song as part of an on-going exchange of bruised emotions between Joy Williams and her ex-partner in singing John Paul White.  It’s probably just a coincidence though.  Probably.  Even if it isn’t a CSN-like coded message aimed at a particular bandmate ‘When Does a Heart Move on ?‘ is undeniably beautiful in a frail and tenuous way.  It comes from the album  ‘Front Porch‘, which will be out via Sensibility/Thirty Tigers on May 3rd.

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?
