What can we tell you about Joy Zimmerman? Well, Joy Zimmerman is a former social worker and a current touring folk & acoustic roots singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. When she isn’t touring she can be found at home with her wife (and a lot of plants). Home is in the Kansas City area. Joy Zimmerman has a new album out on the 4th of August called ‘Where the Light Lives‘ from which today’s Bruce Springsteen cover is taken. It’s a song that she felt should be made available early, and in particular in Pride month.
Joy Zimmerman told Americana UK that: “I recorded this compelling version of ‘If I Should Fall Behind’ by Bruce Springsteen to celebrate LGBTQ love and all love. The heart of this song is its beautiful simplicity — the promise of steadfast love no matter what the road brings. To reflect that same deep promise my wife and I share, I invited Katie Dahl to sing ‘If I Should Fall Behind’ with me as a duet. Katie and I recorded our parts three states away, but our voices blend in this tribute to devotion and love.”
