~ Folk & Acoustic Roots Singer/Songwriter ~

A clear, honeyed voice and songs of hope, humor & resilience

New Album: Where the Light Lives

Release Date: 8.4.23

"Joy Zimmerman's follow up to her very fine 2021 album, The Canvas Before Us, is an even better representation of her considerable singing, songwriting, and violin playing skills. If I had to choose one adjective to describe this album, it would be 'uplifting.' Even when dealing with difficult topics, Joy finds a way to an affirming, positive place. It's difficult for me to pick which of these songs will get the most play on my radio show, as there are so many good ones." ~Bob McWilliams, Host of Trail Mix, Kansas Public Radio

"Joy Zimmerman has the knack for taking an audience on a musical journey with storytelling and music in a way few artists are able to do. With her latest album, Joy surpasses even herself. This album should be in every folk music lover's collection."  ~Dani Goodband, Lakeside Music
