*The Canvas Before Us*  coming this spring ~ click here to pre-order

In a world tossed and turned upside down, I was challenged and inspired to write a new crop of songs. Thus began a new recording project at Inside-Out Studio in Sparta, Illinois.

Why record and launch a new album during a pandemic and the shutdown of most live music? Because I believe in the power of music and connection. My fervent wish is that this new album, The Canvas Before Us, will bring you and others light in a time of darkness. 

Looking forward to sharing the new songs and the new sound with you!  ~Joy
