New Album: Where the Light Lives 

Release date: 8.4.23

Joy Zimmerman’s superpower is her ability to find light within the cracks. This brilliance is illuminated on her lush new album, WHERE THE LIGHT LIVES. Joy’s honeyed vocals invite the listener into complex stories of immigration, divorce, identity, and perseverance. Her uplifting album embodies community with its seventeen musicians, including Katie Dahl, Jeff Freling and Erin McGrane (Victor & Penny), and Danielle Anderson (Danielle Ate the Sandwich).
