Say My Name
Say My Name, the latest album by indie singer~songwriter Joy Zimmerman, weaves compelling vocals, rich instrumentation, and inventive songwriting. Its songs tell of gratitude, regret, hope and survival. The title track is a tribute to Camille Claudel, a 19th century French sculptor whose genius was silenced when she was committed to a mental institution. In other chapters, a typewriter delivers a break-up letter, jazz emboldens a profession of love, and a sweet bird assures the waking world. Lose—or find—yourself within these diverse tales.
Co-produced by Joy Zimmerman and guitar wizard Jimmy Dykes, Say My Name was skillfully recorded, mixed, and mastered by Duane Trower at Weights and Measures Soundlab in Kansas City. James Albright, Rod Lincoln, Gary Helm, Everett Freeman, Jr., Christine Broxterman, Ray DeMarchi, Ryan Dugan, Cindy Egger, and Joe Miquelon also contributed stellar tracks.
