Joy Conaway is an indie artist from Atlanta and “A Tale of Joy & Sorrow” is her debut EP. The gorgeous four-track project is shrouded in romantic acoustic guitar folk melodies and honest lyrics. Vocally, Conaway does just the right amount of showing off, sliding easily into unexpected smooth falsettos and riffs. There isn’t a crummy track on the EP—each song draws you in, holds your attention, and smothers you in eskimo kisses.
“A Tale of Joy & Sorrow” is a journey of love, fear, hope and light. I love creating stories through the music I sing, and I believe that there is a story in each song for all of us! I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be working the Gigabots (production duo, Douglas Whatley & Prem Midha). It’s been a little over a year since we started working together, and it’s been nothing but music, magic and laughter.“ Conaway tells AFROPUNK.
