Joy Williams, my new addiction. I first heard Speaking A Dead Language on Grey’s Anatomy and it’s one of those songs that is intrinsically sad. Sometimes you just need to hear something like this, because it’s real, when a lot of music isn’t.
Joy Williams is most well known for being one half of The Civil Wars. Songs From This/Songs From That are a double extended play that go together as a single album and was one of the last she released as a solo artist. This concept has always been something that’s intrigued me, and you can tell that her style is evolving throughout the whole album. Sunny Day is possibly one of her most commercially successful releases, and shows a happy-go-lucky side to Joy Williams.
Hopefully Joy Williams won’t leave her solo career here and we’ll see a lot more of her own creations soon!
