Joy''s latest album "As in the Wilderness" was recorded with producer Martin Carrillo (Now It''s Overhead, Kari Newhouse)at Heardrum Stduios and Brian Frederick at Halcion Studios. Of the new album Joy says, "This album pushed me to new levels musically and personally. When I hear the album I almost get teary-eyed because Martin and Brian have helped me finally capture the sound I have searching for for years.
This album is an intensely personal release of pain of my past. I was very concerned, though, about whether putting this album out into the world would be just putting out more pain. But I realized that the process of writing, recording and performing these songs allowed me to let got of that insane pain to become the happy person I always was. So, it is my sincerest hope that the album can inspire others to recognize and let go of their pain as well, to be the amazing people they are."
