Singer|Songwriter Joy Zimmerman brings dynamic vocals, inventive songwriting, and multiple instruments to her engaging performances. She performs solo, in a duo with guitarist Jimmy Dykes, and with a full band.? Her eclectic music began with violin lessons before kindergarten, evolved with guitar lessons decades later, and springs from plenty of soulful moments in between.
Her songwriting awards include American Songwriter Lyric Contest Honorable Mention and five Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase wins. She has five albums of original music--two recorded and co-produced with Jimmy Dykes in Kansas City at Weights and Measures Soundlab and three recorded and produced by Fett in Nashville at Azalea Studios.
"To listen to Joy play and sing, is to be carried along through her ordinary/wondrous journey, and to hear echos of your own in it..." ~Erika Marksbury
