LISTEN TO JOY'S LATEST WORK
After a successful run releasing her last record, “Midnight,” where Joy found herself on the 2019 first-round GRAMMY ballot, selling out shows at the iconic Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, and featured in renowned publications such as LA Weekly, she eventually packed her bags and moved home during the pandemic, leaving her the space to rediscover herself and revisit her sound.
Alone with her thoughts in her childhood bedroom, Joy spent hours perfecting her craft composing for film and producing music with her upcoming EP “Rainy Sunday” being her first-ever, self-produced EP.
“Coming back and creating in the Pacific Northwest was a full-circle moment for me,” Autumn shares. “I used to write songs in my childhood bedroom, on that very same piano, as a kid, but this time I was returning with so much more wisdom and experience. After spending years in a music industry full of male producers, seemingly holding the key to my sound, I knew I needed to take my songs into my own hands. I’ve always wanted to produce and the pandemic gave me the time and space to make that lifelong dream a reality. I feel more in-control of my music career and destiny than ever before.”
The Otherside,” much like the rest of her EP “Rainy Sunday,” is a warm, inviting, introspective, and honest rainy-day bedroom-pop song with a folksy flair living in the same world as Taylor Swift’s “Folklore” or Phoebe Bridger’s “Punisher.” Inspired by the soundscape of her hometown Olympia, Washington, Joy leans into a communion with nature and her roots.
Grab your coziest blanket, favorite fall candle, and a warm cup of tea to enjoy this new Joy Autumn release, with more thoughtful rainy day music ahead.
