Joy Williams – Front Porch

She has a very beautiful voice. One of the most beautiful voices I have heard .The moment hit the play button on this, I was captivated.

Joy Williams is a singer-songwriter from Santa Cruz, CA who now lovingly calls Nashville, TN home.

Formerly of four-time Grammy Award-winning Folk, Country and Americana duo The Civil Wars, Joy recently recorded her forthcoming solo album, Front Porch, produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids.

Following the recent birth of her second child, Joy is steadily performing new music from Front Porch live in advance of the album’s release on May 3rd.

Joy recently released visuals to the title track, “Front Porch”, and it is a masterpiece. It refers to a point in time in America’s history when it was not cool for a black man to be seen with a white woman vice versa. The very emotional love video narrates the story of how two individuals who love themselves missed out of having a life together just because they were of different color and could not publicly express their love for each other due to the stigma. Racism and tribalism prevents a lot of love stories from blossoming .. Shout out to couples who went through this and made it to the finish line together.
