“ When I heard that Joy was going back to her roots in the Northeast of England, and recording with a traditional English brass band, I expected something very English and nostalgic . . . which this album is. But it’s not only that; it’s also surprisingly contemporary, or rather, timeless. As in timelessly beautiful songs, singing, and arrangements. “
"Joy spellbound the audience at Bar LunÁtico, fronting a stellar New York City brass ensemble. They played the entire record ~ an ambitious undertaking which was rendered impeccably. The title track is simply unstoppable. We made them play it twice."
