Joy Zimmerman & Danielle Ate the Sandwich in The Gospel Lounge
Under 21 with Guardian
A folk & acoustic roots singer/songwriter who cultivates joy with a rich voice of honey, Joy Zimmerman believes in the power of music and community. At home on guitar and violin, Joy’s most recent album, The Canvas Before Us, debuted at #8 and her single in March, Women Who Walked on Water reached #4 on the FAI Folk Charts. A touring musician based in Kansas City, Joy’s performances and music have been described as “combining consummate instrumental skill with moving lyrics...and she does it with wonderful creativity, beauty, and her clear, ringing, passionate voice."
