a beacon of enlightenment that could only come from embracing life, taking the good with the bad; this ten-song overture invites us listeners to find our own path to joy.
While 'Joy’All' pulls from a bounty of sonic inspiration–from soul to 90’s R&B, as well as country and classic singer-songwriter records, the album’s rich and intimate, live sound is the hallmark of legendary producer, Dave Cobb.
“I started writing some of these songs on the road, pre-pandemic... and then put them aside as the world shut down, and then from my home in Nashville in early 2021, I joined a week-long virtual songwriting workshop with a handful of amazing artists, hosted by Beck. The challenge was to write one song every day for seven days, with guidelines from Beck. The guidelines would be prompts like ‘write a song with 1-4-5 chord progression,’ ‘write a song with only cliches,’ or ‘write in free form style.’ The first song I submitted to the group was ‘Puppy and a Truck.’” As the days progressed, the assignments kept coming in and Jenny ended up writing a good portion of 'Joy’All'.
