Recorded at the end of May 2021 with long-time collaborators Adam Osmianski on drums and Henrik Jensen on double bass, her new third album, entitled ‘Peaceful Place’, features Joy’s compositions reflecting on a turbulent and difficult year.

Joy writes: “Moving through the pandemic I felt there were no words I could sing to capture the grief and sense of loss that I and other people I know had experienced. Therefore I decided to compose an album with no vocals at all using my other instrument and first love, the piano.”

The release of this album is generously supported by the Help Musicians Do It Differently Fund.

‘Evocative, completely immersive, and unapologetically beautiful.’
Mike Gates, UK Vibe ★★★★★

‘Stylish maturity of composition and playing.’
Tony Benjamin, Jazzwise ★★★★ (Editor’s Choice)

‘Sparkling new album’.
Jez Nelson, Jazz FM

'Compelling melodies and an introspective north European feel; delicate, intimate - no notes are wasted in its pared-back sound’.
John Bungey, London Jazz News
