It wasn’t until 2016 when the two came together and began to write songs that would become that would become the foundation of their currents singles, including the streaming hits “Astrovan” “Sheep, and ”Silver Lining."
Hearing Mt. Joy for the first time reminded me of the first time I heard August and Everything After by Counting Crows. Like the Crows on their debut, Mt. Joy bring together elements of old school classic rock and Americana with well crafted songs that drip with nostalgia, and lots of well placed sing along moments. Quinn is an emotionally powerful singer whose phrasing is filled with yearning and longing yet offering plenty of redemption.
Look for their debut full length on Dualtone Records in early Winter.
