"Joy has a wonderfully unique way of connecting to her audience that I have seen no other performer do...she engages every audience and wraps everyone in a velvet blanket of beautiful music. "
~Peggy Kelly, Open Range Concert Series
"As a songwriter, Joy Zimmerman is equally comfortable tackling styles from bluegrass, folk and blues to pop, rock and country-as well as more esoteric genres ranging from disco to klezmer...but still makes each song her own."
~Fett, Independent producer/engineer, Azalea Music Group, Nashville
"To listen to Joy play and sing, to be carried along through her ordinary/wondrous journey, and to hear echos of your own in it...There's so much about her work that resonates with me at a level even deeper that I can articulate."
~Erika Marksbury, M.Div.
