JOY. ‘Great Southern Nights’ @ Waywards

JOY. announces a one-off special show in Sydney. The singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist is back with two singles ‘Anime’ & ‘Waterfalls’

JOY has been busy creating her project, her latest feature sings and produces on the closing track ‘SELFISH’ off the The Kid Laroi’s new album.

JOY. gave the first taste of the EP and her new music in November of 2017 with the triple j favourite ‘Smoke Too Much’ which has accumulated over 3 Million streams to date and also gained support from Zane Lowe on Beats 1. In her relatively short run, the ambitious multi-hyphenate has graduated from solo bedroom recordings, including her debut single ‘Captured’, to her acclaimed debut EP, ODE, which landed #1 on the iTunes electronic charts in mid-2015 and has been streamed over 5 million times to date.

Additionally, JOY. has garnered strong support from influential tastemakers by the likes of Nylon magazine, which proclaimed, “JOY. could be Australia’s next great pop export”, and Beats1 creative center Zane Lowe, who earmarked JOY. as ‘One to Watch’ at 2015’s Beats Sound Symposium in Sydney.
Great Southern Nights is a new event to kick-start the recovery of the live music industry – featuring 1000 COVID safe gigs across Sydney and regional NSW, throughout November 2020 (Australian Music Month). Great Southern Nights is a NSW Government initiative, delivered by Destination NSW in partnership with ARIA. For more information, please visit greatsouthernnights.com.au
