Joy Clark

Joy Clark is a New Orleans singer-songwriter, lyrical guitarist and composer who creates soulful original compositions that celebrate peace and the undeniable power of love. Her intricate rhythms and warm melodies reveal a sweet vulnerability that enchants her audiences around the world. Like so many other artists in New Orleans, Joy’s first stage was in church. Growing up the daughter of a minister, she learned to create an atmosphere ripe for an emotional experience. So it’s no wonder she believes music is her ministry and intimacy is her superpower.

Joy signed a recording contract with Righteous Babe Records and her first two singles were released on October 5 2023, Guest, and November 16 2023, Gumbo Christmas. The song “Guest” features piano and keys by Lisa Coleman of Wendy and Lisa (Prince Revolution Band). Gumbo Christmas is a tribute to her recently departed grandmother's holiday celebration. Joy's latest album will be released in the early summer of 2024 and she will be touring solo and with her band to support the record.

Joy toured with Allison Russell and Brandi Carlile in 2022, as well as opened for The Indigo Girls, Jackie Venson, and Ruthie Foster among others. Joy continues to tour with Allison Russell in 2024 as a guitarist and vocalist as well as her own tours building audiences wherever she goes. Joy continues to tour with Allison and was part of Allison’s The Returner album recognized with a Grammy win in 2023.
