Joy Williams VENUS new album is available now #JoyWilliams #O2O

Disclosure:  I participated in the Joy Williams Venus album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.

Joy Williams was part of the four-time Grammy-winning folk-rock duo The Civil Wars. If you have followed her, you knew something was not right when they went on hiatus in 2014 and it just dragged on until they finally broke up in the late summer of 2014. Joy was a mystery until now....she is out with a new solo album VENUS and you hear her true stories as a musician, a mama and an artist. Joy shares her honest stories about pain and change and continuing to forge on through the difficulties until she reached the light.

The 11 tracks on VENUS reveals many of the mysteries. Through her music she honestly shares her stories and her pain through beautiful music. She had many challenges over the past few years. It shows how she was able to get to a beautiful place but how she had to walk in the dark for miles to get there. Joy thinks of it as a "break-through" album. She looks different too....I love her new hair color. You can feel her sense of new found freedom...she made a big change and moved to California with her family. 

You can find Joy's new music right now via the following:

You can follow Joy Williams on her official website here and keep up with the latest scoop on her life and her music. You can follow Joy Williams on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram  and YouTube

I love hearing her music and this new solo album was so sweet...a bit sad but sweet to know that she is in a good place now. Her music is easy to listen to and really resonates with me as a busy mom trying to keep it all together between work, family and my own needs.  Take a listen to one of my favorite tracks from VENUS above called "Woman." You can pick it up on iTunes or Amazon right now. Let me know what you think.
