Maybe it is due to her Farfisa electric organ in the song, “Don’t Wake the Lion”, but Joy’s music is a unique mixture of psychedelic melodies of today tied in with retro 1960’s “Psychedelic Era” pop music. The late 60’s brought upon a music era unlike no other time in history. It was a period when music was at a brink of incredible change and it brought about a nation of “togetherness”. Music from artists like, Sweetwater, The Chocolate Watch Band, Fifty Foot Hose, The Mamas & The Papas, and of course The Beatles were most popular of the time. Some of Joy’s direct influences for her music are unmistakable with her inspiration by artists like The Zombies, The Beatles, The Association, Shirley Bassey, & Donovan.
