Love Charmed Life!
Joy and Trent did a beautiful job on this song! So excited for them that it was on Grey's Anatomy. Love the video, too!!
A Wonderful and "Charmed" Playlist
Starting at age 17, Joy Williams signed a recording contract with the company Reunion Records. Since then she has released three albums along with multiple singles in the Christian music genera. In 2006, Joy signed a publishing contract as a top line songwriter at Warner/Chappell Music. She has since then written and co-written quite a few songs for other developing and established artists and producers. Recently, she and her husband have started their own recording company called Sensibility Music, with Joy Williams being the flagship artist. And now, after over 3 years from the release of her last album Genesis, she has released a new EP named One of Those Days featuring four brand new songs written and co-written by Joy Williams. The four songs on her EP are quite different in style compared to her previous albums. I would classify these songs in the Pop/Indie/Alternative genera. The lyrics, while not as direct in expressing her Christian faith as in her previous albums, still allude to her faith through some subtle lines. For example, from the song Charmed Life, there’s a line that says: “It’s plain to see what we got is color in a world of black and white. Don’t even let it fool you. We got everything we need.” The first song, One of Those Days is surprisingly catchy and fun with an upbeat rhythm even though the song talks about having one of those bad days. The second song on the list, What Can I do (But Love You), is, (as you’ve probably guessed from the title), a love song. It has a sort of Bluesy swing feel to it and is a very pleasant song to listen to. The third song, Charmed Life, which is my favorite song on this EP, has a very similar feel to a few of Erin McCarley’s songs, specifically the song Love, Save the Empty. The lyrics of Charmed Life are a little similar to the lyrics in her song Stay on the album Genesis. For example, from her song Stay it says: “Stay, Just Stay, You're where you're meant to be…” and from Charmed Life: “Stay where you are. Open up your eyes to what’s already there.” What I like about this song is its uniqueness and simplicity in how it sounds, with some electronic vibe in the background and an almost eerie feeling with the piano trills. When the song gets into the chorus, it really does sound charming in a fantasy sort of way. The last song on this playlist, I’m Gonna Break Your Heart, tells about a situation where you know you need to confess something to the one you love but at the same time you know that if you do tell what you did, you’d break that person’s heart. The song is a quiet and contemplative piece and I think is a fitting way to end this excellent EP. Overall, this set of four songs is a solid beginning in a new chapter of Joy Williams’ musical career. Although a part of me will miss her old style, I feel that her new music brings a fresh and original taste to the music scene.
