Joy Williams Band Bio
  • Every Moment: The Best of Joy Williams
  • By Suprise
  • Joy Williams
  • Genesis


People will be hard pressed to see a rerun in the life of Joy Williams. Especially as she becomes more resolved not to let her life be stagnant and repetitive. "God is teaching me that life isn' t about being comfortable; it's about being obedient," says Joy. "My life has become about abandoning everything I've ever known. Although I feel more confident in what I do, I find myself more dependent on Christ." Graduating from high school, releasing a debut album, leaving her California home for Nashville and riding tour busses galore threw Joy into unfamiliar territory. "This last year has been a hard one as I learned to adapt to life as an artist,' says Joy. "Tour busses can feel lonely in spite of the close quarters, and hotel rooms can feel empty even though they are wonderfully luxurious. "It's been a hard year, but it's been a good year. There have been times when I've felt so alone but then so content with the companionship of Christ. I have discovered so much peace in the midst of so much change." So much change. The common phrase threading its way through the thoughtful ramblings of Joy nowadays. The world becomes a crazy place when thrown into adulthood — learning the art of balancing a checkbook and dealing with the auto mechanic while balancing life on the road performing and making media appearances. "God has been making what I like to call 'divine exchanges' in my life. I've enjoyed seeing my desire for surfing dwindle and my hunger to invest in people grow," says Joy. "If I don't allow God to continually change me and my desires, I'll become complacent and I won't have anything to offer anyone." Not having something to offer a person would weaken the very spirit of who Joy is as anyone who has been around her can attest to the fact that she thrives on connecting with people. At the core of Joy is a young person designed to encourage and invest deeply in others. Her demeanor is endearing, her countenance effervescent and glowing, her personality open and approachable, her heart genuine.
