Joy Williams
Songs From That

Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 5 tracks: 15 minutes, 27 seconds
Street Date: September 15, 2009

Joy Williams has returned to music with a vengeance, releasing a brand new EP in January, and having her songs appear on Grey's Anatomy, 90210 and Drop Dead Diva. Now she has released two brand new EPs, this one being titled Songs From That.

The EP starts out with the mid-tempo "You're My Favorite," which features whimsical music and almost fairy-tale like vocals. "The Look of Love," a duet with Tim Myers, is a beautiful, easy-going track that reminds me of Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat's song "Lucky."

"Doesn't Get Better Than This" is a simple, catchy tune that is wispy and delightful. "Up Means Down" makes up for the last song with its unforgettable quirky tone and magical vocals. The EP ends with "Speaking A Dead Language," a touching ballad that showcases Joy's fantastic voice.

Overall, while Songs From That is even better than Songs From This, it shines like a bright star and is definitely one of Joy's best, if not her very best.
