Holly Dayle
Joy Changes Things - Single

Singer/songwriter Holly Dayle began steadily releasing singles in 2019, honing her craft and, in the process, using her musical talents to bless her peers and bring glory to Jesus. Her latest single, and first since 2020, is called "Joy Changes Things." The song mixes organic instrumentation (acoustic and electric guitar) with light synth and some electronic drums that sound like they have a classic mid-90s pop production. Dayle's voice blend in well with the stylistic choices, though at times, it sounds like she's perhaps lacking a bit of confidence, leading to vocals that are a bit shaky and even a little off-key a few times (though it's usually barely noticeable). The theme of the song is an important one, especially in our current culture, as it's about making the decision to be joyful at all times. We're in a time where people feel more nihilistic every day, and it can be wearisome. In response, Dayle sings, "When all you need is help / to free you from the fear and the doubt / when the only thing you want to do is go back to what's haunting you / just remember... joy changes things / being in His presence, when His love is enough / He keeps you going and you'll see / joy changes things." The lyrics are relevant, and they serve as a great reminder to focus on God instead of our tough circumstances. "Joy Changes Things" may appeal to fans of Wild Harbors and Francesca Battistelli, and it's available to buy and stream now.
