Biography

Brand new single Expiration Date sees New York-based singer/songwriter Evie Joy fighting like hell to stand in the sun.

A jazz vocalist, ukulele aficionado, and recipient of the Johnny Mercer Foundation Award, the track finds Joy leapfrogging off a cursory melody that popped into her head when walking around her house, her frustration with a former relationship blossoming into a sonic victory lap. It’s an anthem of female empowerment both vindicating and therapeutic that bears the inimitable message: “Fuck you, I’m done!”

Referring to her second year in New York when a challenging, one-sided relationship went stale, Expiration Date, in its simplest definition, is enthralling alt-jazz. It boasts provocative vocal stylings, sung fast, slow, high, and low. It teems with lounging bass grooves. It rides a ripping beat and, recorded amongst a community of like-minded musicians in Nashville, features sharp, dazzling production.

At its core, however, it’s a smart exercise in pop that reflects on giving everything to a relationship and receiving nothing in return, quietly asking its listeners in a concerted effort if it’s time to start taking control of bad habits that leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled.
