The Joys

The Joys single “Keep Tryin To Try” has been Certified Gold adding to their several industry awards. They hit #1 on the SoundScan charts in London, Belleville and Windsor and were one of the top selling indie bands last summer. They have songs appearing in many TV shows and movies including the feature film Cake starring Heather Graham. PlayStation 2 is also using a Joys’ song in a commercial playing at the ACC.

Metamorphosis is a key word in the career of London Ontario musicians, The Joys. The last year or so has been a real period of growth and change for the band; as well as a period of introspection-and finally, happiness. All these emotions and changes are reflected on the group’s album, UNFOLD.

“The last couple of years have been tumultuous both for the band and in our personal lives,” says singer Sarah Smith. “It has been a roller coaster of emotion, both good and bad and the new songs reflect that.”

Marriages, births in families, as well as deaths, have been key events marking a sea of change in the band’s growth.
