To the Girl



Joy Zimmerman is a soulful singer-songwriter known for compelling vocals, award-winning songs, and captivating performances. A traveling musician based in Kansas City, Joy is currently working on “To the Girl”, her sixth album of original music. Joy is a multi-instrumentalist whose eclectic music might be best described as folk rock with extra helpings of favorite genres.  

Born with a tooth on Shakespeare’s 400th birthday, Joy feels lucky to have discovered her singing and songwriting voice. Her musical path began with violin lessons before kindergarten and evolved with guitar lessons after her own children were in kindergarten. Now her songwriting awards include an American Songwriter Lyric Contest Honorable Mention and eight Walnut Valley Festival NewSong Showcase wins. 

Joy has recorded three albums in Nashville and two in Kansas City. She enjoys performing solo, in a duo with Jimmy Dykes, and with a full band. Joy is an engaging presenter who weaves music with themes of resilience, gratitude, and creativity. 

"Joy has a unique way of connecting to her audience in a way that I have seen no other performer do." ~Peggy Kelly, Open Range Concert Series 

"To listen to Joy play and sing, to be carried along through her ordinary/wondrous journey, and to hear echos of your own in it...There's so much about her work that resonates with me at a level even deeper that I can articulate."  ~Erika Marksbury
