“To follow her in song is to exercise the mind. Sometimes easy and fluid, sometimes intricate and challenging, her voice is always… beautiful.”

“Martin Said” by Joy Mover:

Oh the time is always right to do what’s right Martin said
In the mornin, afternoon, all through the night
When the whims of fate and fortune
Sail you right on down the river
And the dreams you feed on
Lives you lead on
Taking from the givers
And the time is always right to do what’s right, Martin said
Yes the time is always right to do what’s right
Tell everybody to hold on tight
Tell everybody
It’s a wild ride
So hold on tight
Hold on tight

For the change
Need to change
If we change
When we cha-a-a-a-nge ourselves
We sustain the world
One person at a time
Can change
We can change
If we change
When we cha-a-a-nge ourselves
We can heal the world

And the time it must be now to do what’s right
From the east to the west to the southern and northern lights
On a sea of change that rearranges
Yesterday’s tomorrows
Yet what still remains a dream’s refrain
Of happiness and sorrows
And the time is always right to do what’s right (Martin said)
Yes the time is always right to do what’s right

He said to tell everybody
An eye for an eye
Makes everybody blind
So hold on tight
Can’t see where we’re going
Hold on tight

For the change
Need to change
If we change
When we cha-a-a-nge ourselves
We change the world
One person at a time

Can change
Rearrange
When we change
If we cha-a-a-ange ourselves
Maybe we’ll heal this world

Yes we can change the world
Heal the world
Brothers and sisters
Boys and girls
If we love one another
We can heal the world
When we honor our mother (earth)
We’ll heal the world

We can change
Need to change
When we change
If we change
We change the world

And the time is always right to do what is right…Martin said
Yes the time is always right to do what’s right

Joy’s uncanny ability to transcend eras and styles, mixed with her knack for attracting incredible musical talent to help her realize her vision, are key elements that set her apart from the multitude of talented vocalists working today.

Unlike many artists of today, Joy Mover has a distinctive, quickly recognizable style. Within three notes you will recognize the distinct voice and spirit of Joy Mover. Hers is a voice to be reckoned with. On her new release, she has managed to create something new while still giving a healthy nod to the musical heritage of the past.”

“Take a dash of pop, add a little jazz, and stir in some Latin beats and you have the music style of Joy Mover.”
