JOY* feat. Mark Vanilau Latest Release

JOY* feat. Mark Vanilau
‘The String Of The Strength’
From the MOTHER E.P

With Infinite respect to ever-changing Mother Nature all around us, ‘MOTHER E.P’ is the latest release from the eclectic and serial music producer *JOY*
Heralding the MOTHER’ E.P is the electronic, RnB-soulful track,
‘The String of the Strength’ ft Mark Vanilau.

Mark has worked with New Zealand’s best - he’s a regular member of Dave Dobbyn’s band, and has played with Fly My Pretties, Trinity Roots, Hollie Smith, Eru Dangerspiel and Ladi 6.

Mark Vanilaus’ superb voice sets off the sparse percussion and enhances the lyrical journey of this song.

Dancing on the fringes of jazz ‘The String of the Strength’ builds from a spatial place, gliding into cello and riding on a beautiful undertow of piano. There is a rich musical freedom to this track.

MOTHER E.P is created by *JOY* “With all the respect to all the committed mum’s who never ceased to love their babies no matter how hard their situation may be”
Known for his unique approach to musical releases and frequent outpouring of experimental music, *JOY* is releasing 3 E.P's over 3 months, so here is #1 MOTHER.

He will be doing this 2 times this year that’s 9 E.P's over 12 months, for the love of music.

*JOY* often works with guest artists, ‘The String of the Strength’ ft Mark Vanilau is an idyllic collaboration.
