American singer-songwriter Casi Joy will be known to Australian audiences – and in her home country – because of her appearance on The Voice. Her country-pop sound turned all four chairs in the audition, and she chose Blake Shelton as her coach. With over 27 million video views and 250 000 followers on social media, Joy has clearly become a fan favourite – and she’s now released a poignant new song, ‘Poor Angel’, as the follow-up to her 2019 EP The Bright Side. With its introspective, heartfelt lyrics, the song gives comfort to anyone who is searching for meaning – and also offers hope. Joy’s voice conveys the emotion of the song and demonstrates her ability to be powerful and subtle.
Joy is originally from Kansas City but moved to Nashville, then spent quite a lot of time on a tour bus, and she has shared the stage with artists such as Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Carly Pearce, Easton Corbin, Dustin Lynch, and LOCASH. Joy is also an advocate for children and animals, and has done extensive charity work for a range of organisations. She also spent many years teaching students and special-needs children voice, piano and guitar.
