Joy Zimmerman and Jimmy Dykes join forces for an eclectic array of Joy's original songs and cover tunes. Joy and Jimmy's dynamic instrumentals and vocal harmonies create acoustic electricity.

Joy Zimmerman is a soulful singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She is known for compelling vocals, inventive songwriting and engaging performances. Joy's music is shaped by violin lessons starting before kindergarten, diverse musical taste, and plenty of life's sweet and bitter moments. Her vocal and instrumental versatility reflect a love of wide-ranging musical styles.

Joy has five albums of original music -- two recorded and co-produced with Jimmy Dykes in Kansas City at Weights and Measures Soundlab and three recorded in Nashville at Azalea Studios. Her lyrics reflect a deep understanding of human experience and emotion. Joy's songwriting awards include American Songwriter Lyric Contest Honorable Mention and four Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase wins.

Hooked by the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show when he was eight, Jimmy Dykes was performing professionally by the age of ten and was most notably playing with the local and regional act Solar Eclipse whose penchant was soul funk and R&B. While not limited to any genre, blues, soul funk, R&B, and jazz have always been home.

Jimmy has played in many bands over the years: JT Cook, SDI (strategic dance initiative), Baby Leroy, Blue Riddim band, Hot House, Thirsty and the Water Boys and has performed with many major artists, including Dr John Shadow, Isaac Hays, Mike Finnigan, Rufas Tomas, Percy Sledge, and toured internationally with Oleta Adams for 17 years.
