Homey and bittersweet, Christa Joy's songs tell dreamlike and personable stories in a back porch style. Her honey-toned voice recalls Americana greats like Gillian Welch and Nanci Griffith. Joy is a member of the Pioneer Valley's Woman Songwriter Collective of Western Massachusetts and has performed at notable folk venues throughout New England, including Club Passim, The Iron Horse, and The Parlor Room. Joy released her first album, "Ready or Not," in 2012. In 2014, she released her second album, "Daughter of your Lost Art," to a sold-out venue at Northampton's Parlor Room. Her second album continues her exploration of perennial human themes like transience, facing loss, and discovering life.

Nationally touring musician Meg Hutchinson writes, "Christa Joy has one of those voices that seems to emerge with effortless grace. As a performer her sincerity is enchanting. We know she means what she says, and she says it so well. Her new album 'Daughter of Your Lost Art' confirms that she is an artist who has arrived."
