Introducing: Joyce Kwon

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2018 Folk Introducing Listen New Stream

Joyce Kwon is a multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles who recently released her debut album Dream of Home via ps fairy records.

Kwon both a singer and a zither player, explores the many possibilities of the folk genre, adding her own stamp to the genre with smartly crafted songs that blur the lines between folk, art-pop and even elements of jazz and world music.

Take the album’s tile track, “Dream of Home,” a heartfelt and dreamy track that shows off Kwon’s elegant vocals and patient approach that lends a welcoming hand into the album. Or take the track “Nililiya” which is a a Korean traditional song that she has given a modern arrangement, as well as elements of jazz that it blends to create something familiar yet very different in an authentic fashion.

This may be Kwon’s debut album but this is clearly an artist who has been due to release an album for a long time as she is clearly a talent that has just been waiting to be discovered and her time has finally come.

Enjoy streams of both “Dream of Home” and “Nililiya,” which are posted below and find the whole album available to stream or purchase at Bandcamp.
