It’s easy to listen to Joy Kate’s music and get lost in how catchy it is and loss sight of the importance in what she says. Kate is the same person who wrote and produced an anti-bullying song after winning a songwriting competition at the young age of 10.
So while you listen, dance, hum, or whatever you want to do while listening to Joy’s music… Listen, read, or do whatever you need to do to educate yourself on what exactly her music is saying. In fact, do that for every song or artist you listen to. There’s always something to learn.
Melanie Martinez…. Oops I mean Kate has always been extremely passionate about music, knowing from a young age that she was very connected with and wanted to explore on a higher level.
Today, she has built a strong and supportive fan base from around the world… “I love talking to my fans online and making connections with them through my music. It makes me feel less alone knowing I have people who relate to what I am saying in my songs, and I consider each and every one of them a friend I couldn’t do without,” she says.
I am definitely a tea person! Growing up in the south, sweet tea is a big deal, so I always loved the taste. Then as I got older, hot tea became something calming and soothing for my voice after long hours singing on stage or in a recording studio.Joy Kate (10/29/2020)
Before I say something that can be misleading, I am saying this based on Joy’s musical personality. In other words, although Joy Kate appears through her music videos and music as an extrovert, this may not be true as a person outside of her musical career.
You may be wondering what the quote above means to this article, well according to an article I read on Medium that was brilliantly written by Antoinetta D, introverts and extroverts are equally prone to being victims of an abusive relationship. But it is also true that those victims don’t always have to suffer forever with an abusive spouse, and they don’t always have to be (like Joy says so perfectly) a puppet.
The quote and her music above tells me that Joy is an extrovert, because according to a study by the New York Post (that was discussed in an article by Long Island News 12) tea drinkers are more adventurous and daring extroverted night owls who are average sleepers and they just so happen enjoy pop music.
In her personally life Kate was manipulated in a toxic and long standing relationship, which she is now broken away from. Puppet is the after effect of this break up, and it’s probably the strongest and most vulnerable song I have reviewed yet. I have nothing but respect for that as a person who’s been in the same spot. Not to mention how many of my friends have been in the same spot too…
(Puppet) was so special to me and brought out a vulnerable side that my fans have never seen from me before. I wanted a song to empower my fans and myself with the strength to realize when we are not being treated the way we deserve. ‘Like a puppet’, we might all feel the pull of outside forces whether it is from a bad relationship, social media influences, or political, but it is up to us to know our true worth and “break free” from strings that try to control us.Joy Kate
Me: what kind of direction do you want to take with your music?
Joy: I am still experimenting and exploring through music. I would love to get more into sync with songs in tv and film and also write for other artists because songwriting has always been something I am so passionate about. As a teen, I still have so much growing to do and music is my creative outlet, so I am sure my craft will evolve over time as I change as a person.
Me: What are your plans for the future?
Joy: I am continuing to study hard at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music to further my craft and gain access to tools that will help me have longevity in my career. Right now I am also working on several projects including sync opportunities, collabs, and a new EP! My fans can expect to see announcements about all of these things as well as a new sound from me and more songs that help me use my voice to be vulnerable and spread positive messages.
I would like to thank Brittany from Gramophone PR for introducing me to the stunning talent, Joy Kate. I really like Joy and hope for nothing but success with my support.
