About Joy Kills Sorrow

Joy Kills Sorrow has always had a knack for writing and performing intimate songs. Now the Boston-based string band is emphasizing their epic side, too, on Wide Awake, a new EP released in June. The seven-song collection serves as a milepost in the blossoming career of an extremely talented band.

Joy Kills Sorrow formed in 2005, bringing together virtuoso musicians who share a love of American roots music. Vocalist Emma Beaton, who studied cello at Berklee College of Music, won “Young Performer of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2008. Guitarist Matthew Arcara took first place in the National Flat Pick Guitar contest at the Walnut Valley Festival in 2006. Jacob Jolliff, who was Berklee’s first full-scholarship mandolin student, won first place in the National Mandolin Championship in 2012 at the Walnut Valley Festival. Wes Corbett teaches banjo at Berklee College of Music. Zoe Guigueno, a British Columbia native, graduated with the President’s Award for the Creative and Performing Arts from Canada’s prestigious Humber College in Toronto, where she studied jazz bass. She recorded and toured for years throughout Canada and Europe with acclaimed Canadian bands Fish & Bird, Crooked Brothers and Bull Kelp before joining Joy Kills Sorrow.
