Living Out Loud is the first Joyce Cooling album in 10 years. Exquisitely produced by Jay Wagner, this original 5-song EP is Cooling, Wagner, and friends at their best. San Francisco-based guitarist, singer, songwriter, Joyce Cooling, has recorded seven previous albums - five charting albums on Billboard; two #1 radio singles; six top 10 singles; and thirteen charting singles in all. Cooling received the "Gibson Best Jazz Guitarist of the Year" Award and "Best New Talent" in the Jazziz Reader’s Poll.
With a nod to where they’ve been, coupled with a full-on embrace of the now, Living Out Loud is an innovative twist on their signature sound. Joyce’s musicianship shines with a unique, soulful energy and the entire album makes a passionate statement. From the uplifting 1st single, “It’s So Amazing,” to the sultry, “Marina’s Dream,” Living Out Loud takes the listener on a colorful, compelling journey.
The exciting title track boasts superb playing from Joyce and the band, and the R&B-tinged “Got To Find My Own Way” is downright crazy funky. The EP ends with “Carry On,” a gorgeous vocal ballad with a whole lot of heart. The trip is rich and powerful and one worth taking.
