Joslyn Petty was brought up in Washington, D.C. until her mid-teens, but then moved with her family to Salt Lake City. The local music scene led to session work, local gigs and finally a job as a receptionist at a recording studio. It was there she met the Canadian production duo Craig Poole and Rob Wannamaker, and together they began crafting the sound that is JOSLYN.
We first heard the voice of Joslyn several years ago and immediately included the smooth soul ballad “Used To” on “Soul Lounge 4”. More songs were recorded and “Never Ending” found its way onto “Soul Lounge 6”.
Some of Joslyn’s early material attracted attention from UK radio presenters and reviewers, including Blues & Soul, who described her style as “Maxwell meets Lisa Stansfield at her very best”.
In 2012, with close to 20 tracks from Joslyn recorded, we found ourselves returning periodically to these classy, soulful productions, featuring the girl with the warm, intimate voice. An album of 11 of her finest tracks has been distilled, and finally receives a UK and European release on Dome – available now on iTunes
Joslyn and the production team also re-visit “Hangin’ On A String” and succeed in bringing something new to the Eighties classic. The album’s other cover is “Circle”, originally by Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan.
