Adam Kroeker of ChristianWeek writes this of her new release - A King Has Come -" Indeed the album's force lies in its portrayal of the world through childlike eyes...At times, Joy's soft vocal inflection seems to intentionally mimic that of a singing child."
Rob Williams of the Winnipeg Free Press reviewed "A King Has Come" Thursday December 22, 2011.-" Manitoba singer-songwriter Barbara Joy releases her debut album, an eight -song Christmas/winter collection of original piano-based tunes that probably won't be covered by choirs but makes for a pleasant diversion from the overplayed standards and is as joyful as her name.
All of the songs were written by Joy, who touches on the birth of Jesus on the title track: sings of the simple pleasures of the season on Celebrating Christmas. puts herself in the place of a young hockey player dreaming of a medal on Playing for Gold: and delves into winter imagery on Snowflakes and Mr. Snowman. " Thanks to the Winnipeg Free Press and ChristianWeek Magazine.
