Recommendation: ‘Wide Awake’ by Joy Kills Sorrow

Joy Kills Sorrow performs live on Mountain Stage.
This month's folky recommendation is the 2014 album Wide Awake by Joy Kills Sorrow. And it appears courtesy of Spotify changing my music-listening habits and stopping me from listening to the same 12 albums over and over again. Great songwriting. Great singing. And sort of developing a theme of recommending mandolin virtuosi... Current Favourite Song: Fun though their cover of The Postal Service's 2003 hit 'Such Great Heights' is, it's actually the first track: 'Was It You'.
