JOYFULTALK is the brainchild of Canadian composer Jay Crocker, whose past work has had glowing praise from publications like The New York Times, Globe & Mail, Paris Trans Atlantic, and the BBC. 

Since the release of JOYFULTALK's critically-acclaimed debut album, MUUIXX, the project has been augmented by multi-instrumentalist Shawn Dicey (Lab Coast, Jon McKiel, COUSINS). Over the last two years, JOYFULTALK has performed across Canada at festivals such as Suoni Per Il Popolo, Sled Island, OBEY Convention, Camp Wavelength and more. They've played alongside such acts as Micachu & the Shapes, Ben Frost, and Majical Cloudz, performing their compositions of wordless rivers, analogue tongue, and glitching fields of electric grass using a junked vocabulary of home-built electronics.
