Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to venture up to Asheville, N.C. to spend the day with Charleston musician Grace Joyner. The photoshoot was on occasion of her debut album Maybe Sometimes in C that was to be released the following weekend. The album is a long anticipated follow-up to her Young Fools EP, which I reviewed some time ago for a local Charleston publication. Joyner is charming; she is modest and lovely, humble in her quiet town in the mountains - a starkly different community from that of the raucous socialite coastal community she had previously called home.
It is no surprise that her time in Asheville led to her completion of the album, and immense reflection on her self - her wants, needs, dreams. A historian and stylist at heart, music will likely always be a side project for Joyner. I highly recommend a listen through the album, and I thank Grace and her dog Trixie for their time and hospitality.
