Jocelyn Mackenzie - Joyful Girl (Single)
Jocelyn Mackenzie and Emily Price's reimagined cover of the classic Ani DiFranco song, "Joyful Girl."
Jocelyn says about the recording:
"Joyful Girl has always been my favorite Ani song, even more so after I started watching her perform it live when we were on tour together with my band Pearl and the Beard in 2012. The tune is so melancholy and the words are so hopeful, which is the perfect marriage of what it means to love ourselves – it's not easy, and it's not always intuitive, but this song gives me the feeling that making the effort to rise above my own self doubt is always worth it. It was the obvious choice as a cover to include in my first episode of Self Love Sundays on Righteous Babe Radio, and Emily Hope Price was the obvious choice of collaborators. Her cello and arrangement sing the feeling of longing and strength I hear in Joyful Girl's message, and her deep involvement on my record PUSH made this one of many collaborations with Emily even that much more joyful and powerful."
