Canadian folk-roots musician Tania Joy has been using this time in isolation to hone her songwriting, finally following up her 2013 EP.

Her stories, so far, have been about relationships, in all of their complicated forms. However, during the pandemic, Tania found herself taking on a more complex narrative as the world around her shifted, bringing increased and global attention to Black Lives Matter. With mentorship from Hillside’s Girl and Guitars program, Tania wrote her first protest song, an acoustic reflection “Planks and Marietta,” which was released during Black History Month.

Tania’s latest single, “Blink,” is a song written from the perspective of life changing beyond one’s control, through denial, uncertainty, and then finding empowerment on the other side. The video premiered on Americana UK. The single was produced by Hill Kourkoutis (Digging Roots, Leela Gilday, Madison Violet) and will be featured on her forthcoming album due out this fall, along with previously released singles “Planks and Marietta” and “The Drought“.
