Contemporary Christian Praise & Worship artist Stephanie Joy has just released her latest solo EP 'Walk Your Road', featuring the new radio single 'Everything's Gonna Be Alright', and produced by Grammy Award winning record producer Val Garay (Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Kim Carnes, Kenny Rogers, and Bette Midler to name a few).
'Walk Your Road' is a 6 song collection of timeless pop contemporary Christian music that speaks to real life situations, and leads all to Christ. “No matter what road you are on, or wherever you are at in your journey, we must all come to the realization that we are in need of a Savior, and that this world will not deliver. We are nothing without Jesus Christ and every song I sing is birthed out of testimony and will speak directly to the heart of the hearer."
"Everything’s Gonna Be Alright is about finding who you are in Christ", explains Stephanie . "We go through life trying to find our identity in so many other things in this world, other than the Lord. When our eyes are truly opened to what the Bible says, we can see that our only purpose and reason for living is to live for Christ. As we go along life’s journey, we have to trust Him and by faith believe that everything will be alright, as long as we surrender our lives to the Lord through obedience and trust that even though it will probably be a rocky road, God will always see us through."
From an early age, Stephanie Joy grew up acting and singing on both the local and national levels. As a child, she was a bubbly personality and was in commercials for major corporations such as Cost Cutters, Pop Tarts and Best Buy. She was also featured on the front cover of Cheerios. The daughter of a Pastor, Stephanie Joy was born in North Dakota, but moved to Minnesota at the age of one with her family. Musical theatre played a huge role in launching Stephanie’s professional career. She starred in roles such as Annie, Cinderella, and The Music Man in productions throughout her home state of Minnesota. As singing began to dominate her professional career, she began her musical journey traveling throughout the country and abroad to sing Christian music.
Although Stephanie’s acting career took a backseat to her music career, she saw music as an important vehicle, and a life changing opportunity to reach young people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “With so many bad interpretations of who Christ is out there nowadays for young people to see, it is my desire for people to experience who Christ is in truth,” states Stephanie. “We are all on this journey, and I want to see both young and old come to know the God of the Bible as He is, and not how people want to make Him out to be.”
Stephanie continued to sing and travel with various bands throughout the U.S., and it was there that she began to hone her songwriting skills.
Stephanie Joy leads a very busy life, as a wife, and mother of 4 wonderful boys, while managing a major ministry, and taking on many administrative tasks. Stephanie Joy is the “Big Voice” that brings a refreshing sound to Christian music that is truly unforgettable and powerful. “I want both young and old to find Jesus Christ. I was put on this earth for God’s glory and to lead people to Christ. If my music helps me do that, then I have accomplished my purpose.”
