Joy: "After a vivid memory from childhood of hearing a brass band approaching through the mist & rain would not leave my brain, I decided to record my latest collection of songs with this evocative sound. Sometimes mournful and sometimes humorous, the British brass band sound that I grew up with carried me on a new and inspiring journey to write and arrange this album Queen Victoria!"
