Album Notes
Nicky Moran singer/songwriter of Hamilton New Zealand wrote her JOY EP over 2010 or so and approached a mentor Jules Riding to recommend how to record her first professional album after 2 previous semi-professional albums: NIcky Moran Band Live in 2008 and Surrender in 2009. Wayne Huirua of Auckland was recommended and a relationship was forged. Wayne really helped push the boundaries with arrangements and fully produced the album and became a great mentor also.

JOY the single was set with a country/rock feel, somewhat like a Goldenhorse song and is a generic song about what Joy feels like. It was written during swimming lessons of the writers children at the poolside on guitar during a moment of abstract boredom "Lord can I have some Joy please?" And the result is bouncy and catchy and quite uplifting to hear or sing along to, give it a try. Look for the JOY video on uTube and Nicky Moran's website.

SURRENDER is a gospel song of honesty and the process of laying down a life to acknowledge a need for God and making room for Him to move. It is a remake of At the Altar the first track on the Surrender album 2009. Genre here is Rock anthem with techno crossover.

IN is a fresh battle song. Its starts with a declaration, then moves to proclamation and contains elements of surrender and victory, praise and desire to enter IN to where God is, invading Heaven with violent worship and bringing it to earth. In is an earthy rock song with jazz overtones.

FALL is a beautiful worship song about letting go of all that holds us back and falling down before the Lord, looking for his outpouring, then being a part of it while declaring the very nature of God with a gentle jazz edge to.

LOVE is the theme to "Your love pours over me", Nicky's personal favorite for the album, it is gentle and heartfelt. Many people say they experience it physically while they listen to the song. The style is acoustic/folk with a definite percussive feel and acoustic guitars, subtle harmonies and instrumentation.

In total the eclectic JOY EP is very interesting, warm and draws the listener into a journey starting with JOY and ending with Peace, so come get yours today!
