about

While working in British producer Barrie Gledden's studio above his horse stables and 8 cats in Wakefield, UK, I accomplished more than I thought possible in a matter of 2 1/2 days. 4 of these personal tracks were songs with melodies and lyrics I had long since developed and kept incubated, waiting for the right conditions to fully grow and flourish. These were now those conditions.

In March 2014, Barrie and I worked tirelessly all day and into the night crafting the right notes on acoustic guitar before we recorded these final cuts for "I Make The Static". Being good friends beforehand made it so much fun, free and crazier. The Game of Thrones references made it into a serious nerdfest!

Please enjoy my debut EP project, there are lyrical concepts of sorrow, change, growth, powerlessness, power, sensuality, and my gypsy lifestyle all wrapped into rock and roll guitars, crunchy drumbeats, sensual and powerful girl rock vocals and melodic pop elements. May the stories in my songs speak to you as much as they spoke to me when I was blessed enough to create them.

Track Name: I Make The Static
I Make The Static (lyrics)
By Joy Villa 2014

This love is hotter than Tuscon
Your lips are honey suckled fun
You pushed my buttons made me wild
I couldn’t quit you if I tried

It’s automatic
it’s automatic
I make the static, I make the static

They say you listen to what your told
I say you’re young but acting old
I may be bad but at least you're good
Ain’t lost a battle, knock on wood

It’s automatic
it’s automatic
I make the static, I make the static

I keep a flower in my hair
The smell of leather in the air
This fiery love is all I need
Let’s make a dirty magazine

It’s automatic
it’s automatic
I make the static, I make the static

Energy is rising up and it’s calling me
calling me and I’m on my way
this energy completes me
and it’s coming on
coming on
and I’m on my way
Track Name: The Darkness
The Darkness
By Joy Villa 2014

I'll walk away
pretending every things ok
it burns the pavement
of my soul

I know the truth
what I did before did me no good
These scars prove
My pain

cuz
I don’t want to live in the darkness
I want to step into the light

I can’t stand the darkness

It’s seeping into my soul
it’s seeping into my soul woah woah

And it’s all that I know

it’s all that I know

I’ll turn the page
a new story a new face
I made the change
for my
self

A heart to heart
love has passed and now
I feel alone
this quill writes
the song

I don’t want to live in the darkness
I want to step into the light
I can’t stand the darkness

It’s seeping into my soul
it’s seeping into my soul woah woah
And it’s all that I know
it’s all that I know

this hole is no place
suffering needs change

I’m breathing like it’s the first time

sunshine dries rain
spirit needs space

I’m seeing like it’s the first time

cuz

I don’t want to live in the darkness
I want to step into the light
Cause I can’t stand the darkness
It’s seeping into my soul
It’s seeping into my soul woah woah

And it’s all that I know
it’s all that i know
Track Name: Vagabonds
Vagabonds
by Joy Villa

My heels are itching to hit the road
shake the stress off and just let go

I wanna glitter like a disco ball
let my light shine and just take off

My heart is pounding to just be free
bodies’ swaying like a Cali palm tree

Vagabonds
we keep on going
we keep on going
never slowing down

We Move Beyond
we make our own way
we make our own way
gypsies of yester day

gypsies of yester day

found my diamonds from a starlit sky
drank my destiny from your eyes

dust has settled and so have I
I heard my voice in a coyote cry

What if you never left?
what if your never gone?
what if you missed your chance?
how would you get along?

But you’ve got to live
all of the life you can

all of the life you can
Track Name: Surrender
Surrender
Joy Villa 2014

We do recover
but we gotta surrender
surrender
Love one another
as we surrender
surrender

You want that power
jacked up control

but it won’t work
if you don’t let go

every hour
losing your soul

pray and release
for then you’ll know

we do recover
but you gotta surrender
surrender
love one another as we surrender
surrender

yeah yeah
ohh oh

You found higher Power
carries you through
the one thing you need
it will give you
Spirit milk of the soul
years of distress
melting like snow

Let it wash over you
a family you’ve come to know

A true life awakening
join us as we trudge this road
ooh
Track Name: Beautiful
Beautiful
By Joy Villa 2014

This song is for the girl
who’s got no home
she ran away young
cuz she didn’t know how
she didn’t wanna get hurt anymore
she cut herself when dad got drunk

her momma didn’t love her
and her daddy didn’t want her
And nobody wanted listen to her

this song is for the boy
who couldn’t man up
he got beat up
cuz he wasn’t tough enough

he wanted to impress the girls
so he drew a bunch of tattoos on

And he joined a gang
started stealing stuff
head all messed up
but he didn’t feel tough

no he didn’t feel tough

tell yourself you’re beautiful
you're beautiful
tell yourself you're beautiful
you're beautiful
tell yourself you're beautiful, you’re beautiful

this for the Momma
gave away her baby
daddy in jail
credit cards calling

burned her friends
and lost her job
and fell into a funk

her daddy didn’t want her
and her mommy didn’t love her
and nobody wanted to listen to her

this is for the man
who’s trying to stay a man
in a world of lies
pushed to the outside
made a choice
pressured to hide
they tell his he’s despised

tell yourself you’re beautiful
you're beautiful
tell yourself you're beautiful
you're beautiful
tell yourself you're beautiful, you’re beautiful
