Emily, a.k.a. JoyElectricFreak

Q1) When and how did you first find Joy Electric?
Umm, well, my dad had this sampler okay? And the sampler had "Keep Him in Your thoughts" so i was like 5 or 6 at the time. i really liked it, i remember that part. But the sampler got lost and until 2000 i had forgoten Joy E.

Q2) Previous to JoyE, what did you listen to?
Before JoyE, stuff i now find too raw for my tastes. Like stupid spanish contemporary and other stuff.

Q3) How has JoyE influenced your musical tastes?
Like i said some stuff i used to like is now too raw. But the Bible says to gard above all things your heart so i really want to go to the extreme and listen to some Demonic stuff but i stop myself. I guess JoyE has made me a musicfanatic and try all types of music.

Q4) How has JoyE influenced your life?
The lyrics are life to all that hear them...It has influenced my style of writing.

Q5) Which JoyE albums do you own?
Let me see: RobotRock, CHRISTIANsongs, Children of the Lord Maxi Single, Unelectric,The White Songbook, Starcadia, The Art And Craft Of Popular Music

Q6) In your opinion, what is the best JoyE album, and why?
I really like The White Songbook, porbably because it reminds me of Tangerine Dream and is really musically developed.

Q7) In your opinion, what is the best JoyE song, and why?
The best Joy Electric Song is Parlor Inventor. I love listening to the song in the dark, gives me a odd feeling.

Q8) Have you seen Ronnie perform live? What did you think of the show?
I have never seen Ronnie perform, he's never been to Houston.

Q9) Have you ever talked to Ronnie before? What did you think of him?
I've never talked to Ronnie, although from what i've heard from everyone else (Cora and Fred) he's a nice guy.

Q10) Tell me your favorite Ronnie anecdote
I have no idea what that means, i'm guessing it's a characterictic of his, His voice, i love it when people ask me who's singing, but i hate it when they ask me if it's a girl, when they find out it's a guy, they ask if he's gay!

Q11) What makes JoyE such a great band, to you?
Everything, The hooks, the melody, Lyrics, the rythm, and Ronnie himself, He's an amazing guy.

Q12) What kind of music do you listen to, besides JoyE?
Most of the time i listen to Delirious? and the bands 38 Horsepower and Die Lo-Fi. I like forein, and other bands from Asia like: Bo:Bo, Eo:Eo, Lena Park, Witches, and others. I listen to stuff my father is in love with. Stuff like Tangerine Dream and Vangelis. And stuff that has guitars in it. I'll listen to anything that i know can't harm me, i've tried Powerman 500, it's brainwash.
