Zach, a.k.a. D.J.Z.

Q1) When and how did you first find Joy Electric?
When one of my friends had so many different Tooth & Nail CD's and I saw je in different magizine catologs before (which was CHRISTIANsongs) I wanted to buy it becasue the cover looked cool (which I don't know why). I heard "Lift Up Your Hearts" from CHRISTIANsongs on the cd Cheapskates Softer Side. It was something I've never heard before! So I asked my friend if he had CHRISTIANsongs. He did and he had Melody. I barrowed both of them. They both sounded different and I liked them both. So then in 2004 and 2005 I bought "Hello Mannequin" and "The Ministry of Archers."
