Daisy Rock Guitars is pleased to announce that Sarah Smith of The Joys has signed up as a new Daisy Rock artist endorser.
High-energy Canadian rock band The Joys has been racking up fans, attention and awards throughout North America for the last 3 years. Based in London, Ontario, this four-piece group mixes many musical influences, resulting in a sound that is both contemporary and classic in its origins.
Led by the dynamic whirlwind of lead vocalist Sarah Smith on vocals/guitar, the band is rounded out by long-time song-writing partner Mike McKyes on lead guitar and the pounding rhythm section of Shawn Smith and Glen "Archie" Gamble.
So far, the band has sold over 10,000 CDs independently. They’ve also licensed their music to a Playstation2 commercial, as well as the hit TV show \'Chris and John\'s Road Trip\' on OUTtv and the feature film "CAKE" starring Heather Graham and Taye Diggs. In 2004, The Joys were nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the 2004 COCA - Canadian Campus Entertainment Awards, and they were also voted Best Pop/Rock Act at the 2004 & 2005 London Music Awards. In total, The Joys have played over 200 shows and over 30 Universities/Colleges all across Canada in 2005 alone. They are currently recording their next CD, due for release in the Summer of 2006.
