Joy Duo


Once upon a time in a land dubbed Canberra, there was a talented guy named David who loved to play the guitar. One day, David decided to move to Newcastle where it was much warmer. Hooray! And yet, alas, he didn’t have anyone to sing along to his sweet string sounds.

One evening he happened upon a lass in Newcastle, playing and singing all on her lonesome. His GF (who was very wise and beautiful mind you) urged her brave companion to approach the girl-bard to see if she would like to play songs together for creative enjoyment and perhaps a little dough. Jessica (the young minstrel now entered into our story) sensed with her brain that the young man was a very nice gentleman and they agreed to work together as a team for the good of everyone’s ears.

And then there was Joy Duo! You’re welcome

David’s musical capabilities range from guitar – both lead, acoustic, slide, bass, ukulele, didgeridoo, harmonica, keys, vocals and beat-boxing.
Jessica is also cool; she sings, plays the guitar and taps the tambourine when the occasion arises.
