Dark Beauty will tell the legend of the Dark Angel who fell from grace and now rules an evil tower in an unknown land.  Banished from heaven she is pulled down from grace above, falling deep into the woods of the dark primeval forest.  With a broken wing she descends through twisted cathedral-like branches of trees.  Dark Beauty, five supremely talented musicians who range from opera singer to a professor at the Manhattan School of Music have come together in a classically influenced, gothic alternative Progressive Rock band that will tell this tale in its concept album, “Fall From Grace”. This will be the first time anyone has ever heard it.

Joy Collins is a fourth generation vocalist who has seen a lot of life, both good and bad.  After hitting bottom, she has gone through a metamorphosis, like a caterpillar into a butterfly, shaking off addictions, hitting bottom and finding love again.  With a perfect pitch voice and lyrics and power than come from having lived  the stories sings,  she is ready to take the music world by storm.  Joy has worked with some of the most sought after players in Nashville and is now stepping out and a strong, emerging country musician. Her new album , It Ain’t Just Music, is what country is about – life as it comes at you and we are proud to have her.
