The Daughters of Joy are Brenda Scallon and whoever shows up to play with her! Brenda's band is a kind of art project. She plays with whomever shows up for practice and shows and is a free spirit about maintaining a band. I'd played with her off-and-on since moving to the Seattle area. Jon Ulrigg played bass with us for my first year in the band. Most recently the DOJ included Brenda's husband Tim on bass, sometimes substituted for Melynn and a horn section. Brenda's voice is a lot like Chrissy Hynde's but her songwriting is really all over the place. Funky, rock, folky, jazzy, and sometimes all the above in the space of a three-minute song. B remains easily one of the most creative individuals I've ever known and I love her.
