On Joy in the Morning, Wells pushes the limits of what fans might expect from him; combining different genres and styles into a deep, abiding message.
“I’ve come to view my music as an entrance not as an escape—it’s where you get to step in and consider your life,” explains Tauren Wells. “You can consider the pain. Consider the disappointments. Consider the dreams. And now, all of a sudden, you have a soundtrack that helps sooth the wounds or awaken the dreamer. It’s not about getting out of your life. It’s about getting more out of your life.”
