Music, love, and well being... could you ask for more?
— An observer of Mad For Joy

When the world brings two people together who love music and inspiring the human spirit, the result is Mad For Joy. From fairy-like lullabies to romp-stompers, expect the unexpected. Mad For Joy is on a mission to bring a joyful experience to all who listen.

Barn breweries and railway stations, moving trains and windy rooftops, Adam Kerby and Jocelyn Hallett have delighted audiences with their dreamy-gutsy-bluesy sound from the shores of Vancouver Island to the coast of the Atlantic.

Small town-bred, Kerby from Terrace, BC, and Hallett hailing from Vancouver, BC, met at Jazz school and have been on a collaborative musical spree ever since. Jumping on trains in 2015, they toured on VIA Rail to promote their acoustic EP, Vintage Rainbow, traveling across the country winning over fans with their fun-loving banter and zest for life.


Coming January 15, 2019, is Mad For Joy’s debut album, Garden of the Muse. The debut features 12 original songs and one very original cover of Old Man by Neil Young.

It doesn’t matter if you love folk, pop or EDM, music can help your mood, help you cope with tricky emotions, motivate you, relax, you, create social connection, provide empathy, and much more. Mad For Joy is curious about how music can make an impact on mental health and are sharing what they find.

With tragedy and sorrow, break-ups and stubbed toes... Who isn’t Mad For Joy?
