About The Key of Joy
Fort Collins, CO
In 2005 Lauren began her career in Colorado Spring as a singer/songwriter. Staring off playing in local bars soon turned into recording her 1st album, "Portable Me." The CD which was originally recorded as her 1st demo posted great reviews and was soon being sold by Independent Records in both Colorado springs, and Denver. In 2006 Lauren was asked to play at New West Fest, a festival in Fort Collins, Colorado, and fell in love with the town. Just a few months later Lauren made the move up to Fort Collins where she met band mate Mason Bassuk. The two had and instant connection and began playing as "Lauren Joy Music," an acoustic rock duo. A few years later this love for the music also turned into a love for each other and in December 2008 they became husband and wife.
Mason and Lauren's style of music went through many different changes in their search for someone who felt as passionately about music as they did. As fate would have it in the summer of 2009 they met Dave Wisbon, a local musician to Fort Collins. From his energetic style on the keys to his unique tone on the harmonica, Dave has brought an intense new feel to the sound. The three of them are very excited to release their 1st album "Natural" as The Key of Joy this April.
