Joy In Motion are a brand new 4-piece straight out of the heart of Brisbane. A project borne out of Jake Solway’s desire to shift into something a little different from his previous act, heavy band Road to Ransome. Jake was drumming for that band – but always had a desire to front a band as the vocalist.

Today they (Jake Solway – Vocals, Patrick Heaton – Bass, Carly Sinn – Drums and Dylan Cottee – Guitar) release their very first taste of Joy In Motion, ahead of their debut EP release, which drops on Friday May 26th. Pre-Orders are now live at their Big Cartel and Band Camp sites.

The straight-up pop rock/alt rock sound comes from Jake growing up listening to bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182 and Sum 41 and the results are obvious. Clean tones, beautiful vocals and sing a long vocals for days means that Joy In Motion will be hard to shake out of your head.


The EP ‘Falling Out’ was produced, mixed and mastered by Declan White, who is located in Melbourne. The band flew him up to Brisbane and he stayed with the band for 3 weeks during the production process, recording out of vocalist Jake’s home studio.

The brand new single is paired with a fantastically-shot video clip from Third Eye Visuals, where a couple is going through different stages of life together. They start together as young children at the start of the clip, then grow into teenagers throughout the middle before finishing as adults at the end of the clip (watch for the changing of seasons through the clip too!).

Vocalist Jake Solway is enthusiastic about the project finally coming to light and for people to hear it.

“As you could imagine, I’m very excited. I began writing demos for this band in 2015 and it’s my first time going through the entire song writing process, so it’s been a huge learning process for me. I was fortunate enough to have some very talented people on board for the project. The musicians, producer and video director (Third Eye Visuals) are all excellent people and amazing at what they do, so it’s safe to say this would be a very different band without them.
