Joy Williams is the winner of four Grammy Awards. She has released four solo albums and four EPs since her self-titled debut in 2001. She was half of The Civil Wars from 2009 until 2014, after which she released her solo LP, 2015's Venus, which was praised by NPR Music for it's "new, more adventurous pop sound," furthering, "Williams takes on this material without shirking its heaviness, but her gift for melodies that rise up like warm winds brings a climate of grace to even the most difficult subject matter."

Produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang, "Front Porch" features 12 new songs and represents a new chapter in Williams' career, who recorded the album in Nashville during the pregnancy of her second child.

She reflects, "There is an energy that is very creative in having a baby. It gives a sense of urgency on top of all the creative energy. Cellularly, your body is experiencing something really different. Everything you are feeling is elevated. And you have a time-stamped sense of urgency." Already receiving praise, Rolling Stone states the new music, "...is both familiar and new, and explicitly clear that there's nothing missing when she goes it alone."
