My Heart To Joy's Final Show & Dubey Family Benefit LP

Pretty much everything has a start and an end. For My Heart To Joy, May 14th at the Madison Arts Barn in Madison, CT will be that end. All proceeds from the band's final show will go directly to the family of Mitch Dubey.


My Heart To Joy, who has been at the forefront of the Connecticut music scene for the past few years, will be sharing their final show with Algernon Cadwallader, Hostage Calm, Jettison, Snowing, Into It. Over It., Slingshot Dakota, and The Book Slave. The price for this amazing line up is a minimum of a $10 donation to the Dubey Family.


We've teamed up with the venue and all of the bands to release a live LP that will include at least one song from each band's set. All proceeds from the album will go to the Dubey Family. Artwork for the album will be done by Ben Sears and more details on the record will be released after the show. Mitch Dubey, who was a good friend of both My Heart To Joy and Topshelf Records, was recently murdered at his New Haven, CT home.

See ya there, nerds.

My Heart To Joy "Reasons To Be" pre orders are up!

My Heart To Joy - Reasons To Be art

Topshelf Records and My Heart To Joy. Like bread & butter, baby. After what seems like forever, Connecticut’s premiere pop-sensible twinkle daddies have some new material!

We are stoked to be announcing My Heart To Joy’s newest EP, Reasons To Be. The 3-song release was originally recorded this spring and is now finally being released. Reasons To Be is the band’s follow up to their critically acclaimed full length Seasons In Verse which was a joint release between ourselves and Asbestos Records last year. My Heart To Joy takes cues from Braid, Guided By Voices and Saves The Day on this release to produce their most clean sounding album yet.

The album will be available digitally and on vinyl. Vinyl is limited to 500 (100 White, 150 Light Blue, 250 Black) and each pre order comes with an immediate download of the album. We're also doing a test press contest wherein one lucky person who pre orders will receive a free test pressing of Reasons To Be. The digital version of Reasons To Be is available for purchase now at iTunes and other digital retailers.
