Joyce

Joyce Moreno (often recording as simply "Joyce") is best known as a Brazilian singer/songwriter and arranger, but is equally adept as an accomplished guitarist; both principally in the Bossa Nova style.

Arguably, her most important work, in terms of a Brazilian socio-political context, was her album "Feminina" (1980).

She is married to drummer Tutty Moreno, who plays in her band. Two of her daughters are also singers, Clara Moreno and Ana Martins (aka Anané) who is married to Louie Vega.

Born 31 January in Rio de Janeiro, Joyce has in her portfolio over 400 recordings of songs she has authored, interpreted by the greatest names in Brazilian popular music: Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria Bethânia, Milton Nascimento, Ney Matogrosso, Edu Lobo, Emilio Santiago, Boca Livre, Nana Caymmi, Zizi Possi, Elizeth Cardoso, Simone, Leny Andrade, Mônica Salmaso, and many others. Beyond Brazil, Joyce’s work has been recorded by Annie Lennox, Wallace Roney, Omara Portuondo, Black Eyed Peas, David Sanchez, Jon Lucien, Claus Ogerman, Gerry Mulligan, Till Brönner, Flora Purim, to name a few. Joyce’s compositions have been featured in film soundtracks (e.g., The Player by Robert Altman and Legally Blonde by Robert Luketic), animations (the Japanese anime Wolf’s Rain, in partnership with composer Yoko Kanno), TV programs, and theatrical productions. Since the beginning of her career, Joyce’s registered trademark has been the first-person feminine voice, which she pioneered; she was the first Brazilian female songwriter to express herself in this form, opening the way for countless other artists who followed.

Joyce received four nominations for the Latin Grammy. To date, she has released 34 personal CDs and two DVDs, in addition to numerous compilations and guest appearances. Currently, her work takes her all over the world; she makes annual tours and records new albums in various countries, never losing her feminine Brazilian identity. Each year she performs on the Japanese Blue Note circuit and tours jazz festivals and other venues in Europe and North America.
