Joy Askew

Joy Askew is a musician, singer, composer and animal lover! Arriving in New York from London, Askew was following her dream of a big career as a musician. She was the proud owner of a cutting edge new keyboard the Prophet V synthesizer and a Fender Rhodes piano. Very soon she found herself singing and playing on a long and successful world tour with Joe Jackson in support of his hit "Stepping Out".

The following 12 years she played and sang on tours and albums with Laurie Anderson, Joe Jackson, Phoebe Snow, Rodney Crowell and Peter Gabriel, also appearing in Laurie Anderson’s movie “Home of the Brave”.

During this time Joy began working with her own band writing songs and developing a sound.

Flash forward to today.
Joy is still living in NY and is as passionate about making music as she’s ever been. “Queen Victoria”, recorded with a British brass band, is her 8th full length record.

"Joy has outdone herself this time. This is a brilliant, inspired album—so original and beautifully conceived, arranged and performed."
Bonnie Raitt

“ When I heard that Joy was going back to her roots in the Northeast of England, and recording with a traditional English brass band, I expected something very English and nostalgic . . . which this album is. But it’s not only that; it’s also surprisingly contemporary, or rather, timeless. As in timelessly beautiful songs, singing, and arrangements. “
Joe Jackson

"Joy spellbound the audience at Bar LunÁtico, fronting a stellar New York City brass ensemble. They played the entire record ~ an ambitious undertaking which was rendered impeccably. The title track is simply unstoppable. We made them play it twice."
Bar LunÁtico
