Joyce Moreno

Featuring: Joyce Moreno, vocal & guitar


"One of the greatest singers of all time" - Antonio Carlos Jobim

3-time Latin Grammy nominee, the legendary bossa jazz maven Joyce Moreno returns to North America in 2010 supporting her new (and 30th!) album "Slow Music". Joyce toured Canada for the first time last summer to a rapturous reception at the summer Canadian jazz festivals. 2010 will see Joyce in the US for the first time in 3 years.

Far from just another talented Brazilian singer, the multi-talented artist Joyce combines song writing, guitar playing, vocal skills and a flair for feminist themes in her lyrics in a way that makes her unique among a group of celebrated peers that includes such one-of-a-kind interpreters as Gal Costa, Maria Bethania and Nara Le„o. 'Slow Music" features numerous Joyce new originals, co-compositions as well as songs by Marcos Valle, Vinicius De Moraes, and Chico Barque

As a celebrated songwriter, her compositions have been recorded over 300 times by some of the greatest names in Brazilian and international music, such as Flora Purim, Milton Nascimento, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria Beth‚nia, and others.

'Her precise pitch, her elegant harmonies on guitar, her choice of materialboth classic and new - it all seems such a natural part of her, you might overlook her virtuosity. But she is a virtuoso - a songwriter capable ofclassics like "Feminina" (which closed her set) that sit comfortablyalongside the tunes she sang by Jobim, Baden Powell, and Vinicius de Mor„es.' - Boston Phoenix

'Nights like this, with talent of such magnitude combining forces, don't come along very often.' - LA Times Review
