Gospel, jazz, soul and blues are the backgrounds of Joyce Elaine Yuille. Starting her venture into the world as a runway model she eventually found her true path The union between her soul, love of music and God given talent as a singer. Her admiration for divas such as Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, Etta James, Carmen McRae, Ella Fitzgerald and all time favorite, Phyllis Hyman, have influenced her to create a personal style that is respectfully appreciated and admired by her audience. Always fearless on stage no matter what the circumstances, her heart and soul are the keys during her performances, her quick wit, sassy style and ability to touch the public profoundly, always leave them with a "special feeling" and something memorable to take home.
Joyce has been fortunate to work with many international and italian artists and served as a background vocalist with the celebrated disco diva Gloria Gaynor with whom she toured with for six years. There have also been a few appearances on Italian television and with her extensive past role as a studio singer her voice has been featured on numerous dance tunes, commercial and radio jingles from 1999 until 2014. Nonetheless, Joyces smooth and more profound true vocal talents are far more easily recognized and appreciated in jazz, which is her primary genre and blues/soul where she has demonstrated her more get down "nitty-gritty" style.
Her musical journey continues with an intense charisma that gently but forcefully touches and falls deep into the hearts of all who listen. Her vocal style, sultry wittiness and on-stage energy is sure to capture the attention of one and all.
