Joyce Yuille

Real Name:
Joyce Elaine Yuille
Born and raised in the East Harlem section of New York City, Joyce is a multi-faceted vocalist, performing in all genres and styles.

At the age of 16, Joyce entered into one of the most prestigious high schools in New York City, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School Of The Music and the Performing Arts where she began to focus on studying music. Extremely influenced by diverse styles of music such as R&B, Gospel, Classical, Jazz and Latin music. Her admiration of Billie Holiday, Etta James, Sarah Vaughan, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Deniece Williams and Phyllis Hyman, whom she's been vocally compared to, have helped her to create a personal style that is respectfully appreciated and admired by her audience and peers.

After moving to Milan in 1989, she joined with two musicians and they formed the group 3*D. The group recorded a cover version of Toto’s Georgy Porgy remixed by JP “Bluey” Maunick of Incognito and by Steve Lyon. With the latter remixing the whole project entitled Deep Inside. Although the release received success in the U.S., unfortunately the group faced label difficulties and was forced to fold.

Joyce has had the opportunity to work with many well-known Italian and international artists such as Paolo Conte, Randy Crawford, Donna Summer, Laura Pausini, Elio E Le Storie Tese, Toto Cotugno, Andrea Mingardi, Eddie Floyd, Ronan Keating and Gloria Gaynor with whom she has a continuing role as a backing singer during her Italian tours and performances. There have also been a number of television appearances on Italian television such as Canale 5, TMC and Rai. She has also been featured on a number of commercial and radio jingles and in 1999 she was chosen by the advertising agency B. Communications of Milan to sing the lead on the Christmas jingle for Bauli Panettone di Verona. It was a Gospel version of Silent Night which would eventually lead her back to her Gospel roots.

Joyce has also expanded into other areas of music such as House (dance) and her voice is featured on numerous singles, some of which reached the top European Dance charts. However, her smoother and earthier vocal talents are easily recognized in Jazz which is her primary genre of music and style. Still residing in Italy, Joyce continues to demonstrate her talents performing and participating in numerous Jazz & Blues festivals in Italy and around Europe, such as the Umbria Jazz Festival, Rapperswil Blues & Jazz Festival, Trasimeno Blues, Mantova Music Festival and many others.

Not straying far from her Gospel roots, she has formed the group Gospel Times who have already proven their excellence during many performances in diverse music festivals.
