About Joyce

In 1967, at age 19, Brazilian singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joyce changed the face of Brazilian music when her song "Me Disseram" caused controversy as the first song by a Brazilian woman to reflect the first-person feminine perspective. In 1980, she released the classic Feminina, which influenced several generations of women musicians. Moreno has issued more than three dozen albums and penned 400 original songs, many of which have been covered by top-tier artists globally. Further, she has collaborated with Brazilian music royalty including Dori Caymmi and Vinicius de Moraes. Later outings such as Hard Bossa, the smash Just a Little Bit Crazy, and Samba-Jazz & Outras Bossas (with jazz-drumming husband Tutty Moreno) have become staples of Euro club culture. Since releasing 2009's Aquarius with pianist João Donato, she has performed under her married name. In 2020, she issued 50, followed by the collaborative single "Casa Que Era Minha" with Ivan Lins and Marcos Valle in 2021.
