Not Nara, not Elis, not Bethânia nor Marisa. Brazil's biggest female singer/songwriter is Joyce!

Joyce, in her international career, has recorded 21 solo discs and has had almost 300 recordings of her songs by some of the greatest names in Brazilian and international music, such as Flora Purim, Milton Nascimento, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria Bethânia, Elizeth Cardoso, Simone, Wallace Roney, and others.

Her compositions have been featured in television, theater, and film soundtracks, such as The Player by Robert Altman.

Touring internationally every year, she consolidated herself as an original artist with a distinctive voice and a personal compositional style predominantly celebrating her feminine condition. (AMG)
