There’s no sound like the sweet sound of soul music. Joyce Rising and her band are dedicated to revitalizing the Motown Sound with a feel-good sound and driving funky, bluesy beats. With story-telling songs and rich backing vocals, modern samples and the alto saxophone, Joyce Rising brings her own sound to the stage.
Joyce Rising is a singing lady with lots of passion and writes and produces her own songs in a creative way. Joyce does it all: “She brings her own PA system, mixes her own songs in her home studio and does the music video editing”. Her mother was a Gospel singer and inspired the 4 year old Joyce to go singing. In 2006 Joyce received her diploma from the Rotterdam’s Conservatory of Music.
Joyce is a real go-getter and is currently performing live shows with her band in The Netherlands. With this band Joyce Rising performs her own written soul/pop songs. The band played at a couple of successful festivals like the Kanaalconcerten with among others the famous saxophonist Candy Dulfer. Joyce her songs are about her own life. With songs like “Mr. All About Me” en “You Can’t Control Me", she does not mince her words. Joyce wants to inspire people to live from their own power within and to be proud of who you are.
Joyce Rising is strongly influenced by singers like Celine Dion, Amy Winehouse and Aretha Franklin. On stage you’ll hear old soul grooves in combination with strong horns and a funky sometimes rocky guitar. Together with the grooving double bass the show is complete. “The Joyce Rising – show” is swinging, energetic, soulful, full of passion and wayward. Besides soul music, Joyce Rising brings a couple of pop-latin songs and some well-known covers by James Brown and Amy Winehouse. At the moment Joyce is working on a new EP which will be released in 2017.
