    Joyce Silveira Moreno, commonly known as Joyce, is a Brazilian singer/songwriter, as well as an accomplished guitarist and arranger. She premiered in the late 60s, and since then has recorded over 20 solo albums, and appeared on records with such artists as Elis Regina, Toninho Horta, Vinicius de Moraes, and Yoko Kanno. In recent years she has collaborated extensively with João Donato. Much of Joyce's work has been compared to the early boom of the jazz fusion scene in the United States. She got her start in music by listening to her brother play the guitar, as well as listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis and Billie Holiday for inspiration on emotions conveyed in music. Joyce refers to her music as "MCB" (Creative Music of Brazil), rather than MPB. She has recorded many movie and TV soundtracks, and is creator and host of the music-infused television program "Cantos do Rio". She has also written a memoir, Fotografei Você na Minha Rolleyflex. In it, she discusses her experiences in the bossa nova and MPB movements, providing a fascinating portrait of fellow musicians, including João Gilberto. She worked with Yoko Kanno in the Vol. 1 of the soundtrack of the anime Wolf's Rain. « hide
