Born in Rio de Janeiro, four-time Grammy nominee, singer, composer, arranger and instrumentalist Joyce Moreno has over 400 recordings of songs she authored and interpreted from the greatest names in Brazilian popular music—from Elis Regina and Gal Costa to Milton Nascimento, Sergio Mendes, and countless others. Beyond Brazil, Moreno’s work has been recorded by Annie Lennox, Wallace Roney, Omara Portuondo, Black Eyed Peas, David Sanchez, Jon Lucien, Claus Ogerman, Gerry Mulligan, Till Brönner and Flora Purim, to name a few.
Moreno’s compositions have been featured in film soundtracks such as The Player by Robert Altman and Legally Blonde by Robert Luketic, Japanese anime Wolf’s Rain, in partnership with composer Yoko Kanno, TV programmes and theatrical productions. Her music was embraced by DJs all over the world in the early ‘90s, when her track Aldeia de Ogum became a massive worldwide dancefloor hit, with numerous remixes.
Moreno is best known for pioneering first-person, feminine voice in Brazilian music which paved the way for countless other artists. She received four nominations at the Latin Grammys in 2000, 2004, 2005 and 2010, and numerous awards, worldwide and in Brazil. To date, she has released 39 personal CDs and two DVDs, in addition to numerous compilations and guest appearances. Her album recordings and annual tours including the Japanese Blue Note circuit take her all over the world but she never forgets her feminine Brazilian identity.
In 2015, her musical work was honoured in Joyce Meets Berklee—a concert where she performed with a 25-piece orchestra at Berklee College of Music.
