For nearly two decades, Joyce Partise has entertained audiences large and small throughout the West Coast. From intimate cocktail parties, weddings, and business gatherings, to major conventions and weekly appearances at the Montage and Beverly Hills Hotels, Joyce brings sultry style, flair and excitement to those she entertains. She has an impressive ability to tell a story through a song, and her music, sung in both Portuguese and English, creating an air of sensuality, romance, and allure that reaches the hearts of those who hear her. Since childhood, Joyce has been most influenced by Brazilian Bossa Nova, Samba, and the timeless standards of the American Songbook, and she features classics from Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, and other Brazilian legends during each of her performances.
