about

The journey from a deeply held dream to its realization is never easy, seldom rapid. After many long years of writing, producing and recording the music that is so very much a part of her DNA, Vocalist/Songwriter Joy Mover took her first giant step toward actualizing her lifelong musical vision with the summer of 2012 release of her self-titled debut, "Joy Mover".

To say that Joy’s roots are steeped in music is an understatement. Beginning with her great- grandfather, through her maternal and paternal grandparents and uncles, followed by her parents, brother and cousin, Joy’s family has long been populated with professional musicians and singers. Her father, Jimmy, like his father before him, is a trumpeter. He played with several big band greats of his era including Tommy Dorsey, Charlie Spivak, Horace Heidt, Ina Ray Hutton and Jerry Wald and has appeared on a number of national television shows playing his theremin, including “The Tonight Show,” “Ernie Kovaks Show” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” He also played the theremin background music for the horror classic “Lights Out” radio show hosted by Robert Stack. Joy’s mother, Barbara, a vocalist and actress in NYC at the time, was singing with Al Donahue’s big band when her parents first met.

Joy’s older brother, Bob Mover, a widely acclaimed saxophonist who has performed and/or toured with such jazz luminaries as Chet Baker, Charles Mingus, Jaki Bayard, Art Farmer, Kenny Barron and recently with Esperanza Spalding, has maintained a highly successful career as a solo performing artist and bandleader. Bob’s daughter, Emilie, is a singer/songwriter whose music has been featured on such popular TV shows as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Ugly Betty” and “Ghost Whisperer.” Joy’s cousin, drummer Jonathan Mover, Editor-in-Chief, “Drumhead Magazine.com,” has toured and appeared on over 300 recordings with such renowned artists as Joe Satriani, Alice Cooper, Aretha Franklin, Steve Howe, Sting, Fuel and The Tubes.

Emerging from such a creative familial environment, Joy is forging her own distinctive path on a journey to fulfilling her creative destiny. While honing her musical identity, Joy toiled in the corporate world, working in her spare time to develop her songwriting and maintain her vocal chops. As her business career progressed to greater challenges and responsibilities, Joy realized that the demands of the “day job,” which consumed significant amounts of time and extensive travel, would make it impossible to dedicate the attention necessary to manifest her primary passion as a songwriter/vocalist.

“I understood that performing/writing couldn’t be my primary pursuit if I wanted to support myself and the production/recording of my music in the studio.” Joy’s efforts gave her personal and creative autonomy unparalleled at this level. It allowed her to both express herself vocally while maintaining the integrity of her songwriting. Most of the songs on Joy Mover were created while Joy traveled for business, recording into a cassette while en route. “Music creation is a mysterious process. It’s fluid like an undercurrent running through an inner space where imagination, sound and rational thought connect and converge to ultimately become one in song.”

Joy has added a new dimension to her family’s musical legacy by revealing her own magical ability to craft and interpret her original songs, six of which see the light of day on Joy Mover. Those originals share space on the CD with her distinctive, inimitable take on such classic tunes as “Nature Boy,” “Till There Was You,” “Corcovado,” “Fever” and “Dream A Little Dream of Me.”

“My music reflects a strong respect and appreciation for great musicianship regardless of genre,” she says. “Although my jazz roots run deep, there are also threads of Latin, folk, soul and blues woven into the mix, creating a tapestry that may be considered ‘outside the norm’ in the traditional jazz world.”

Joy’s creative energy was so sparked when working on the material for this CD that she also composed a verse and updated some time-worn lyrics for the sultry “Fever” and wrote rap lyrics to introduce her funked-up rendition of “Till There Was You,” layering a thoroughly modern attitude harmoniously atop the romantic standard with no trace of discord.

That ability to transcend eras and interpretive styles is certainly one of the key elements that sets Joy apart from the multitude of talented vocalists working today. Another is her capacity for attracting incredible musical talent to assist in realizing her vision. The legendary trumpeter, flautist, saxophonist, flugelhornist and multi-Grammy© recognized Ira Sullivan (who has known Joy since her childhood) emerged to add his distinctive stylings on trumpet, alto flute and tenor sax to four tracks. Joy’s brother, Bob Mover, provides strong tenor sax support on two songs, offering up a stellar solo on “Till There Was You” and romping through “Nature Boy.”

Joy tapped the local music scene of her current hometown near Boston for several of the other players joining her on the CD. Guitarist/arranger John Paul, winner of a Billboard Song Achievement Award, New England Music Company’s Best Guitarist Award, and a spot among Jazziz Magazine’s “International Top Ten Guitarists,” takes on guitar, bass, synth and vocal duties throughout the project. Paul also arranged several tracks and co-wrote Joy’s instrumental chorus on the original “Have You Ever Loved?” Another New Englander, drummer Vinny Damaio, who has worked with such popular artists as Adam Ant, Jody Watley, Wilson Phillips and Dianna Krall, provides rhythmic support on Joy’s utterly gorgeous rendition of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Corcovado”/”Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars,” as arranged by John Paul.

Hearkening back to her days at the University of Miami’s Jazz Vocal department, Joy also makes use of a strong cadre of musicians from the South Florida musical arena, including pianist/arranger Mike Levine (Jaco Pastorious Big Band, Ed Calle); bassists Jamie Ousley (upright) and Javier Carrion (electric); saxophonist and flautist Billy Ross (James Brown, Julio Iglesias, Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme); and drummers Sammy Levine and Lee Levin (who has performed with Ricky Martin, Julio Iglesias, the Bee Gees and Jon Secada, and played on more than one thousand recordings for artists such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, Nelly Furtado, Enrique Iglesias and Kelly Clarkson). Guitarist Dan Warner (Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Enrique Iglesias) and percussionist Richard Bravo, whose work on over 800 recordings, including Ricky Martin’s MTV Unplugged and Shakira’s multi-platinum Hips Don’t Lie, has resulted in seventeen Grammy Award© Achievement Certificates, round out the stellar southeast contingent.

Joy’s decisions to combine her own striking original songs with distinctive interpretations of familiar material, and to surround herself with an assortment of players that both challenge and support her prodigious vocal talents is proof that while this eponymous CD may be her recording debut, she is an artist with a boundless career ahead of her. Joy Mover is, as veteran producer Vinnie Zummo (who is already on-board collaborating with Joy on her follow-up CD, "Insight") says, “a voice to be reckoned with.”

As timing is a major element in both music, as in life.... just a few months after the release of the album in the early winter of 2013, Joy's dad received a terminal diagnosis and that became 'the day the music died'. In fact, shortly after her father's passing, Joy lost her voice entirely for what seemed like forever, having to cancel previously scheduled interviews and other activities which required her voice- (which was everything)!!

Throughout this phase of both mourning and healing, Joy has continued to write and record new music. One of the challenges she faced was to improve the sound recording of the mixes based on feedback by some very credible sources, all saying the same thing - that her vocals needed to be more up-front and present in the mix.

While in the process of seeking out improvement-solutions, Joy was introduced to the multi-award-winning Sound Engineer, Shelly Yakus in LA, who is world-renown for his work on John Lennon's "Imagine', Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers multiple projects, Bob Seger + on the jazz-side has worked with Chick Correa+++. As it turns out, Shelly is also the co-inventor of a proprietary technology used by the major labels, called 'After-Master'. With this tool, Shelly was able to successfully bring up the vocals to a level commensurate with the best & hottest in the industry. Problem solved:-))

about

Joy Mover Hopkinton, Rhode Island

Listen closely. The next voice you hear will be a new one. Newer than new. A coy, edgy, imaginative voice. A shivery, fugitive voice, barely touching the notes, entering and departing the ear without leave. The voice belongs to Joy Mover. She is very different; provocative, thoughtful, interesting. To follow her in song is to exercise the mind. Her voice is always… beautiful ... more

Track Name: Have You Ever Loved? (Digital/HD)
Have you ever loved?
Have you ever needed someone?
Have you ever loved?
Have you felt your heart come undone?
Given everything
Heard the songs love sings
Tell me have you ever really loved someone?

Have you ever touched?
Have you really let yourself go?
Wanted them so much
That you really lost all control
Fallen in so deep
That you’re losing all your sleep
Tell me, have you ever really loved someone?

Destino searched all the stars to find us
Lit up the path behind us
Finally found our way
Primero it feels like the first time
Our hearts dance in the same rhyme
Now we awake in a brand new day

Do you still believe?
Do you still believe there’s someone?
Who could fill the need?
Is that something you’d still run from?
Could you now reveal?
What you truly feel
Tell me, have you ever really loved someone?

Destino searched all the stars to find us
Lit up the path behind us
Finally found our way
Primero it feels like the first time
Our hearts dance in the same rhyme
Now we awake in a brand new day

Have you ever loved?
Have you ever needed someone?
Have you ever loved?
Have you felt your heart come undone?
Flown upon love’s wings
To the destiny it brings
Tell me, have you ever really loved someone?


Do you still believe?
Do you still believe there’s someone?
Who could fill the need?
Is that something you’d still run from?

Baby can’t you see
You are everything to me
Could it be this endless search is done?
Could it be it’s me who’s your someone?
Track Name: Nature Boy (Featuring Bob Mover & John Paul!)
There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise
Was he

And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me
"The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return"

(instrumental interlude)

The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return
Track Name: Home Sweet Home (Digital/HD)
Counting the hours, counting the ways that I love you
And you…know it; yes you know how much I do
Enough for a lifetime with you
Enough for a lifetime with you

Spending the days, thinking of ways that I love you
And you…know it; yes you…know the way I do
Enough for a lifetime for two
Enough for a lifetime with you

Once in a lifetime
Just once in your life he comes along
And you belong
Once in a lifetime, just once in your life
You find him there, out of nowhere

And it’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home

Will you be there; will you always be there when I need you?
Cause you…know it, yes you…know how much I do
Enough or a lifetime or two
Enough for a lifetime with you

Once in a lifetime
Just once in your life he comes along
And you belong
Once in a lifetime, just once in your life
You find him there, he just appears

And it’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home sweet home
It’s good to be home
Track Name: Maria’s Song (Digital/HD)
First you must look
Then you can find
Gotta to keep on searchin
Till you get what you need
All of the time
Go, it’ll be fine…

As the wind blows
Leavin the past behind
Gotta keep on movin
Gotta follow your heart
Follow the signs
Go, enjoy the ride…

Head toward the sun
Out of the madness
These days are done
Over and gone
With the tide of sadness

Dream a dream oh Maria…
Dream a dream Maria
Visions you see oh Maria
Where you can be Maria

(Cause you’ve had your share of despair)
Just know that I’ll always care


Now that you’ll go
Made up your mind
I will always be there
But you know that the road
It has to wind
Go, this is your time

You heard the call
Echoing deep inside
When you hear those voices
You know that you can’t push
Push them aside
No place you can hide

I’m here for you,
Heart and in spirit
Thyself be true…
Listen and I know that you will hear it…

Dream a dream oh Maria
Dream a dream Maria
Visions you see oh Maria
Where you can be Maria
(Cause you’ve had your share of despair)
Just know that I’ll always be there….

This is your time, follow the signs, as the road winds, never goodbye….
See ya, Maria...
Track Name: If I Could Tell You (Digital/HD)
If I could tell you how I feel about you
If I could say exactly what I mean
I’d tell you that I couldn’t be without you
Your love painted a world I’d never seen

If I could show you how I feel about you
You’d see the rainbow of how much I care
The stars would shine so bright there’d be no doubt to
Knowing that my love is everywhere

I want you to know it right now
Need you to see
Time to be showing you how
You’re everything to me

Your body is my temple
Your soul my sanctity
All things in time do tell
You’re everything to me

If you could know how much I care about you
You’d feel it when I look into your eyes
I want to tell you but I don’t know how to
Let you see so you can realize

Thought that you’d know me by now
Want you to see, somehow
Hear me say it out loud
You’re everything to me

Your body is my temple
Your soul my sanctity
All things in time do tell
You’re everything to me

And even the full moon in the sky
Can’t hold a candle to the light
Burning inside you so bright…tonight
Track Name: Only the Wind (Digital/HD)
Only the wind knows why

Winds in a whisperin sky

Listen as it passes by 

Hissin and sighin

Whistlin and cryin

Hissin and sighin

Whistlin and cryin 



Only the wind knows why

Winds of a wonderin sky

Echo the moon on the tides
It falls and rise

Gets low and high

They fall and rise

Get low and high

And only the wind knows why

Yeah, only the wind know why

Only the wind knows why

Winds of a soft summer sky

Floating a butterfly

It flutters by

Sweet butterfly

It flutters by

Sweet butterfly

And only the wind knows why

Yeah, only the wind knows why



So roll down your windows and open up the door

Which way the wind blows no one knows for sure

Over the mountains pushin on the streams

To follow the rainbows that color in our dreams
Track Name: Till There Was You (Featuring Bob Mover & Ira Sullivan)
I used to walk around, puttin love down
I never found it, seen the beauty, heard the sound
The magic in a kiss, didn’t exist
Wishin on a fallin star
Only goes so far
Never knowin, where I was goin
Till you came along with a love so strong
That I never knew, till there was you darlin…

There were bells on a hill
but I never heard them ringing,
No, I never heard them at all
till there was you.

There were birds in the sky
but I never saw them winging
No, I never saw them at all
till there was you.

And there was music,
and wonderful roses,
they tell me,
in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn, and dew.

There was love all around
but I never heard it singing
No, I never heard it at all
till there was you…
Track Name: Midnight Oil (Featuring Ira Sullivan!)
When the week is over make the turn

Light the midnight oil and let it burn
Shake off those blues you had all day
Turn off the news, go out and play
Celebrate till dawn brings on the day

Get it while you can that’s what they say
Don’t have too much time to get away
What does it take to have some fun?
Lie on the beach, feeling the sun
Dancing in the moonlight with someone

So little time for ourselves,
Livin for somebody else
Day in and out, till we’re old and grey
Dance while we feel it
Spin till we turn it around
Day into night, work into play

Let’s join the party, under the moonlight
We’ll dance, beneath the stars and
We’ll still be burnin at midnight
Celebrating our lives

I declare the weekend’s here to stay
That’s the way I want it everyday

Shake off the blues, turn off the news 
You pay your dues everyday
Turn off the blues with your dancin shoes
Let yourself cruise through the day...
Track Name: Corcovado (Featuring Ira Sullivan on Alto Flute_)
Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from your guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window that looks out on Corcovado,
Oh how lovely

This is where I want to be
Here with you so close to me
Until the final flicker of life's ember.

I who was lost and lonely
Believing life was only
A bitter tragic joke, have found with you,
The meaning of existence, oh my love
Track Name: Fever (Featuring Ira Sullivan!)
You’ll never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that I just can’t bare

You give me… fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever…. in the morning
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the day time
Moon and stars shine through the night
I light up when you call my name
Cause I know you’re gonna treat me right

You’re givin me fever
When your near me
Fever afternoon delight
Fever…all morning
Fever all through the night

Everybody’s got the fever
That is somethin you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started long time ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same way
And when he put his arms around her
He said Julie baby you’re my flame

You givin me fever
When were kissin
Fever got a love so true
Fever, I’m on fire
Ain’t nothin I won’t do for you

Well you may never know how much I love ya
Even take my breath away
And every time you get right next to me

I get to burnin baby what can I say
You’re givin me fever
With your kisses
Fever when you hold me so tight
Fever …all day long, burnin up every night

Trumpet Solo by Ira Sullivan

Now you’ve listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Everybody get’s the fever
Be it fahrenheit or centigrade

You get the fever
When we’re kissin
Fever if you live you learn
Fever…Till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
When you’re near me I start to burn
What a lovely way to burn
Track Name: Dream a Little Dream of Me (Digital/HD)
Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singin in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

(Instrumental break)

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me, oh yeah…
Dream a dream of me
