about

San Francisco, CA - Much to the excitement of music aficionados around the world, we are delighted to present Joy Mover’s digital EP, ‘Sweets-100% Ear Candy.' Legendary Jazz Multi-Instrumentalist & Grammy-recognized Ira Sullivan was effusive in his praise of Joy’s talent saying, "To follow her in song is to exercise the mind. Sometimes easy and fluid, sometimes intricate and challenging, her voice is always… beautiful."

The 6 pieces in this assortment are each different-flavored versions of songs first heard on Joy's critically acclaimed self-titled 2012 debut.

As an added feature, these tracks have been sonically 'Sweetened' as in 'enhanced' with proprietary technology served up by Pro-MasterHD, co-invented by Award-Winning Recording/Audio Engineer and friend, Shelly Yakus, in L.A. (John Lennon's "Imagine")!!

Boston's Berklee College Assoc. Professor of Ensemble & Nashua Hall-of-Famer, John Paul (Guitar Virtuoso), Arranged, Produced, Engineered + played additional multi-Instrumental accompaniments on Bass, Drums, Percussion and Keyboards heard on Joy's originals “Midnight Oil," “Maria’s Song" and “Home Sweet Home.” John also co-Arranged "Have You Ever Loved?" as well as co-Composed the chorus!

Miami's own Mike Levine, Produced, co-Arranged + played Keys & Synth on Joy's original Salsa, “Have You Ever Loved?” which also features Mike's smokin' Synth-Flute and John Paul's Spanish Guitar solos!! Mike's Arrangement & Keyboards accompany a funked-out R&B version of “Till There Was You.” This 'un-wrapped' version also features Joy's big brother & Jazz Giant, Bob Mover's lyrical Tenor Sax accompaniment and iconic solo. Following Bob's solo, Ira Sullivan joins in (also on Tenor) and continues through the outro.

To deepen the the Miami-ties even further, another U of M Jazz Alum + distinguished 'Jazz-Doctor,' Dan Warner, PhD. (formerly with Al Jarreau ++), tops it all off with his Super-powered, killer-Guitar outro!

Along with the release of the "Sweets" EP, Joy has completed the music and legalese for her forthcoming 2nd full-length LP, 'Insight'. This 8 song collection of 5 originals & 3 covers is Arranged and Produced by Vinnie Zummo of NYC. Vinnie is best known for his seven-year stint as featured Guitar-Soloist with the Joe Jackson Band, in addition to his eclectic approach to music. Joy is now working toward the creation of the physical CD for production and distribution.

HERE'S WHAT THE PRESS RAVED ABOUT JOY'S 2012 DEBUT ALBUM:

“Vibrant energy, great phrasing, that special gift of connectivity that cannot be taught places this release in the upper echelon of vocal jazz release this year be they male or female.” - Brent Black, Critical Jazz

“Striking lyrical emotion and balance combine with uncanny talent in Joy's vocals and lyrics. Mix that up with flutes, saxes and horns by legendary multi-Grammy®-recognized Ira Sullivan, guitars by award winner John Paul, and a whole bus-load of top notch musicians providing a myriad of flavors to the tunes, and you've got a record that is deserving of serious credit. I will not be surprised at all to see the self-titled record make it to the top awards contests this year!” - C Bret Campbell, Midtnmusic.com

“Mover's voice rests comfortably in a niche between jazz and pop, rangy, trained experienced but with the flexibility to move into fun pop territory with credibility.” - Bill Copeland, Bill Copeland Music News

“Joy Mover has released a fine debut album. Her ability to fuse several styles serves her well and her ability to create lyrics and music look ahead to a bright future. It all adds up to a fine listen for anyone who wants to let their mind wander for a spell.” - David Bowling, Blog Critics

“Mover delivers one very special dreamy debut, full of gorgeous love songs and standards with new twists all forged by a sultry soothing vocal approach that's pleasing to the ear. Mover's debut is a well-conceived, well-done musical endeavor impressive on many fronts.” Edward Blanco, All About Jazz

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: Midnight Oil (HD-Sweets)
Midnight Oil
Music & Lyrics by Joy Mover

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 till 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: Till There Was You (HD-Sweets) No Rap
Till There Was You
Music & Lyrics by Meredith Wilson

There were bells on the 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 there were 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: Have You Ever Loved? (HD-Sweets)
‘Have You Ever Loved?
Music by Joy Mover & John Paul + Lyrics by Joy Mover
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: Maria's Song HD-Sweets)
Maria’s Song
Music & Lyrics by Joy Mover

First you must look…Then you can find
Gotta keep on searchin till you get what you need… all of the time
Go, it will be fine…

As the wind blows…Leavin the past behind
Gotta keep on movin gotta follow you 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, no place to hide

I’m here for you, heart and in spirit
Thyself be true…Listen and 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: Home Sweet Home (HD-Sweets)
Home Sweet Home
Music & Lyrics by Joy Mover

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
Good to be home sweet home
Good to be home sweet home
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 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, he just appears

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