“Joyce Lyons embraces jazz, the Great American Songbook, Broadway and pop, making each and every song truly her own. Her performances are both timeless and timely. Joyce is a true original.”
— Stephen Flaherty, Tony-Award winning composer of Broadway’s “Ragtime,” “Once On This Island,” and “Seussical”

​Sensational singer and actress Joyce Lyons makes a rare stop in Connecticut at Pizzeria Lauretano on Sunday Feb 26, before her CD release concert the next night at New York's famed Metropolitan Room. Ms Lyons was born to perform. Reared in Gaithersburg, Maryland, she headed to New York City where she worked with some of New York's finest musicians, from the exquisite writings of Dick Lieb, to the spellbinding arrangements of Lee Musiker (Tony Bennett's musical director) and the lyrics of bass accompanist Jay Leonhart. Joyce's cabaret shows are legendary, once described as “What Cabaret is all About!”, including her powerful tribute song for Billie Holiday.

“A beautiful voice! A song stylist whose interpretations strikingly highlight the words and communicate their meaning.”
— Bill Suter, Co-Producer, ‘Night, Mother, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Hurlyburly)
