Joy writes, “My original music reflects my passion for jazz and improvisation, my love of groove and dance music, my classical roots as a pianist and the soulful, poetic aspects of being a singer-songwriter.”

Here is a video:

‘Startling debut from British singer-songwriter who sets her cool, poetic meditations…to a suitably restless, sophisticated jazz soundscape. Highly original work that creates a world of it’s own.’ Chris Ingham, MOJO ★★★★

‘Fiery improvisations from Ellis who provides well-structured hard-bop solos on piano and Fender Rhodes.’ John Lewis, The Guardian ★★★★

‘Joy Ellis has a distinctive voice of her own. A very gifted player indeed. A triple threat with those pipes of hers, those fingers and her song-writing assets.’ Simon Redley, Music Republic Magazine ★★★★

There’ll be a backing choir for this performance made of of singers based around Ashburton. If you’d like to be part of it, send a message here or contact
