"Less is more. If only a larger number of singers were capable of appreciating this simple fact. Joyce Elaine Yuille delivers an effortless, soulful performance on her debut album “Welcome To My World”. No vocal histrionics or melodramatic over exuberance going on here, just silky-smooth accomplished soul/jazz of astute quality"... Mike Gates (UK Vibe) **** 4/5
"Throughout, her vocals are powerful – demanding the listener’s attention, yet still at the same time they appear understated – like early Anita Baker."...Brian Goucher (UK Vibe) **** 4/5
Available on iTunes , Amazon, Bandcamp and all major online music shops.

The Soul of Porter
Cole Porter, one of America’s most reputable composers, was know for his urbane and witty lyrics along with a sinuous melody that verged upon a brooding quality. But an equally typical and equally recognizable Porter song would have a simple, bouncy melody and a lyric based on a long and entertaining list of similarities, opposite or contrasts.
He brought such an individuality of style that a genre known as “the Cole Porter song” became recognized.
Joyce Elaine Yuille teams up with her dedicated band Jazz Inc. to present a tribute with a twist “The Soul of Porter”. A careful selection of Porter’s classic standards, transformed into personal soulful versions, but still respecting the quality and genius of Cole Porter.
