Joyia’s introduction to music occurred at an early age. She began church choir at 6, and was put into classical vocal and piano lessons at 9 and 10.
However, her first introduction to the industry began at age 18 with electronic music. After attending a Swedish House Mafia concert at 16, she decided she wanted to produce electronic music and DJ; Djing her first show at Toronto’s once legendary club, The Guvernment, when she was 18. While the brief turn towards electronic music taught her fundamental elements of production in her mid-teens, she refined her musical style about two years ago when she returned to her early soul, jazz, and R&B influences. With a heavy focus on her vocals and songwriting, Joyia continues to compose and produce her own music with the help of producer HMLT of Toronto. Fans have strongly connected with the personal stories she shares through her music.
The solid repertoire under her belt is only the beginning for the rising star. She's received support from CBC Radio in Canada, Reprezent Radio in the UK, Complex, Sidewalk Hustle, and Exclaim Magazine. The fusion of jazz, hip-hop, and both live and electronic dark R&B sounds with Joyia’s refined vocal style is one that feels all too familiar yet indisputably new.
