Joy Ellis is a London-based pianist, singer and composer who, since graduating from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, has toured all over the world playing jazz. Past gig highlights include Ronnie Scott’s and the Barbican Pit Theatre in London, the London Jazz Festival, the Cork Jazz Festival and No Black Tie Jazz Club in Kuala Lumpur. She was recently selected as one of fourteen emerging artists to work with Mercury-nominated singer ESKA on a composition residency in Manchester.

In November 2017, Joy released her debut album entitled 'Life On Land' on the F-IRE label. The album reflects her passion for jazz and improvisation, her love of groove and dance music, her classical roots as a pianist and the soulful, poetic aspects of being a singer-songwriter.

‘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 its own’.
Chris Ingham (MOJO)

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