to Joyce sing is always a powerful and joyous experience. Her connection
with the lyric is deeply personal, her voice is pure honey and the
caressing humanity in every note is truly special. 0dds
and Ends is another perfect vocal
"She's become one of the most respected interpreters of the Great American Songbook since Mabel Mercer, Sylvia Syms and Julie Wilson."
|"Joyce Breach, a beloved longtime fixture of New York's cabaret circuit, is a quintessential keeper of the flame. She gently nudges ballads into the pockets where they belong. On up-tempo numbers, she swings steadily but without ostentation."|
-Stephen Holden,The New York Times
"In Moments Like This, as in previous moments in recording studios, she is in the moment, getting to the heart of a song with sincerity and affection. She lets them live and breathe and doesn't make it about weeping and wailing. With excellent taste in all things musical, her choice of song is often an under appreciated one or a standard neglected in recent years. There's delicacy, there's integrity, there's depth."

Reviews from the Don't Tell Mama (2014)
"Her refined taste in largely older material from the American Songbook coincides with an appealing and warm, easygoing personality. There is not a pretentious or self-pitying phrase in her interpretations."
"Joyce Breach, on stage in cabaret, offers a master class in performing a ballad. She doesn’t just sing a song; she tells its story with warmth and simplicity, as if its characters were in the room, their moments and feelings unfolding then and there."
