"Listening 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 gem!"
-Michael Feinstein


"She's become one of the most respected interpreters of the Great American Songbook since Mabel Mercer, Sylvia Syms and Julie Wilson."
-Rex Reed

"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."
-Rob Lester, Talkin' Broadway.com

"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."

-Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"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."

Moments Like This

Joyce Breach with Mike Renzi, and Jay Leonhart, bass, Buddy Williams, drums, Jay Berliner, guitar, Harry Allen, tenor sax

"No unnecessary embellishment. The alchemy is simple. They interpret the subtext of a song in such a way that it evokes joy and pain (sometimes simultaneously), with a passionate emotional directness that pierces the heart." 
-Rex Reed
