SAGA: Do you like playing to British audiences?
JOYCE: “Oh yes, they are a great crowd. I get a lot of feedback from them and they are so excited especially when I am singing the classics. I love the look on their faces.”
SAGA: Has the music industry changed since you started out in the ‘80s?
JOYCE: “It has definitely changed…the music industry has changed a great deal since the ‘80s. In the '80s when I started out the majors had a lock on the artists. Now it’s a time for the independents. You can distribute and market your own music.”
SAGA: Is the music industry tough for women in the middle period of their life?
JOYCE: “Well it’s tough for women period. It’s a male driven industry and what I find is if you want to produce, you need to know your skills and it’s still a male driven industry.”
SAGA: What is your philosophy of life?
JOYCE: “My philosophy is to treat people good and live life to the fullest and to help people.”
