Equally special and unusual are the hodge-podge of seemingly disparate players who have come together to form her band – a classically trained violinist, a Berklee guitarist with an affinity for metal, a funk bassist/operatic tenor, and a jazz drummer – all with a touch of their styles swirling in the mix. Stranger, still: with the exception of the violinist, a childhood friend from her early days playing chamber music in Manhattan (Sylvana is an accomplished and conservatory trained pianist, herself), all were found on Craigslist. The headline, “Do you want to make playing original music your day job? Join my band.”
It’s that confident headline that can sum up the potential for the group. Only six months since the band’s inception, they were winning international competitions and national coverage from MTV. Their debut record, “For You, Comrade” received critical acclaim from Celebrity Café and Shakefist Magazine, being toted as “one of the top ten indie records of 2012”. Having been accepted to larger festivals such as SXSW, CMJ and Musikfest, the band continues to tour, with regular performances in Boston, Asbury Park, Danbury, and Philadelphia.
Their trajectory continues as they prepare for their biggest performance yet. After their sold out live taping of "Heavyhead" in December 2016, Sylvana is "upping the ante" with a transformative set design and video installation to add to their emerging an professionally lit production.
It seems that if you haven’t already become enamored with Sylvana Joyce + The Moment, you will be, soon.
