Sylvana Joyce & The Moment []
"Sylvana Joyce is an absolute force of nature. She needs to be seen to be believed...She is a general. She is an emperor. She has been sent from some other dimension to show us the way." - Jimmy Lloyd, NBC

"We were being blown back by the force of her voice and stage presence while at the same time being drawn toward and into the magic of her unique stage personality. People were going crazy by the time she finished." - Concert Review by Laureate Poet Michael Lally

"Equal parts dynamo and siren swirling beneath a petite Eastern European exterior, lead singer and keyboardist Sylvana is basically a human carnival." -Huffington Post

Sylvana Joyce and her band, The Moment, are a dynamic interplay of Blues Rock and Balkan Folk music that have gotten audiences of all ages and backgrounds raving about their stellar live performances. SJATM's supreme musicianship, coupled with lead singer/pianist Sylvana Joyce's on stage presence (who have led some to draw comparison to Janis Joplin, Grace Potter, and Bette Midler), make them one of the most exciting new acts to come on the music scene. SJATM have graced the stage over 200 times nationwide, opening for such names as Nikka Costa, The Aristocrats, Caravan of Thieves, and Lettuce. They are also proud to announce they've been accepted to a myriad of prestigious festivals this year, including SXSW, CMJ, Musikfest, Montauk Music Festival, Culturefest, MidPoint Music Festival, Holy Smokes Music and Arts Festival, and have placed in the Top 5 on Blues/Gypsy Rock Charts for NYC on ReverbNation for 7 straight months. 

Both Sylvana and her band have won several awards, including 2012 No Contracts Needed Battle of The Bands competition hosted by UnRegular Radio Boston, The 5th Annual Ultimate Singer-Songwriter Competition in NYC, and MTV's Needle in The Haystack. They've also been nominated for several Hoboken Music Awards for three years (2010, 2011, 2012). 

A performance of their single, "The Break" was featured on the NBC TV Show "Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase":
