Born in Anderson Indiana, Joy Burnworth began singing for an audience when she was about 3 years old for the city bus riders as she and her Mom made their way into town. She loved that she could make them smile and laugh at this little thing singing so freely. This led to talent shows, drums & sax in the marching band, madrigals and swing choir which led to clubs gigs with a rock band at 16. Touring with Taft Attractions she saw the world from Spain to Iceland to Japan. Joy attended Berklee College of Music.
