Everytime I Look at You
Joy began her piano training when she was six years old and began vocal study to her musical education at seven. Her passion for music inspired her to self-discipline and hard work. She devoted herself to classical music and opera study. She was awarded the distinguished Outstanding Achievement of Musical Arts Award and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. She has performed many concerts and recitals, including private engagements at exclusive venues such as concerts under the stars, and private parties for a past Governor of New Jersey and many more. She spent many hours entertaining listeners at leading area hotels. She performed her arrangements of old standards, pop selections, Broadway favorites and classical pieces. In addition, Joy also composes her own music. She has recorded one of her own selections entitled "Inspiration" on this album. Her fans have eagerly anticipated the release of this CD. A message from the Artist: I'm very excited about this Album because in my music, I convey the intensity of both memory, and fantasy. Through my music, I am telling personal stories about myself, my life and my passions. These stories are about love. For example, in the selection, "I Can Dream, Can't I?", I try to express the anticipation of love, "With You I'm Born Again", the tenderness that reflects the joy of love, and the very haunting, "If You Go Away", portrays the loneliness of the loss of love. I hope that the listener will feel the same emotions as I have tried to portray them and infuse the music with the feelings that I felt. Every song is a song from someone's past, present or future. From my heart, Joy Appel.
