Sylvana Joyce and her band were founded in the summer of 2010 when Sylvana put out a Craigslist ad looking for musicians to bring life to her music. But don't let their status as ingenues fool you: six months after the band's inception, they had already received recognition from the industry, with a full week feature by MTV and OurStage as a "Needle in the Haystack" artist.

Sylvana's band has graced the stage over 100 times, including festivals, showcases, and live performances in NYC, New Jersey, and Boston. They have also garnered a following through their musical features at The Inspired Word, a spoken word series that has featured a slew of industry talent including Golden Globe Award winners, Grammy-nominated singers, American Idol finalists, and HBO Def Poetry stars. They've been nominated for "Best Band" and "Outstanding Music Video" at the 2010-2011 Hoboken Music Awards and are the winners of the 2012 No Contracts Needed Battle of the Bands competition hosted by UnRegular Radio, a popular online indie station based in Boston, MA. They have also recently opened for the jazz-rock trio The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann) as well as Nikka Costa.

Sylvana, a classically trained pianist and professional actress, leads a show-stopping performance with her powerhouse voice and natural star quality. Sylvana Joyce and The Moment's music is the perfect mix of gypsy rock, blues, and cabaret that has drawn comparisons to Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gogol Bordello, and The Dresden Dolls. They will be playing at The Underground Costume Party in Queens, NY, on October 27th, and will be celebrating their album release on November 14th at DROM NYC, a venue that commonly features Balkan, Gypsy, World, and Burlesque acts.
