NCMA Female Country Artist of the Year 2008
One of NZ’s best known Country Entertainers.
Over the years she has won many awards for singing and song writing including the coveted titles of NZ Country Music Association Songwriter of the Year in 1990 and 2008 National Female Country Artist of the Year.
Joy has released a total of nineteen albums since 1992 – most of which feature a great mix of classic country, easy listening, comedy and some of her award winning original songs.
Joy has travelled extensively throughout Australia, Germany, Belgium, Denmark and Norway and has featured on many showcases and Festivals in those countries.
She also travels the length and breadth of NZ with her one woman show and does an annual trek to the South Island every year.
Throughout the years Joy has organised shows, events and mini tours for many overseas entertainers and set up Stagecoach Promotions Ltd in 2004 to host a 13 show tour for American Entertainer, Kenny Dale which was hugely successful.
Kenny was a huge name in NZ during the late 1970’s, early eighties with songs like ‘Bluest Heartache Of The Year, Two Hearts Tangled In Love etc…
This was definitely a major highlight in her career working alongside an artist of his calibre.

StarBuddy Charitable Trust to raise money and awareness for Children with disability and special needs.

Charity as well as entertain with some great music.
