Island Songwriter, performer and humorist Kevin Joyce will present an intimate solo cabaret show featuring Joyce on guitar and piano, singing original tunes written during his 25 years on Vashon, interspersed with fond stories, and personal reflections Joyce’s songs run the gamut from ballads to blues to R&B and alt country, all with his signature humor, intellect and disarming honesty. Tickets includes a copy of Joyce’s CD Say It.
Kevin is a singer/songwriter, actor, writer and director. Trained as a vocalist, he is a founding member of the University of Salamanca Chamber Choir (Spain), with whom he toured Europe as a soloist. Kevin composed, directed and performed vocal music scores for 10 productions with UMO Ensemble, a Vashon-based theater company. From 2000-06, he performed and directed with Teatro Zinzanni, singing alongside Joan Baez, among many others. He co-composed and starred in Rain City Rollers, a musical based on the 1936 Roller Derby, directed by Nikki Appino, and his award-winning solo musical monologue, A Pale and Lovely Place, created in 1996, was recently re-mounted in Seattle. Critics called the show “hilariously entertaining”. Since 2003, Kevin has run EnJoy Productions with his wife Martha Enson, creating customized shows for large-scale special events, that combine theater, specialized skill acts, music, comedy and visual entertainment. An avid singer/songwriter, his CD Say It features an all-star list of collaborating musicians, including Francine Reed, Stu Hamm, Eyvind Kang, and Hans Teuber and is available on iTunes.
