Joanna Saric aka JOANNA JOYS (stage name) is a professional singer/songwriter with vast experience in live stage performance and recording studio work. After many years as a vocal performer doing covers in various music styles and genres such as Pop, Rock, Disco, Funk, R’n’B, Soul, EDM etc., Joanna has developed her own musical style and expression and has discovered the true meaning of inner transformation triggered by the power of music. Her musical expression is mostly inspired by up-beat music, particularly Disco-Funk classics and Pop music of 80’s.
Joanna sees music as a specific communication tool while emphasizing the importance of deep basic emotion built in the act of music creation as well as the vocal and instrumental interpretation. A great performance requires the transfer of the inner emotion felt by the artist/performer that uplifts the emotional state of mind of both the performer and the listener, and that’s exactly where she shows her mastery. Joanna has always been very passionate about human psychology, education and the anatomy of human existence. Her love of music and her hunger for knowledge has taken her on the path of self discovery and encouraged her creativity in many different directions. Joanna graduated in 2010 MA in Andragogy (Adult education) at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade.
