Joy Dragland is a singer songwriter living in Norway via Brooklyn.

Raised in the snowy midwest, Joy began writing songs at an early age to entertain her siblings on the way home from church.

The artist she idolised most as a child was Dolly Parton, as Parton exhibited both musicality & glamour.

She started performing in small coffee shops in Wisconsin, until she met co-conspirator Leo Sidran with whom she formed pop duo Joy & the Boy. Together they wrote and recorded three studio albums & toured globally, charting in the top 40 in Spain with their cover of Marvin Gaye´s "Let's Get it On".


As a solo artist, she has written, recorded and produced a full length album, an ep and various single releases. She is a guest artist on over 20 albums, including providing vocals on Escort´s critically acclaimed club hit "Cocaine Blues".


Joy is also an accomplished jingle singer, with placements on ads for Converse, Huffington Post, Glade and Guerlain. She is featured on The Voice Norge (Norway) 2024.
