ALL ABOUT JOY
Joy Chapman, Guinness World Record holder for lowest female vocal note. A ”made in Canada”, country music singer/songwriter from the Fraser Valley, BC, has gone viral world-wide since her world record. She has been featured/interviewed on National news and numerous TV shows as well as radio, magazines, and media world-wide. Everyone is fascinated with the "low note" and is trending with show hosts and fans all over attempting Joy's "vocal limbo challenge" how low can you go. She is now being referred to as the new "bass queen" or as she likes to sign, "Joylow".
Her musical background started as a child in church and school choirs, church soloist, and having a Mother who was a music school teacher. Joy played both guitar and piano growing up but loved vocalising the most and was mainly influenced by the surrounding farm animal friends, with whom she would talk back to every day, imitating their vocals. She found her first taste of stardom being selected from over 5,000 entries to perform mainstage at the PNE.
She continued to pursue her musical career performing with various local groups and progressing to developing her own tribute show impersonating the likes of Cher, Shania, Patsy Cline, and many others. Eventually, she began touring across Canada with other bands and tribute artists, working with Legends International from 2014-2020 (till Covid shut-down).
Her main goal was always to pursue her own songwriting, as she had written a lot of poetry with a published work “Life’s Metamorphosis”. She went on to write a short commercial and song for David Foster’s Organ Donation Foundation where they loved her concept of a relay race, “Pass it on, pass it on if you pass on. If you’re not able to finish your race, get someone else to take your place and pass it on!”
Joy says her sound is a bit unique and laughingly says she's thinking of starting her own "genre" retro-modern country. She feels that country may have lost its way a bit, and perhaps, the pendulum needs to start returning back at least to the middle between the old and new. This is her unique attempt at getting it there. Joy's songs showcase both her humour and her reflective, inspirational sides. Footprint In My Songs album gives you the rollercoaster of emotions from having you laugh to shedding a tear. She released 14 singles spring 2021, in addition to the release in November 2019 one track, “Santa Claus Drank All My Beer Last Night”. Complete 15 song album "Footprint In My Songs" expected to release June/July 2021.
She was invited personally to the 2017 Rock Godz Hall Of Fame Awards to walk the red carpet with Phil Chen and invited to sing on stage with Lita Ford, Kenny Aronoff, Phil Soussan, Gary Hoey, Howard Leese, Bruce Kulick, Dustin Brayley, Gregg Bissonette, Chris Chaney, Carmine, Appice, Lee Sklar, Stephen Perkins, Elliot Easton, Tobin McCauley, Frankie Banali, Rory Kaplan.
