Joyce Vincent

Current Projects
The Vincent Sisters
Joyce and Pam are the Vincent Sisters. Together, they have been a part of famous musical groups, hit network television shows and also helped shape the sound of the Motown musical empire. Each has had a truely legendary carrer in the entertainment industry in their own right. They are highly respected performers and sought after for their exceptional vocal talents. They are currently very busy together and in their individual projects. They are also currently involved in several internationally touring productions. And in their free time - THEY SING!



Joyce and Pam are the vocalists on the latest project by bassist Mitchel Coleman, Jr. Its a remake of "THATS THE WAY OF THE WORLD" by EARTH WIND AND FIRE. They are joined along with good friend Jim Gilstrap on vocals. The track is produced by Herman Hollywood Dawkins. Hollywood also plays keyboards and drums and Kayta Matsuna is on guitars. The DJ Dave W in the UK has already picked up on this (once again) mega hit and is one of the first to play it on the air.




Here is the last time that Joyce and Pam got to see their long time friend, Grammy winning producer Don Davis. They did lots of session work for Don at United Sound Studio. They were re-united with him at the 'Heroes and Legends' awards. (From left to right: Pam Vincent, Joyce Vincent, Don Davis, Telma Hopkins) he contributed so much to their professional careers. They will never forget Don Davis. May he rest in eternal peace.




Joyce Vincent

Prior to the release of the new Former Ladies of Supremes - 'Supremely Yours II' project, we are going back on a legendary career. Joyce Vincent began her singing career as a teenager in Detroit as a member of the female vocal group called The Debonaires. By the late 1960's she would go on to sing behind so many of Motown Records hits that she would be among those who helped define its sound. She then went on to do session work that had her singing on some of the most memorable hit records ever made. She came back into the spotlight as a member of Tony Orlando and Dawn, one of the most famous acts of an entire decade with a string of chart-topping hits. We've included samples below of where it all started as well as a few of the many highlights from over the years.

Joyce Vincent and FLOS
They are completing the new Former Ladies of Supremes - 'Supremely Yours II' project. There will be a mix of around 15 tracks where all three ladies will sing a full lead and the rest of the album will be either triple leads or duets. The video below is a short preview of 4 of the songs.


Joyce & Pam's "Tony Orlando & Dawn" Revue
Joyce Vincent-Wilson and Pam Vincent decided to form their Tony Orlando & Dawn Revue as a tribute to their musical legacy. Their vision was to rekindle the essence, glamour, style and music of "Tony Orlando and Dawn." Performing alongside the ladies is the handsome and talented Miguel Herrera.



Tony Orlando and Dawn
Joyce and Pam are both members of the group Tony Orlando and Dawn. They have sold over 70 million records with three #1 songs. Received a Grammy Nominations and 3 American Music Awards. In the summer of 1974, CBS gave the group their own weekly television variety show. The show became a Top 20 hit and ran until December 1976 and featured a virtual who's-who of Hollywood legends.

Though Joyce has always appeared on the album covers, Pam's involvement in many other projects meant she could seldom appeare with them, but she is credited with the other members of Dawn on all of the group's albums.

BIO  
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Joyce Vincent began her professional career in show business as a young teen in the early 1960's. She first began in forming the girl's group known as "The Debonaires". They were high school students when they signed with Golden World records and released "Please Don't Say We're Through" b/w "A Little Too Long" in 1964. "Eenie Meenie, Gypsaleenie" the second single, came out in August of 1965, but by this time, Golden World's owner was involved in a very long negotiation to sell his masters and publishing to Berry Gordy. The next one, "How Is Your New Love Treating You" b/w "Big Time Fun", didn't appear until nearly a year later on June 6, 1966. A final Golden World single "C.O.D. (Collect on Delivery)" was released in October of 1966. Their next single was released on Solid Hit records with "Headache in My Heart" b/w "Loving You Takes All My Time" produced by George Clinton. Solid Hit's typist blew the spelling and missed the "E", so the single is credited as by the Debonairs. They tried one last time with "I'm In Love Again" before closing the book.

Now a Motown/Stax artist by default, Joyce began singing on sessions that proved more lucrative than being a recording artist. Her sister, Pam, soon followed in her footsteps and united with Joyce in the studio. The two quickly became a highly sought-after background vocals team. It was also during this time that they met with Telma Hopkins and within three years, would go on to perform background vocals on an enormously impressive list of some of the most legendary songs ever produced by Motown.

In 1970, Bell Records tapped Joyce and Telma to become "Dawn." They were paired with Tony Orlando and upon the success of "Candida" and "Knock Three Times", would go on tour in Europe. After Dawn's tour of Europe, Pam joined them in the studio where in addition to singing, she also arranged all the background vocals. Touring commitments with Aretha Franklin as well as her involvement in many other projects meant Pam seldom appeared with them, but she is credited with the other members of Dawn on all of the group's albums.

The group's next #1 single, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ole Oak Tree", was the most successful single in their career. "Say Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" followed, rising to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the summer of 1974, CBS gave the group their own television variety show. The show became a Top 20 hit and ran until December 1976. They also continued their string of hit singles reaching the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Charts for several more years highlighted by "He Don't Love You (Like I Love You)" which reached #1.

In 1991, Tony Orlando, along with Joyce and Pam, released "With Ev'ry Yellow Ribbon (That's Why We Tie 'Em)". A DVD compilation from their variety series was released in 2005, as well as the group's catalog of albums on CD. Tony Orlando & Dawn also reunited to release the "A Christmas Reunion" CD that same year. Publicity events for those releases marked the first time Telma, Joyce, and Pamela appeared together onstage.

On November 9, 2008, Joyce & Pam experienced another musical milestone when they appeared to accept their awards to be INDUCTED INTO THE VOCAL GROUP HALL OF FAME

Joyce and Pam continue their impressive careers as session singers as well as performing around the world. They are currently members of the 5-piece group Tour De 4Force, which also includes Jim Gilstrap, Theresa Davis, and former Supreme Scherrie Payne and released the album, "QUIET MOON". In September 2009, Joyce was added as a member of the Former Ladies of the Supremes, which is now billed as Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence. They often appear at special events such as the annual Heroes And Legends (HAL) Awards in Beverly Hills, California. They often work with their good friend Windy Barnes-Farrell - as members of Windy's Inspirational Voices of Free gospel group. They can be seen on the Christmas special at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, which is televised annually.

They have millions of fans internationally that continue to follow and support these talented sisters and are always eagerly waiting to support their next project.
