Joyzza – If I Ruled The World

Joyzza & The Joyous Juice present their first single, « If I Ruled The World / She Song », released March 26th 2012 on Digital.

These tracks, recorded at Colorblind Studios in Paris, are part of a project including Joy Poirel, a Franco-British singer-songwriter, and the three musicians who gave her the great honor of playing with her; Florian “Flow” Pellissier on keys, Thibaut Brandalise on drums and Virgile Raffaeli on bass.

The B side, “She Song”, is an original track.
