Lady Joya's talents as a Singer/Songwriter are featured on The Red Hounds CD entitled "Red Hounds and Friends". This studio project only increased her desire to perform onstage.

Lady Joya has expressed great gratitude to the family members of the late Ms. II Juicy as they have embraced and welcome her to The Juice Family. Joya means to REJOICE. This is the experience Lady Joya want you to encounter on the dance floor every time you attend a "Juice" party.
