Los Angeles-based Joyeur shares her notable debut album, How to Love Yourself and Not Destroy Everything. Joelle Corey, the creative mind behind the Joyeur moniker, says the collection explores human themes of hopefulness, perseverance, self-acceptance and self-sabotage—experiences that have guided her writing from the beginning of her artistry.
“I feel like I’ve torn the veil off my pain, fear, and insecurities to reveal power that can be used for good. Empowering and accepting myself in this way feels like a gateway to letting love in and to stop undermining my own wants and needs. I can be my own worst enemy.”
MORE ABOUT JOYEUR & THE ALBUM Joyeur is the musical moniker of LA-bred vocalist & songwriter Joelle Corey (aka Jo). With the help of longtime production collaborator Anna Feller, she makes deviant, beat-driven, feminist expression of alternative R&B & pop with songs that arouse movement and feeling as melodies belt through primitive bass-lines, buzzing synthesizers, and effortless hooks.
