Joyce Sims - August 6th 1959 - October 14th 2022

Joyce Sims was a multi-talented singer/songwriter behind the club classic soul anthems “(You Are My) All And All” and “Come In To My Life”.

Joyce Sims was also multi instrumentalist who studied music at college,  Joyce had her first hit single in 1987 with “(You are my) All And All”, topping the R&B and Dance charts in the U. S. and the pop charts around the world. Her debut album “Come Into My Life” was certified as a gold disk in the UK and charted the US Billboard R&B top 10.

Joyce Sims continued touring and festival appearances around the world have ensured that “Come Into My Life” and “All And All” have remained much loved club classics, and can still frequently be heard playing to packed dance floors in clubs around the world.

Joyce Sims’ music has been recorded and sampled by such diverse musical icons as jazz vocalist Randy Crawford. Sampled by R&B singer Angie Stone, rapper Snoop Dogg, and featured in the film “Species.”

As well as continuing to tour, particularly in the Uk where she was much loved, Joyce continued to record and released her last single “what you won’t do for love” in July 2022.  She had planned to put out a new album in the autumn of 2022.

I knew Joyce for around 5 years initially collaborating on an original song and later having the honour of producing her final release. Joyce was an incredibly important artist breaking new ground crossing over soul with the emerging dance music scene in the 80’s.  As a person she was a warm and humble lady who was always gracious and a joy to talk too. Super talented with so much more amazing music to give to the world. I’m still processing the loss of Joyce and offer my deepest condolences to Errol and the rest of her family and friends. Rest in Peace Joyce ♥️ …

Joyce, you were just in London and Manchester 6 weeks ago.  So many plans.  The new album was due and I had made tentative enquiries for additional dates around your scheduled visit next May 2023.  It was a privilege and an honour to be able to describe you as a colleague and friend.  11 years of touring and each time we were on the road, although I didn’t always get it right you were always a joy to host.  The excitement of the crowds in the UK was always something to behold.  On a personal level, All in All was the soundtrack to my youth, the floor filler when I first started to attend parties as a young teen, so working with you was a full circle moment.  I was always humbled when you and Errol would reach out to check in and ask how family were doing, even when in the UK with other promoters.  I really appreciated that which is a rare commodity in today’s business.  I’m still processing as I type that I won’t be able to work with you again.  My thoughts are of course with your immediate family amd close friends. My sincere and …
