“for the LOVE of Music” with Nathen Aswell and Joani Bye, on air from May 16th
Joani’s music career began with a TV series called Banjo Parlour, where she performed with her two sisters (as The Bye Sisters) while attending the Music Faculty of the University of British Columbia. After leaving academia, she worked in TV, theatre, the recording studio, and with live bands, playing in night clubs, at festivals and at corporate events.
As one of Vancouver’s top studio singers, Joani’s powerful voice has been heard on albums by some of the music industry’s most popular artists such as Cher, David Bowie, INXS and Bon Jovi (including the massive hit “Livin’ On A Prayer”), to name a few, as well as on countless commercial jingles.
Joani spent several years touring schools and concert venues with The Euphorics, a vocal quartet that won the respected Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella competition in San Francisco in 1999. Although her main live project now is the 12-piece powerhouse “The R&B Allstars”, she is regularly invited to be a featured guest with The Motown Meltdown, Ladies Sing the Blues, and the Sisters of Soul.
In May of 2016, Joani took a course to become a certified SongShine instructor and is enjoying teaching courses in vocal empowerment to people with compromised voices due to stroke, Parkinson’s, other neurological issues, and aging.

Between live performances, studio work, tennis, yoga and her new SongShine venture, Joani keeps busy and happy. Life is good.
