  Joie Frye

Joie Frye was born on April 8th, 1951 in Stamford, CT, She was happily the youngest of four children with parents who were serious choral singers. They instilled in her a love of music at an early age. She began playing piano at seven, and while growing up, honed her harmony skills singing 60’s folk-rock with her sisters. During her high school years in New Jersey, Joie was inspired to become a performer after hearing the voice and piano of Laura Nyro, a NY-based singer-songwriter.

Upon taking spiritual initiation from A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami in 1971, Joie read her teacher’s book Krishna, a summary study of Srimad Bhagavatam (“The Beautiful Story of the Personality of Godhead”). She retold these histories in simplified form as songs for children (Krishna Pastimes, 1996). Her recent return to school for a music/English degree included writing and recording 14 original songs with lyrics again derived from the bhakti-yoga wisdom tradition—Bhagavad-gita As It Is.

Presently, Joie sings harmony and plays keyboard in her duo, Average Soul.
