Joyelle Brandt



A modern-day Renaissance woman, Joyelle has created an album of original music, written multiple books for children and adults, and performed as a poet, musician, and speaker. Her combined education in Vocal Jazz, Gender Studies, and teaching has informed a career where the creative arts are used to inspire personal healing and social justice. Joyelle currently works both in the arts and in trauma recovery, helping families break inter-generational cycles of abuse. Joyelle’s next children’s book Princess Monsters from 1 to 10 will be launching Fall 2020 with Three Ocean Press.
