vogelJoy is an unconventional, five-piece family band that is continuously growing — musically and in height! Based in small town Southwestern Ontario this family of five has built a love of music and family with each other and their fans. Their independent, sincere, and imaginative song writing elevates young listeners and is an absolute joy to share.
Banding together in 2009 vogelJoy has self produced 2 albums and some noteworthy singles for young families. Their joy of performing across Canada at fairs, festivals, street corners and parks is a true thrill and a huge honour as these experiences have been foundational for the growth of their performances and a springboard for their children’s future pursuits. For the past few years the band has self produced wonderfully fun music videos to reflect their unique and heartwarming approach to children’s music and storytelling.
The chemistry between the members of vogelJoy is undeniable — they’re a family! Terry the Dad: epic songwriter and all around plays-everything musician, Kimberly the Mom: organizer, encourager, uke player and singer of melodies, Louisa the oldest: beautiful vocals and independent harmonies, Oliver the middle child yet oldest boy: superb vocals and very fun stylings, and Sophie the youngest: brilliant melodies and huge humour. Their independent spirits all brought together to sing and play is joy-filled and undeniably inspiring.
