Montreal we introduce you  the last I.M.Fly artist of the month for 2010, Miss Joyanne Thorne!

Question 1 What made you decide to pursue a career in singing?
From the time I was a little girl I was always singing in my school choir, I loved it I would watch amazing singers like Whitney Houston and say to myself that the stage is where I want to be.

Question 2 Which artist have influenced your musical style?
My all time musical influence is Whitney Houston.

Question 3 Fill in the blank. Music makes me feel____?
Music makes me feel " Alive "

Question 4 What was the concept behind your hit single “Be Free”.
The concept was to just live life to the fullest, don't ever look back if someone tells you "' you can't do it"" DO It don't listen to anyone just listen to your heart. In this world there is so much negativity and people that will put you down and honestly we have been given a life to make the best of it. So the reason behind the single is to just don't ever tell your self that you can't or that you won't succeed in anything that you put your mind to.

Question 5 Where do you see your musical career in 5 and 10 years from now?
In 5-10 years I see myself being the best artist musically that I can be. There is always room to learn and grow and with experiencing we always will achieve that. I can say the obvious thing which is performing,touring and living my dreams to the fullest but as an artist I am excited for the next 5-10 years because I will gain much more maturity as an artist.

Question 6 What artist(s) from Montreal and abroad would like to collaborate with?
From montreal I would love to collaborate with Karma Atchykah, I have been a fan and I really do like his style of music. International artist that is a hard question but I would love to work with J Cole.

Question 7 Being from Barbados, do you feel you have an advantage or disadvantage in entering the music industry in Canada?
Being an artist born in Barbados now living in Canada there is a slight advantage because I have been exposed to different cultures. In the islands we have our soca, reggae and dub. I know that people really love to see new artist develop from all over the world. but an artist from the Caribbean brings a certain flavor to there music.

Question 8 What future projects are your currently working on?
Right now I am wrapping my E.P. I think its very important to choose the right music to fully introduce yourself to the industry.

Question 9 When can we see you perform live?
My next performance will be at Tapis Rouge (December 23, 2010), the event is being held by Morburn Music and Reason Entertainment. All proceeds from this event will go to the Sun youth Organization so please come out and support.

Question 10 What is your definition of FLY?
My definition of I.M Fly is whatever makes you happy and comfortable in life. If you look in the mirror and like what you see and smile in my books your fly.
