Paul K. Joyce

Paul K. Joyce is a Bob the Builder that became the bestselling single of 2000 in the UK and Australia.


Earlier in his career, Joyce played in a synthesizer trio, Sense, produced by Soft Cell's Dave Ball. Following tours with Depeche Mode and Kim Wilde they had a hit in France with their single, "Jamie".

His first television work was the animation Coconuts (ITV 1990).

Joyce also composes for the theatre, notably for a staging of Quatermass and the Pit in a UK quarry in 1997. Joyce has staged his oratorio version of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen at London's Barbican Hall (2003), Cadogan Hall (2004), and the Hall for Cornwall (2011). A dramatized television production of The Snow Queen featuring Joyce's music was commissioned by the BBC; it premiered on BBC One on Christmas Day in 2005 and proved to be the most popular children's show of the year.[3]

He collaborated with Steve Howe on Howe's solo album Time, released November 2011 on Warner Classics.[4]

Joyce is co-executive producing a new science fiction movie, Non-Stop, based on the novel by Brian Aldiss.
