Gioia Bruno (Gioia is pronounced JOY-ah) made her mark on the music scene as a member of the chartbusting Arista Records pop group Exposé. Gioia was born in Bari, Italy and raised in New Jersey. At the age of 16, she started singing in nightclubs with bands. While performing at the Gee Wiz nightclub in Miami, Florida, she was approached by Frank Diaz of Pantera Group Enterprises, who offered her a role in Exposé. Gioia accepted the offer and joined the group, along with Jeanette Jurado and Ann Curless.

One by one, Exposé started releasing platinum selling albums (Exposure and What You Don't Know) and numerous Billboard top-ten hit singles including: Come Go With Me, Point Of No Return, Let Me Be The One, What You Don't Know, Tell Me Why, and Billboard's #1 hit single Seasons Change. Gioia also made many appearances on such national television shows as David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Solid Gold, Arsenio Hall, The Grammy Awards, Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve, as well as MTV and VH1 Specials. Gioia was a guest VJ on the MTV network as well.

Gioia, one of the hottest performers on the dance club scene today, headlines gay pride events, circuit parties and dance clubs around the world. Gioia had amazing success with her Billboard top-ten dance club single From The Inside. The track, produced by Junior Vazquez, was featured on the Queer As Folk Season 3 series and soundtrack. In 2004, Gioia released her debut full-length solo album "Expose This" on KOCH Records to rave reviews. The CD features the Billboard dance chart hit Be Mine and club favorite I Was Made For Loving You. Gioia’s song Wreckin' My Nerves, produced by Chris Cox, was featured on the White Party USA Vol. 2. CD and was charted by some of the most influential DJ's as one of the top ten dance club hits of 2004.

In 2006, Gioia released Why Did You Call Me Again, co-written with Luis Martinez on Mix2Inside Records, which quickly became an international club hit. In September 2006, she temporarily stopped touring as a solo artist and reunited with Exposé with members Ann Curless and Jeanette Jurado after a 15 year hiatus. In the fall of 2007, Gioia began devoting time to her solo career again while still touring with Exposé. A remake of Jackie Wilson's 1967 hit Higher And Higher on Harlequin Records was released and was marketed to dance clubs.

Currently Gioia is working on a new studio album and Christmas album, along with touring full time with Exposé.
