Jossie’s dream has always been to produce a Grammy worthy mainstream CD and in 2005 Jossie turned her attention to starting her own musical publishing and production company and founded Song Catcher Productions. Through Song Catcher Productions Jossie composes, arranges, produces and publishes her own music as well as the music of other song writers and singers. Song Catcher Productions brings together many talented artists, musicians and professionals. Having established Song Catcher Productions she composed and produced the music and lyrics of her dream collection of songs, Nada Normal (Nothing Normal), a collection of songs loaded with Jossie’s passion for Latin music and her high powered energy, including all of the essential Latin flavors: pop tropical, regatone, hip-hop and rythym and blues mixed with salsa and cumbia undertones carrying the rythyms. Nada Normal includes Panamanian rythyms such as “Murga de Panama”. Each of the ten songs is unique and each can stand alone as potential hit records anywhere in the world.
Jossie brought together the best musicians in Miami and the Dominican Republic and produced and recorded Nada Normal at famous recording studios in the Dominican Republic (Chi Chi Peralta’s Sterling Studios), Vancouver, Canada (Armoury Studios) and Miami (Cuero Productions). In the Dominican Republic Jossie used the professional chorus group “Agrupacion 440” of Juan Luis Guerra. Nada Normal was mixed at Armoury Studios in Vancouver and Sounds Right in Miami as well as Sterling Studios in the Dominican Republic. Mastering was done by Vlado Meller of Sony Music Studios in New York.
The fusion of her contagious rhythm, domination of the stage, unique quality and range of her voice and the sensuality of her body make Jossie a complete artist and there is no question that she is headed to “La Luna” (the moon). The world stage is just around the corner. With Nada Normal, Jossie is poised to take her position at the top of the Latin musical charts. Follow Jossie's magic.........
Her exotic and unique voice and her Heart of Gold have charmed the Latin Music world and beyond…A combination of well known Latin Rhythms with Fire and Passion…
Jossie was born in the beautiful rural town of La Paz de Chame, Republic of Panama.
Since Jossie was six years old she discovered her love for music and dreamed of becoming a singer. Growing up in Panama, Jossie led the school band and participated in many musical events in church choirs and school and community festivals. She was gifted with the same talent and prodigious voice of her mother, Doris Vergara, a distinguished Panamanian folklorist who transmitted to Jossie her love for music. Since childhood she carries in her blood family values and sensibility waking up her concern for helping people and showing her generosity. The chorus of the church constituted her first musical level experience granting her the opportunity of expressing her feelings and intense love for music.
Her other passions are horseback riding, musical instruments and writing songs. Jossie loved to go fishing friends and family.
In 1994 Jossie’s dream of becoming a professional singer brought her to the United States. While performing at venues throughout the world, Jossie studied music, voice, dance, choreography and acting through prominent international teachers at renowned Music Schools and Universities in New York, Miami and Atlanta and soon after she marked the successful beginning of her professional singing career, participating at important musical festivals in Latin America.

Jossie composed, co-arranged and produced each song demonstrating that she can “do it all” in the music industry. With A Mover el Esqueleto Jossie created a new style, fusing cumbia with salsa.
