Ann Saunderson (born in Birmingham, UK) is a British dance/soul artist. Ann Nanton met Kevin Saunderson in the UK in 1988 and soon after married him and moved to the US, appearing on several of his recordings as a vocalist. She also recorded under the aliases Surreal and Karen Joy, and was lead vocalist of dance group Kaos. She also worked with Inner City, her husband Kevin Saunderson's band. One of Saunderson's most famous contributions to Inner City was in their classic 1992 hit, "Pennies From Heaven". The late 90s were rather inactive and it was only in 2000 that Saunderson began to mix with new producers/acts. In the early 2000s, she worked with the American techno band Octave One. She provided guest vocals on two of their single releases, "Blackwater", and "Somedays". All of these projects were large club hits and had great critical success, especially "Blackwater". Saunderson also featured on tracks on Octave One's debut album. Additionally, she has provided vocals for singles by Slam "Lie To Me" (2004), Dave Lee's "You're Not Alone" (2006) and more recently Notenshun's "Move A Little Closer" (2007).

As widely misreported, this Ann Saunderson never went by the alias Ruth Joy, but did use the alias Karen Joy. Ruth Joy was an entirely different artist, also from the UK and also involved in house and soul music.
