Profile Information

About Me:
Joyce was reared in a small town with limited resources to study music; however, it did not discourage her passion. She started playing clarinet in middle school, but grew very fond of the tenor saxophone in the 12th grade. Later, she added the alto sax and flute in college where she majored in instrumental music education. After an approximate 20-year hiatus, Joyce returned to her love and passion for music and released her first CD, “Sweet Dreams”, in 2010.

The CD is a collection of instrumental (alto/soprano sax and flute) and vocal music created to calm, soothe, and bring healing to your soul. Her music has been labeled Inspirational Jazz, Smooth Jazz, and Smooth/Contemporary Gospel, but she plays all styles.

Joyce was nominated Best Female Artist by the South Florida Gospel Music Awards in 2010, and received The Heart and Soul Inspiration Award from Coffee Talk Jazz in 2011. She was also awarded by the ASCAPLUS Awards panel for original work on the CD and other compositions, including an original musical score entitled, “Glory to God” for two consecutive years. In August 2012, she was honored to become the music director at Faith Missionary Baptist Church aka "The House of Faith" in Rowlett, TX, and in November 2012, an endorsing artist for Conn-Selmer/Yanagisawa. In February 2013, Joyce received the Garland NAACP Music Award.

Joyce has been featured in several radio and television shows such as Joshua’s House for Christian Artists, Jazzy100.com streaming music and commentary around the world, GHP Radio Network, Bethlehem Baptist Church Television Program, The Ester Davis Talk Show, The Dallas Spot Light – “The Grind” Talk Show, Dallas Late Night Gospel Show, LA Jazz, Wendy Williams’ WNUR 89.3 FM Inspirational Jazz hour, Smooth Jazz Radio Channel internet radio, Tehillah Praise TPBN Radio, Coffee Talk Jazz Radio, Jazzin' 'Em Up with Cres O'Neal, KJAZZ radio, The Groove Internet Radio, KKEI Radio, and more. Joyce was recently honored for her accomplishments in a published article by “ All About Jazz “, a leading jazz music website for industry professionals and enthusiasts,” entitled “Take Five with Joyce Spencer”. She was also honored to make the front cover the Spirit Alive Magazine's October 2011 issue, and the front cover of her hometown newspaper, "Basile Weekly", among many other online newspapers, blogs, etc.

Joyce is a solo artist and she plays in several venues with her band, Expressions, which includes H. Tyrone Walls (keys/band leader), Tony Key (drums/vocals),Robert Green (bass), and Bin Lee (lead guitar). She is also a member of Tony Key and The Faith Band.
