Primary Instrument: Saxophone

Joyce Spencer

A native of South Louisiana, Joyce's musical influence came early and often because her grandfather (Freeman Fontenot) was a musician and one of the originators of Zydeco music. Most of the family gatherings included music and dance, along with the strong influence of blues, jazz, R&B, gospel and zydeco. All of this contributed and influenced her musical development and style. Also, Joyce’s instrumental music education degree provided knowledge and training in other musical styles, including classical and jazz, which has allowed her to be more creative in writing and composing music.

Joyce started playing the clarinet in middle school; however, she switched to the tenor sax in 12th grade. Later, she added the alto sax and flute in college. After an approximate 20-year hiatus, Joyce returned to her love and passion for music and released her first CD, “Sweet Dreams”, in 2010. Now, you will find Joyce and her band, Expressions, playing in several venues and events in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. You will also hear her tracks on several radio stations throughout the world....
