Joyce Spencer Joyce Spencer

As an award winning saxophonist, based in Dallas, TX, Joyce Spencer is a force to be reckoned with as a multi-instrumentalist of saxophone (soprano, alto and tenor) flutist, singer, songwriter and composer. The best way to describe Joyce is flexible and adaptable, as she is also a multi-genre artist of traditional to contemporary jazz, R&B, funk, fusion, Gospel./Christian, blues and pop giving her an added gift to provide the spice of variety to each event or even cater to one genre depending on the demands of the venue. Joyce's prior performance experience includes orchestras, concert bands, wind ensembles, choirs, jazz bands, stage plays, musicals, etc. Currently, she leads her band, Joyce Spencer & Expressions. She also served as musical director in her local church for approximately three years. Although her environment was not conducive to musical training as a child, her participation in the high school band playing clarinet and then saxophone in 12th grade was enough to spark her passion to achieve a bachelor's degree in music, where she studied both classical and jazz with a concentration on saxophone and flute. This was after Joyce majored in Radio and TV broadcasting the first year. Later family responsibilities took precedence over her musical career for an extended period of time; however, Joyce returned to music professionally in 2010 with sheer determination and released her first CD, “Sweet Dreams”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
