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
Joyce's prior performance experience includes orchestras, concert
bands, wind ensembles, choirs, jazz bands, stage plays, musicals,
etc. She also leads her band, Joyce Spencer & Expressions
Although her environment was not conducive to extensive musical
training as a child, her participation in the high school band was
enough to spark her passion to achieve a bachelor of music degree,
where she studied both classical and jazz.
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. Since that time, Joyce has been
honored with various awards and nominations every year and her
music can be heard on radio stations all over the world.
