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. The CD is a collection of instrumental (alto/soprano sax and flute) and vocal music created to calm, sooth, and bring healing to the deep recesses of the soul. Her music has been labeled Inspirational Jazz, Smooth Jazz, and Smooth/Contemporary Gospel or Christian, but she plays all styles, including straight ahead and mainstream Jazz. She was recently nominated Best Female Artist by the South Florida Gospel Music Awards and was awarded by the ASCAPLUS Awards panel for original work on her first CD and an original musical score entitled, “Glory to God”. 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 Patrick Cook Radio Show, Wendy Williams’ WNUR 89.3 FM Inspirational Jazz hour, Smooth Jazz Radio with Audiorealm.com internet radio, Tehillah Praise TPBN Radio, KJAZZ (itrack radio), etc.
