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 song and the strong influence of blues, jazz, R&B, gospel, and the charismatic flavor of south Louisiana were all elements of her musical development.

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 song and the strong influence of blues, jazz, R&B, gospel, and the charismatic flavor of south Louisiana were all elements of her musical development. Also, her 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. Many artists have influenced Joyce; however, some of her influences on the saxophone are John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Ronnie Laws, David Sanborn, Gerald Albright, Kenny G., etc. Even with limited sources to study music, Joyce’s musical experience began on the clarinet in middle school; however, she started playing 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. 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.

Although Joyce is a solo artist and has her own band, Expressions, she is also a member of The Faith Band. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
