Spencer Joyce / Bio

Having gone through one too many troubling times in his life, at age 17 the North Carolina-born, DMV-based dude known as Spencer Joyce picked up the guitar and his healing process began. As he played more and more he began to write songs, and in doing so quickly discovered his natural knack for crafting melodies and converting his innermost feelings, be it happy, sad, angry, or goofy, into heart-tugging lyrics. In March 2012 he began recording demos of these songs on the GarageBand app on his iPhone with no plans on releasing an album. That is until a chance meeting with a close musician friend of his in May 2013 sparked his interest in putting out an actual album.

Now Spencer has passed his 21st birthday, and he’s just put the finishing touches on his debut album, ‘Overnight Rockstar’. Spencer wears his influences of The Beatles, The Who, Oasis, Neil Young, Nirvana and more on his sleeve in his very autobiographical debut. He plans to tour extensively as a one-man band through the DC-metro area, Virginia, North Carolina, and many more places in the coming year, so be on the lookout! What Spencer hopes you’ll get from listening to his album and coming to his show is not just a rockin’ good time, but an intense motivation to follow your passion all the way to your dreams. Because he believes, as he sings in ‘Overnight Rockstar’s opening track ‘Rolling Along’, “You’ve gotta roll along with your heart and soul/they’ll get ya closer to all your goals!’
