Joyce Grennan / Bio

Joyce Grennan is a singer/songwriter who is Canadian born from the East Coast of Canada and moved to the West Coast years ago and presently live in Vancouver, BC.

Joyce has been involved with numerous bands over the years and has sung many styles of music from country, rock, folk, pop, gospel, R&B, and jazz. One of her most thrilling band experience's goes back in the 80's in having the pleasure and privilege of working with Al Harlow, Rocket Norton, and John Hall from Prism who formed a band called "The Buzz" and Joyce was the lead singer singing tunes such as River Deep Mountain High, and dance/pop tunes. Then Rocket formed a band call the Rocket Norton R & B Explosions which was a 12 piece band with three female and one male singer.

Brought up with country music Joyce ended up writing and recording country and making many trips to Nashville, TN over the years.

Just to name a few of some of the incredible writers Joyce has written with are: Karren Pell who use to be one of Reba McIntyre's staff writers, Stephanie Brown who wrote with Garth Brooks, Roger Dilon who was successful in having a #1 hit song titled Sticks & Stones recorded by Tracy Lawrence, and the late Larry Wayne Clark. Sadly, Larry Wayne Clark passed away in 2013 from cancer - a successful songwriter who's presence is missed. Larry also produced a couple of songs of Joyce's in Nashville, which will be released in the near future. One song Larry and Joyce wrote titled "It Scares Me" was originally released to radio and made it to number 55 on the Canadian Charts back in the early 90's. Joyce took the song to Nashville and ended up rewriting the song and making another recording of it with Buzz Stone producing and publishing it. It has yet to be re-released as the new version to radio.

Joyce also has worked with Tom Harrison who produced and played drums on four of her songs in Vancouver BC. Two of the songs Tom produced included Al Harlow from the band Prism play amazing slide guitar and electric. Those songs are on Joyce's unreleased CD Love & Emotion. However, only one song was released to radio which Tom Harrison cowrote with Joyce Grennan titled "You Wouldn't Know."

Upcoming soon Joyce Grennan's plan is to release a new CD of her recent upcoming recordings. Most of the recordings have been recorded in Nashville and the rest in Vancouver. Joyce is excited to soon release her long awaited music.
