Short Bio

Annapolis, MD's Spencer Joyce is not your Mom's "singer/songwriter" stereotype. He produces catchy tunes with influences of folk, reggae, punk, blues, and jam band sensibilities. Spencer's lyrics speak of live, the daily grind, and being the best version of yourself. Spencer has been playing solo or with his backing band, Spencer Joyce's Open Bar Band around the mid-Atlantic for the past 5 years, opening for The Unlikely Candidates, Brick & Mortar, Tropidelic, Badfish, People's Blues Of Richmond, and Edjacated Phools.

Spencer released his debut single, Elephant In A Jar, in February 2015, leading him to becoming a regular act in bars & clubs all across Baltimore, DC, Northern Virginia, and Richmond within the next 2 years.

July 2017 saw Spencer release his debut EP, Bad Poker Face, leading him to get booked for festivals such as The Nextival in Annapolis, Artscape in Baltimore, and an opening slot for Higher Education at Rams Head Live in Baltimore. Tracks from the EP also landed many licensing deals for film, TV, and retail stores handled by Songtradr.

2018 saw Spencer make his debut at festivals such as Frozen Harbor Music Festival in Baltimore, First Sunday Arts Festival in Annapolis, and an opening slot for The Unlikely Candidates and Brick & Mortar at Metro Gallery in Baltimore.

Highlights of Spencer's 2019 include the release of his new album, Songs About Nothing, which has garnered over 45,000 streams on Spotify in less than 3 months, opening for Tropidelic at Tin Roof Baltimore for the 2019 Frozen Harbor Music Festival, and opening for Badfish and People's Blues Of Richmond at the 2019 Hightopps Backstage Bash.
