Spencer Joyce





Short Bio

Not your Mom's white guy singer/songwriter, Spencer Joyce defies the 'singer/songwriter' stereotype with a sound composed of Ed Sheeran pop, Mumford & Sons folk, Sublime punk reggae, John Mayer blues, and Dave Matthews jam band sensibilities.

Spencer's lyrics speak of hardships he's gone through, and encourages the listener to keep their heads up in tough times, and are shaped by Spencer's unique upbringing from being born in small town North Carolina, raised in suburban Northern Virginia, and residing in bayside Maryland.

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 single, Bonds Like These, which garnered over 5,000 streams on Spotify in less than two weeks, and opening for Tropidelic at Tin Roof Baltimore for the 2019 Frozen Harbor Music Festival.
