Joy Dennis is a vibrant, young R&B/ Soul/ Jazz singer/ songwriter from Jacksonville, FL. Raised by her mother, the singer spent many of her younger days in the west Jacksonville neighborhood of Mixon surrounded by generations of family members. Following in the footsteps of her grandmother, Joy developed a passion for music at an early age, influenced by artists such as Jill Scott and Billie Holiday. It's no surprise, then, that she offers a throwback retro sound to complement her powerful voice. Ri Magazine quotes, “Joy Dennis exhibits indie artistry at its highest caliber, definitely for the mature and sophisticated. Her vocal skill can be compared to the likes of Natalie Cole, Jill Scott and even Angie Stone. Joy Dennis’ soulful-urban-jazzy-melodic vibe hits all the right spots!”
Though she has been active in the music industry since 2004, she hit the Indie Circuit globally with her debut single “He Awaits” which was released in February of 2010. The track was instantly acclaimed as a highlight, as well as a fan favorite on the album, “Music Is”, released just 3 months later.
