Multi-Instrumentalist-Joyce Sampson Music

Joyce Sampson is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.   She has been playing music since childhood and has toured extensively as a bass player and backing vocalist in original bands and in cover bands that played for the Armed Forces Entertainment Group. 

In 2019, she began songwriting for artists, and within two years, her hard work and talent led to two cuts and releases: “If Heaven was a House” by award-winning and Billboard-topping country and bluegrass artist, Kristy Cox (Billy Blue Records label), and “Get Out” by independent Canadian country artist Tianna Woods.  

In 2022, a lyric line Joyce wrote was chosen by artist Alex Boyé to be part of his Suicide Prevention Anthem “If You Leave Now.”
