Gwendy Joysen''s powerhouse vocals and skillful songwriting strike a resonant chord in her listeners that excites and calms us at the same time. With varied roots in alternative pop, blues-influenced rock and folk music, her left of center songs cover the gamut but tend to dwell on the healing side of our humanness. On her own indie label, DayFlower Records, Gwendy’s full length releases include her brand new CD "Love Is Stronger” as well as her debut record, “…and miles to go” (2004) and her Inclusive Inspirational CD “Sacred” (2005). She has also released a 4 song EP entitled “When In Rome,” “Be the Change” her 2004 CD single & 2 spoken word projects.
Her anxiously anticipated new CD "Love Is Stronger" is a diverse mix of tunes that clearly exhibit Gwendy''s lyrical mastery, emotional maturity and her freshly seasoned production talents. She brings a wicked blend of vintage sounds and fresh sonic colors to this new record by not only her own skills but by knowing who to hire. With tunes co-produced by Justin Tricomi & Adam McGill of The Republic Tigers, there is a young brilliance to this record that gracefully marries the excellence of experience, attracting listeners of all ages and influences!
Over the years, Gwendy has been honored with the generous support & collaboration of such musicians as Bela Fleck’s long-time saxophonist extrodinaire Jeff Coffin (appears on “…and miles to go”), who has also played with the likes of Van Morrison and Delbert McClinton. Rich Aspinwall, who has worked with legends EmmyLou Harris, The Indigo Girls, Garth Brooks and many more, offered her his expertise and support as she grew as a young performer. Aspinwall produced & engineered cuts on her previous CDs and recently mixed her upcoming new release. She has worked with greats such as Rosemary Butler, background vocalist for James Taylor, and performed background vocals for A&M Records, Mercury, EMI & Forerunner. She has sung & written with Will Rambeaux (Faith Hill, Sherrié Austin), recording artist Patsy Moore (Warner Brothers), and Dawn Thomas (Anita Baker, Earth Wind & Fire, Faith Hill) to name a few.
Although she has opened for musical greats like Patty Larkin, her work often supports speakers & authors of great thinking. Gwendy''s single "Not Enough" has been selected as the theme song for GLBT publisher Rainbow Legend''s new book release & tour of DRAGONFLY STORIES! Joysen has opened for New York Times Best Selling Authors like Marianne Williamson in Los Angeles, Gary Zukav in Kansas City and with Will Bowen extensively. Her song "When I Change My Mind" was co-written with Alex Cordero and produced by Gwendy along with Justin Tricomi and Adam McGill. This deep & motivating though light hearted song was written in support of the Complaint Free movement started by Rev. Will Bowen with his congregation, now dubbed "The Complaint Free Church." Other artists that Gwendy has performed in support of include Margaret Starbird, Edweine Gaines and Jadon Cascio.
Gwendy began performing as a teenager, playing mostly acoustic sets and later shifting into alternative pop rock. Her songwriting started even earlier, at the tender age of nine. As a youngster, she performed frequently at Nashville hot spots like The Bluebird Cafe and 12th and Porter and later she independently made her way across the country in coffee houses, clubs and house parties.
As a performer, Gwendy Joysen is dynamic, diverse and edifying, all of which she seamlessly accomplishes through pure self-expression. An artist beyond category, her identifiable voice is powerful, passionate and memorable. Her guitar work and physical expression on stage, as well as her intense connection with the music and musicians, allow her to deliver a show with powerful punch. In her left-of-center, soul-gripping performances, she takes you on a journey from groove to ballad to rocker, bringing together a variety of styles in a refreshingly unique way while holding you close with subtle familiarity, all the while leaving her audience energized and inspired. Both powerful and provocative, Gwendy''s music is consistently gripping and ever evolving, with a resonant call to love-in-action.
