The time has finally arrived for Joyce Wrice.
After years of teasing us with her Stay Around EP and features on tracks with Dom Kennedy, Blu, Polyester the Saint, and other West Coasters, the LA-based singer has finally come through with the release of her debut album, Overgrown.
“My debut album is finally here! It’s so special to me because it’s taken me some time to get here,” Wrice explains. “I grew up an only child and music, specifically, hip-hop and soul music, brought me so much joy. To be able to create my own body of work is a dream come true.”
“We made Overgrown over a span of three years and this music is a result of me tending my garden. My garden, my emotions, and my thoughts are full of a variety of colorful flowers but they were overrun by weeds. These sessions and collaborations were opportunities for me to do my gardening and create value from everything that I was going through. My intention for this album is to inspire and encourage people to never give up on themselves and embrace your journey with joy and confidence despite the struggle to get to where you want to be.”
Executive produced by three-time GRAMMY Award nominee and 2021 Golden Globe Award-nominated producer D’Mile (H.E.R., Victoria Monet, The Carters), the album is equipped with features from Westside Gunn, Lucky Daye (on “Falling In Love,” which first appeared on his Table For Two EP), Kaytranada, Devin Morrison, Masego, Mndsgn, and ESTA.
