Born to a Japanese mother and Black father, independent R&B singer-songwriter Joyce Wrice delivers a sound that resonates with this generation. Known for her sweet lyrics and distinct tone, the San Diego native’s breakout debut album Overgrown landed on numerous “Best R&B Albums of 2021” lists and solidified Wrice as one of the genre’s most promising stars.
Executive produced by record-breaking, GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter/producer D'Mile (Silk Sonic, H.E.R., The Carters) – winner of the highly coveted 2022 “Record of the Year” GRAMMY Award and the first artist in GRAMMY history to win "Song of the Year" two years consecutively – the star-studded Overgrown showcases Wrice’s range and versatility effortlessly alongside an impressive A-list roster of collaborators including Freddie Gibbs, Lucky Daye, KAYTRANADA, Masego, Westside Gunn, UMI, and Devin Morrison.
In support of the LP, Wrice gave electrifying live performances supporting multiple GRAMMY Award winner Lucky Daye on the entirety of his 26-date North American Candydrip Tour in addition to making her debut at numerous festivals across the U.S. and Europe including Day N Vegas, H.E.R.’s Lights On, Sol Blume, Broccoli City, Cross the Tracks, and Summer Walker’s annual A Hot Summer Night in LA with Jazmine Sullivan, Ari Lennox, Saucy Santana, and Doechii.
Following in the footsteps of Solange and Destiny’s Child, Wrice can currently be heard as the current theme song vocalist for The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder streaming now exclusively on Disney+.
