About Joyce Rouse
Her songs have been used extensively in educational venues and by international environmental and peace organizations such as the United Nations, UNESCO, and International Earth Charter, as well as the Smithsonian Institute.
In August, 1995, the United States celebrated the 75th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote. Joyce wrote and performed the theme song, Standing on the Shoulders. This song has introduced Joyce to the gracious wisdom and power of women's groups around the world.
She performs regularly at a wide variety of venues—anywhere people who care about the Earth gather. She weaves threads of science, spirit and art into each concert, and continues to write inspiring music in many styles with one goal in mind: "Helping Heal the Planet One Song at a Time."
